Philament Model – just like Philament Gypsum and Essence – 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 in the Philament Model is medium, less brittle than Gypsum filament, as for its basic characteristics it is between Gypsum and Essence filaments. This filament contains white pigment also, so the printed objects are off-white, with a matte finish, and the details are well outlined, which is useful for modelers. The printed models can be painted much easily than those printed with standard PLA or ABS filaments. The object can be sanded – both dry and wet – , and it is easy to cut, thus most accurate models can be printed with Philament Model. UV-resistant filament. It is one of the most versatile Philament products.
Philament Gypsum – just like Philament Model and Essence – 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. Philament Gypsum has the highest mineral content, thus it is yellowish, looks like rock or gypsum. The printed objects can be shaped very easily: they can be cut with a sharp tool, sanded, and polished, thus facilitating the post-processing of the object. It is easy to paint also, even with water-based paint. Due to the high mineral content the suggested printing temperature is lower than in case of standard PLA: 185-210 0C.
This filament is used mainly in the electronics industry, where electrostatic charging of a printed object can cause problem. Objects printed with Philament ESD does not charge electrostatically due to the special additives. Philament ESD provides surface resistance at megaohm order of magnitude, but this highly depends on the size and shape of the printed object. For proper printing results, we recommend 210-125 ° C printing temperature, at least 0.4 mm nozzle, and printing speed no higher than 60 mm / sec.
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 Philament Glass Reinforced is very low. No need for any special nozzle. Recommended printing parameters: 215 0C nozzle, 60 0C bed.
This PLA-based filament offers enhanced possibilities for industrial applications. The thermal stability of objects printed with Philament Engineering is extremely high, they could bear up to 140 °C heat, without any heat treatment after printing. Philament 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, Philament Engineering can be used for metal replacement also. The surface of objects printed with Philament Engineering filament is matt.
Objects printed with Philament 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 Philament 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.
Philament 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.
Objects made from wood are nice and have a natural effect. That is why, we decided to produce a PLA filament that reflects these properties of wood. Different type and size of wood flour was added to the PLA. Philament Wood product can be used to print objects with wood-effect, while also remaining the mechanical properties of the plastic. The objects can be printed at similar temperatures and conditions as standard PLA filaments.
Philament Support is a PLA-based filament, developed for 3D printings which need support.
As opposed to the soluble support materials Philament Support is an easy to break-away filament, so the vast majority of the support material can be removed quickly. Any remaining support on the surface can be completely removed by sanding. The result is a clean printing surface, there is no or minimal need for post-processing.
Also suitable for printing the complexly structured supports. It is compatible with FDM filaments and works well with them.
Printing with Philament Support is simple, settings are similar to PLA’s: printing temperature 190-215 0C, bed temperature 60 0C.
