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 Fuzzy filament was developed to create unique objects with a special surface. The layers typical for FDM 3D printing are blurred, almost disappeared, as a fluffy, fuzzy surface is formed over them. This is combined with a matt effect.
Filaticum Fuzzy is PLA-based filament, therefore PLA printing settings can be used as a baseline, and then, the surface texture of the printed object can be modified by varying the printing temperature. Recommended bed temperature: 60 °C.
For an even more special look, with a lower flow a surface with “craters” can be achieved.
In addition to the unique surface, the impact resistance of the material is also very good, it is easy to sand, post-process and glue also. The Z-axis adhesion of the print is also better compared to standard PLA filament.
To achieve the characteristic surface, in addition to PLA this filament contains additives, making it somewhat stiffer than usual. Due to the nature of the filament, it is prone to stringing, but this can be easily removed after printing without traces.
The spools weigh 750 grams, but they contain the same amount of filament length as standard 1 kg PLA filaments, so the material requirement should be calculated accordingly.
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.
Video about how the Model filament (part of the product group) works in practice:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
