The PLA raw material of PLA Advanced was developed especially for manufacturing 3D printing filaments, which has to meet higher printing needs. The objects printed with this filament are stronger and more durable.
Filaticum PLA Advanced also has a higher heat resistance, up to 85 0C. With this value, it also competes against PETG and ABS filaments. This filament is less brittle, and with excellent layer adhesion we can achieve an exceptionally even surface and more precise printing. The surface of printed object can be shiny at elevated printing temperature and matt at lower temperature, but this depends on the printer also.
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.
This filament is an improved version of our Filaticum PLA Advanced product, and it provides higher quality in terms of mechanical properties. Its PLA raw material is produced specially for 3D printing filaments, which we made even more unique with special additives; thus, it can be used as an alternative to PETG and ABS. What distinguishes from PLA Advanced is that objects printed from PRO filament are much more flexible and impact resistant.
Filaticum PLA Advanced PRO is a really user-friendly, easy-to-print filament. It adheres easily to the bed, its layer adhesion is also excellent, thus providing an even surface and more precise printing result. Higher printing temperature (225C0) is required to achieve better mechanical properties.
PLA filament designed for printing lithophanes, for beginners and professionals.
The uniquely developed off-white colour gives a beautifully bright appearance on thin surfaces and a darker, contrasting appearance on thicker surfaces. Printed objects will look like real photographs. Thanks to the additive used to achieve the special optical effect, the printed layers are also less visible, they almost disappear.
Filaticum PLA Budget filament, just like other Filaticum PLA products, provide excellent printing results. Their shrinkage is minimal, you can print them even on an unheated bed. They are available in black, white, blue, red and silver-gray colors, on 750-gram rolls at a reasonable price.
Filaticum Essence – just like Filaticum Model and Gypsum – is member of the product group containing gypsum. Their common characteristic is that the added gypsum changes the usual properties of the plastic, both functionally and aesthetically. The mineral content of Filaticum Essence is minimal, it does not contain pigments, and this combination resulted in an easy-to-use filament. The surface of printed objects is homogeneous and matt. Layers are barely visible, even in case of objects with shorter printing time, and the usual surface roughness is blurred. Mechanical post-processing of objects (polishing, carving, etc.) is easier than in case of standard PLA.

Filaticum Gypsum – just like Filaticum Model and Essence – is member of the product group containing gypsum. Their common characteristic is that the added gypsum changes the usual properties of the plastic, both functionally and aesthetically. Filaticum Gypsum has the highest mineral content, thus it is yellowish, looks like rock or gypsum. The printed objects can be shaped very easily: they can be cut with a sharp tool, sanded, and polished, thus facilitating the post-processing of the object. It is easy to paint also, even with water-based paint. Due to the high mineral content the suggested printing temperature is lower than in case of standard PLA: 185-210 0C.

Filaticum Model – just like Filaticum Gypsum and Essence – is member of the product group containing gypsum. Their common characteristic is that the added gypsum changes the usual properties of the plastic, both functionally and aesthetically. The mineral content in the Filaticum Model is medium, less brittle than Gypsum filament, as for its basic characteristics it is between Gypsum and Essence filaments. This filament contains white pigment also, so the printed objects are off-white, with a matte finish, and the details are well outlined, which is useful for modelers. The printed models can be painted much easily than those printed with standard PLA or ABS filaments. The object can be sanded – both dry and wet – , and it is easy to cut, thus most accurate models can be printed with Filaticum Model. UV-resistant filament. It is one of the most versatile Filaticum products.
This PLA-based filament offers enhanced possibilities for industrial applications. The thermal stability of objects printed with Filaticum Engineering is extremely high, they could bear up to 140 °C heat, without any heat treatment after printing. Filaticum Engineering has excellent impact resistant and durability properties compared to the basic PLA. This performance is due to different additives and lubricants. Based on the tests, the printed objects do not warp and they keep their shape well. Thanks to this characteristics, Filaticum Engineering can be used for metal replacement also. The surface of objects printed with Filaticum Engineering filament is matt.
Thanks to its unique recipe, Filaticum PLA High Impact filament provides the printed object with high impact resistance, comparable or even higher than PETG provides. The flexibility of the filament is similar to that of polypropylene, but printing with it is as simple as with any PLA filament. The impact resistance of the filament depends largely on the printing parameters, it is preferable to print at higher temperatures – up to 225 0C.
Filaticum Electrical products are used mainly in the electronics and automotive industry where electrostatic charging of the printed object can damage the product. Objects printed with Filaticum CONDUCTIVE, ESD or ANTISTATIC do not charge electrostatically due to the special carbon and chemical additives. Additionally, the dust and fine powder does not stick on the surface.
To decide for which application which filament suits the best, can be determined mainly experimentally. It depends on the electrical and mechanical requirements of the objects, and the 3D printing parameters. Filaticum Antistatic has the best mechanical properties, similar to standard PLA. Filaticum Conductive is the most rigid in this line, because of the used carbon powder and fiber, required for conductivity. Filaticum ESD is somewhere in the middle range.
Filaticum Antistatic: its main feature is the immediate and permanent antistatic effect. Its important characteristic also that it does not absorb the moisture content of the air. It keeps most physical properties of PLA, and it has increased impact strength compared to PLA. It can be produced in any color. No sloughing, off gassing or blooming.
For proper printing results use PLA printing settings: we recommend 210-230 °C printing temperature, at least 0.2 mm nozzle, and printing speed no higher than 90 mm / sec. Bed temperature 40-60 °C, usually any type of surface can be used.
Filaticum Support is a PLA-based filament, developed for 3D printings which need support.
As opposed to the soluble support materials Filaticum Support is an easy to break-away filament, so the vast majority of the support material can be removed quickly. Any remaining support on the surface can be completely removed by sanding. The result is a clean printing surface, there is no or minimal need for post-processing.
Also suitable for printing the complexly structured supports. It is compatible with FDM filaments and works well with them.
Printing with Filaticum Support is simple, settings are similar to PLA’s: printing temperature 190-215 0C, bed temperature 60 0C.
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.
The new generation ABS filament is designed for printing more durable, impact resistant, heat resistant objects. Thanks to the automotive-grade raw material and additives, the shrinkage of an object printed with Filaticum ABS is very low, while its impact resistance is extremely high. The surface of the printed object has a matt, silky effect.
