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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
