This combination of materials significantly increases the toughness of the filament while also ensuring stellar layer adhesion. This material will print successfully on both heated and non-heated print beds. However, if printed on a non-heated platform, using blue painter's/masking tape is instructed. PLAN is perfect for any protoype or production needs, as this filament is not only tough but pretty too! PLAN comes in an impressive array of colors you won't be able to refuse.
|Diameter Tolerance||± 0.05 mm|
|Glass Transition Temperature||55C|
|Print Speed||40 - 100 mm/s|
|Heated bed||(if you have one, not strictly necessary): 50-60C|
|Is this material abrasive and requiring a harden/plated nozzle?||The material is not abrasive, so it should work with a standard nozzle.|
|Is this filament "better" than standard PLA for temperature resistence?||The glass transition temperature is 55 C, which is not any higher than normal PLA. Therefore, temperature resistance is the same.|
Filkemp started in 1998 as a spin-off from the monofilaments department set up in the 70s by a subsidiary of the multinational Hoechst AG, in its day a world leader in the chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Currently Filkemp holds a global leading position in the production of PET, PA6, PA610, PA612 and various combinations of special polymers and copolymers, which act as a base in the production of technical polymers for the paper industry, conveyor belts or industrial filtration, abrasive brushes, recreational and commercial fishing, tennis racket strings, mooring lines, agriculture and, most recently, filaments for 3D printing. Competitiveness and excellence of products combined with the flexible service are key to the close and long-lasting relationship that Filkemp has developed with its clients throughout the world.
