Objects printed with Filaticum Foam have got a foamy, spongy texture. The hard 3D printed foam has open cell structure. Due to the foamed structure, the layers are barely visible, and it has a nice, smooth surface. However, it can be easily sanded, cut, painted and shaped as needed. The beige color variant looks natural and the black one has a particularly shiny matte finish.
The structure of the foam, the quality and structure of the surface can be widely modified by changing the printing settings.
Objects with the required density and foam structure can be printed by setting the parameters accordingly.
At higher temperatures, lower flow and speed, and with a large nozzle the lightest foam can be produced. Using the standard PLA settings, the result is a tough foam and impact resistance. The density of an object made of Filaticum Foam is 50-60% of that of an object printed with standard PLA. Depending on the settings, it can be varied from 0.6 g / cm3 up to 1.2 g / cm3.
Filaticum Foam is suitable for applications where light 3D printed objects are needed, e.g. automotive industry, modelling or founding. Its foamed structure can be exploited in printing art objects, sculptures, and biologically active substrates. It can be applied as support material also.
500-gram Filaticum products are winded on a transparent plastic spool. Spools are sealed with shrink foil, and we deliver them in an environmentally friendly cardboard box which is also covered with shrink wrap.
Our filaments are also available in 1.5 kg in the webshop:
If you need larger spools, please contact us!
Filaticum PLA filaments are bio-composite products.
Why bio? The raw materials used are typically natural, derived from renewable resources. The PLA’s raw material is corn, and the additives used in some filaments – e.g. gypsum, carbon fiber, carbon powder – are also natural materials.
Why composite? The filaments contain additives, which make possible to produce filaments with different mechanical, physical and chemical properties, in line with the further application needs. These additives have a positive effect on printability also, and they modify the surface structure of the printed objects.
Thanks to composites, special filaments can be designed and manufactured for different applications. You can read more about composites in our blogpost.
Filaticum filaments can be used in all common 3D printers based on FDM/FFF technology.
The used pigments result in saturated, bright, and friendly colors. The saturation is retained even on objects printed with thinner wall thicknesses. The pigments reach the best thermal stability value according to DIN 54001 and also achieve the best light resistance value according to DIN 53388.
Food safety compliance
Most of the raw materials and pigments used in the production of Filaticum products comply with the regulations in EU (EC Resolution 98(1) and Commission Regulation 10/2011/EC).
Raw material of Filaticum filaments is RoHS certified and REACH compliant.
Filaticum products do not contain or use any hazardous chemicals in the manufacturing process.
Filaticum products are made from natural raw materials and are biodegradable under industrial composting conditions.
