PVA-TS filament is our preferred, cold water soluble, supporting material for dual extruder 3D printing. The modification on the raw material results in a filament that is much more thermally stable than a regular PVA. It also bonds well to PLA, ABS and PET-G, which enlarges the application field significantly. This polyvinyl alcohol-based filament is non toxic and biodegradable once dissolved in water. Easy printing, much less failures and easy removability makes this the supporting material you should try.

PVA-TS features:

  • Improved formula with enhanced stability in printing
  • Excellent water solubility
  • Thermally much more stable than a regular PVA
  • Good bonding to PLA, PET-G and ABS
  • Biodegradable when dissolved in water

Recommended temperature for heated bed is ± 35-60˚C. Do not exceed a printing temperature of 225˚C, because then PVA crystallizes quickly and it will no longer flow and/or dissolve in water. . The speed at which the product dissolves in water is dependent on the volume of the printed object and the temperature of the water. PVA-TS dissolves in cold water. Higher water temperature (up to 70˚C is no problem) will accelerate the dissolution. PVA-TS can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.

PVA-SB is our specially developed water soluble solution for dual extrusion when you need to print with styrene based materials. PVA-SB has an excellent adherence to ABS, ABS Zero, and TPU. PVA-SB dissolves slightly slower than regular PVA and it is advised to dissolve in warm water, preferably in circulated water. PVA-SB can handle higher nozzle temperatures (<250°C) without the risk of cross linking and clogging the nozzle and is therefore perfect for printing with styrene based materials which typically print at higher temperatures..

PVA-SB features:

  • Great adhesion to styrene based materials
  • Stable at higher nozzle temperatures (<250°C)
  • Performs in heated environments up to 55-60 °C
  • Good dissolvability in luke warm water
  • Biodegradable when dissolved in water

PVA-SB works with most adhesion techniques used for technical materials, but is best used with specialized 3d printing adhesion sprays or a glue stick.
PVA-SB can be used on most Dual printing desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.
