Filament

Whether your product must withstand a shock, be elastic, degradable, antistatic or water-soluble, we have the solution for you. At the bottom of the page, you can read more about the filaments; we also recommend the filament type that should be used for your project.

We also offer many different colours you can choose from for your 3D printing, depending on the filament that best suits your project.

Details of filaments

PLA (Polylactic Acid)

The most common and easiest material to achieve good results with. PLA is also one of the more environmentally friendly filaments available. The material is based on renewable resources (plant-based starch) and is biodegradable under given conditions.

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

Oil-based plastic that is useful for the manufacture of durable parts. Relative to PLA , is ABS less “crazy”. Can be finished with acetone to give a shiny surface.

PET-G (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol-modified)

Combines the properties from PLA and ABS and is known for its excellent strength and rigidity, combined with the possibility of transparent products, good impact resistance and surface hardness. The material is about as strong as ABS and chopped more flexibly, but less demanding to use. The material also has far less odor and impact on the indoor climate than e.g. ABS .

ASA (Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate)

High quality thermoplastic with superior UV resistance. The mechanical properties of the material can be compared with ABS .
The high strength and UV resistance make this material well suited for outdoor applications such as car parts, garden objects and sports equipment.

HIPS (High Impact polystyrene)

Known in the 3D printer market as a support material ABS , but it is also a material with good mechanical properties. HIPS has high impact resistance and can withstand up to 100 ° C. HIPS gives a matte surface and is well suited for parts that are to be finished, with for example varnish or paint.

PC (polycarbonate / polycarbonate)

Has superior impact resistance and breaking strength. This makes it very suitable for utensils and mechanical parts. In many cases, this is the strongest material you can use with a filament-based 3D printer. In addition, the material is resistant to temperatures above 100 ° C.

TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer)

Flexible material that feels and works much like soft rubber. It can be used to make flexible and flexible parts such as plugs, belts, springs, telephone covers etc. There are many types of TPE, but the most common for 3D printing is thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU).

Nylon

Nylon withstands heavy mechanical stresses and is well suited for tools, functional prototypes and finished products. Nylon has long been used in industrial production and is known for durability, good strength-to-weight ratio, flexibility, low friction and good corrosion resistance.

PP (Polypropylene)

Powerful material suitable for functional prototypes and finished products. The material has a low bulk density and can be used to make lightweight parts with a high strength-to-weight ratio. The material also has good chemical, electrical and thermal resistance. It can be used as electrical insulation and can withstand a variety of acids and bases, including industrial cleaners. The material is semi-flexible, transparent, has low friction and gives smooth surfaces. Suitable for everything from electrical components to movable joints and hinges.
