PVA-M filament is our preferred, cold water soluble, supporting material for dual extruder 3D printing. The modification on the raw material results in a filament that is much more thermally stable than a regular PVA. It also bonds well to PLA, ABS and PET-G, which enlarges the application field significantly. This polyvinyl alcohol-based filament is non toxic and biodegradable once dissolved in water. Easy printing, much less failures and easy removability makes this the supporting material you should try.
Recommended temperature for heated bed is ≥60°C. Do not exceed a printing temperature of 225˚C for a prolongedperiod. PVA-M works with most of the common adhesives.The speed at which the product dissolves in water is dependent on the volume of the printed object, the amount andthe temperature of the water. Higher water temperature (up to 70˚C is no problem) will accelerate the dissolution.Keep in account that the temperature of the water is based on the properties of the material that you are printing withPVA-M to avoid warping issues. (example, if you print PLA with PVA-M, keep the water around 40°C).PVA-M can be used on most Dual printing desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.
(*)This material is not fully biodegradable but can be disposed of through the household drain with an excess of water.
