Thanks to special additives and pigments, Filaticumt PLA is characterized by easy printability and saturated colors. Even when you print in one layer, you will get the same color you see on the spool. Printable in a wide temperature and printing speed range. The Filaticum PLA can be used without heated bed, and even with an open 3D printer you will get good printing quality.
Objects printed with traditional PLA filament can lose their shape and partially deform at temperatures above 60 °C. Filaticum Heat Resistant overcomes this problem.If the objects are printed with Filaticum Heat Resistant filament are heat-treated at a temperature of 80 to 100 °C for 30 to 60 minutes after printing, the object can later withstand a heat load of 130 °C.
Filaticum Antibacterial is a special filament which provides antimicrobial protection against a wide variety of microorganisms. Its antibacterial and fungicide properties are based on metal ions. In objects printed with Filaticum Antibacterial filament, the built-in metal ion complexes block the metabolic processes of bacteria and fungi by an enzymatic reaction, thus preventing their growth. A similar mechanism is present at disinfectants, various preservatives, wash-off and leave-on products.
Filaticum Antibacterial provides lifelong lasting antimicrobial protection against Gram positive (e.g. Enterococcus, Bacillus etc.) and Gram-negative (e.g. Salmonella, Legionella etc.) bacteria, and different fungi, yeasts and algae fungus. Its use is advantageous where the presence of these microorganisms is harmful, e.g. in hospitals, shops, households, beauty salons. With Filaticum Antibacterial, objects exposed to microbial infection can be 3D printed.
The active metal ion substance is incorporated in the PLA polymer matrix, and it does not have any negative impact on PLA’s favorable mechanical and printing properties. Filaticum Antibacterial can be printed in wide range temperature: 195-215 0C, without changing antibacterial properties. Solubility of the active metal ions and their migration to the surface is very low, so the dissolution from 3D printed objects is minimal, providing long-lasting protection for the object.
The active antimicrobial substance has been extensively tested using internationally accepted methods: ISO 22196, ASTM E2180 and JIS standards.
Filaticum Antiviral provides antimicrobial protection for the entire lifetime of 3D printed products. The active substance, built in to the PLA matrix, has been shown to deactivate many kinds of viruses and has been tested to be effective against Feline Coronavirus, H1N1 and Norovirus viruses, among others. The latest tests (according to ISO 21702) by the producer of the active substance confirmed, that the reduction of Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2) germs is much faster than in the control samples without active substance. Thus, the active substance can be used effectively in the protection against Covid-19, however, the antiviral activity of the 3D printed product has to be tested by the manufacturer of the final product in a specialized laboratory.
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.
The strength, hardness, and heat resistance of filament reinforced with glass fiber go far beyond the characteristics of the standard PLA. It can withstand heat of up to 100 0C. The biopolymer-based filament is also suitable for printing lightweight parts, even applicable for replacing metal parts. The printed surface is unique, glassy, so it is also a perfect choice for designers. The warping of objects printed with Filaticum Glass Reinforced is very low. No need for any special nozzle. Recommended printing parameters: 215 0C nozzle, 60 0C bed.
PETG is an ideal choice for 3D printing when reduced warping and high heat resistance are important requirements. Objects printed with PETG are heat resistant up to 85° C, and they are also resistant to chemical influences (e.g. chemicals, solvents, biologically active agents). Printing with PETG is almost as simple as with PLA. PETG is odorless when printing.
