Industrial filament PC/ABS is here! January 24 2020
PC/ABS is the third filament in a row that has been released by Fillamentum Industrial so far this year. Polycarbonate/acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene or in short PC/ABS is suitable for all commercial FFF/FDM printers that use 1,75 mm filament diameter.
Like most of its predecessors, PC/ABS is suitable for prototyping. The excellent properties of this material make it great for application in the automotive industry. It's durable with excellent mechanical properties and impact resistance, especially at low temperatures. PC/ABS is also resistant to high temperatures and can be used as a part of electrically stressed parts of consumer or office electronics. It's perfect for printing parts of printers, copiers, game consoles, or keyboards.
Another use-case for this material are airbags or the interior parts of car bodies as it resists mechanical and thermal strain. It's a filament that is light but strong at the same time and shows minimal signs of wear even after numerous uses. The hardness of PC/ABS is comparable to Vinyl 303, Nylon CF15 Carbon, or CPE CF112 Carbon.
A notable aspect of PC/ABS shows is it's excellent printing properties. We strongly recommend keeping the printing temperature at 260–280 °C, bed temperature in a rage of 90–105 °C, and the printing speed at 30–55 mm/s. We do not recommend fast cooling, as this could lead to warping and shrinking. This also means that less cooling helps to make printed parts stronger as the layers have enough time to bond well.

4 new HIPS colors December 06 2019
High Impact Polystyrene or HIPS is a perfect material for prototyping or functional objects. This is why we are now offering four new colors to give a chance to make a functional object also aesthetically pleasing or practical color marking.
- HIPS Extrafill "Metallic Grey"
- HIPS Extrafill "Sky Blue"
- HIPS Extrafill "Signal Red"
Thanks to the clean surface finish, HIPS is perfect for printing support parts. These printed parts are dissolvable in Lemonesol, which is a special liquid that doesn't affect the quality of PLA or ABS object.
It offers excellent mechanical properties, such as strength, impact resistance, toughness, and heat resistance. This filament is resistant to moisture and water, thus it is ideal for application in long-term contact with hot water.
Moreover, HIPS has great dielectric strength and resistivity properties, meaning it can be used in the production of electrical and electronic equipment. It's also certified for food contact, which makes it perfect for the food and packaging industry.
During the printing process of HIPS filament, small quantities of styrene are released into the atmosphere.
- Diamteres: 1.75 or 2.85
- Diameter tolerance: +/- 0,05 mm
- Working temperature: 230 - 250 °C
- Heated pad: 90 - 105 °C
First printable polypropylene by Fillamentum October 03 2019
Within few weeks Fillamentum Industrial will release new material under the name PP 2320. This polypropylene, which, thanks to its unique properties, will easily become an integral part of your production. It took nearly a year of development and technological testing to bring this material to perfection.
3D printing is no longer a privilege of hobby users and designers. Fillamentum Industrial aims at the field of industrial applications. Our Industrial materials will increase production efficiency, saving your time and costs. The clear evidence is this new polypropylene, which Fillamentum presented at TCT Show in Birmingham.
PP 2320 has excellent electrical insulation properties and will find its application as an alternative to PVC in the insulation of electrical cables. Like Vinyl 303, which was launched this March, it is not absorbent, so it's ideal as part of a pipeline, in making of tanks and sinks. The high temperature and chemical resistance make PP 2320 a structural component for chemical tools that also require high strength. PP 2320 by Fillamentum Industrial achieves high tensile strength over competing polypropylene filaments with greater elongation.
Polypropylene of Fillamentum Industrial has countless applications, but another unforgettable advantage is the ease of printing. PP 2320 is printed in the temperature range 225-245° C. For maximum strength we recommend printing at the upper limit of the printing temperatures (240–245 °C). Large objects should be printed in a heated chamber.
We offer a unique option for the pre-order of this material.
