3D Printing Materials
PLA is the most common 3D printing material made from low cost biodegradable material. Applications include fit & function prototypes, low wear game and toy pieces, non functional cosmetic prototypes. PLA is great for high detail and large parts due to its low warping, but is not as strong as other 3d printing plastics. *Available Colors: White, Black, Grey, Silver, Slate, Yellow, Gold, Bronze, Orange, Red, Pink, Purple, Light Blue, Royal Blue, Lime Green, Opal Green, Army Green, Brown.*
Onyx is a micro carbon fiber filled nylon that yields accurate parts with near flawless surface finish. Few materials have the versatility of Onyx; it offers high strength, toughness, and chemical resistance when printed alone, and can be reinforced with Continuous Fibers to yield aluminum-strength parts. Today, there are more than a million Onyx parts in the field transforming manufacturing. *Available Colors: Black.*
Polycarbonate Blend is a very strong and durable material that offers high temperature resistance up to 113°C, good dimensional stability, high impact and wear resistance. PC blend is good for printing smaller functional parts and can tend to warp with larger printed parts or thin features.
*Available Colors: Natural, Black, Grey, Orange.*
PC Blend Carbon Fiber (PCCF) is a PC Blend filled with carbon fibers to improve its strength, toughness and temperature resistance. Unlike the unmodified PC Blend, PCCF comes with great dimensional stability, good resistance to UV light and common chemicals, better tensile strength and toughness, but most importantly with high-temperature resistance. It’s optimal for printing technical components requiring great strength and high temperature tolerance. *Available Colors: Black*
PETG is one of the most commonly used filaments. It is an excellent choice for printing mechanically stressed parts. Compared to PLA, it is more heat resistant, more flexible and less brittle. PETG is a very tough material with good thermal resistance. Its use is universal but especially suitable for mechanical parts and both indoor and outdoor use. PETG has almost no warping, so printing large objects isn’t a problem. *Available Colors: Clear, Signal White, Urban Grey, Anthracite Grey, Galaxy Black, Jet Black, Mango Yellow, Yellow Gold, Terracotta Light, Orange, Carmine Red, Lipstick Red, Chalky Blue, Ultramarine Blue Transparent, Ocean Blue, Pistachio Green, Neon Green Transparent, Jungle Green.*
ASA can be considered a true successor to ABS. Compared to ABS, it’s UV stable, it doesn’t suffer from shrinking so badly. ASA 3D prints are durable, tough and suitable for a wide range of applications. The solidification temperature is also higher compared to PLA and PETG, which gives objects printed from ASA an excellent temperature resistance – there are no signs of deformation up to temperatures near 93 °C. Thanks to all these properties, ASA is especially suitable to print objects meant for long-time outside use. *Available Colors: Natural, Signal White, Galaxy Black, Jet Black, Orange.*
