Transparent PLA filaments have a slight yellowish color, in addition, if you print thicker objects, the transparency almost disappears. With Filaticum High Transparent you can get an almost water-clear finish. It is an easy-to-print filament, in a wide range of printing temperature. The transparency of the printed object can be improved by changing the printing parameters: a nozzle with larger diameter, and the higher temperature and the slower printing also result in more transparent surface.
750-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 2.5 kg in the webshop:
If you need larger spools (4,5 kg or 9 kg), 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.
