Philament Antibacterial

Philament Antibacterial is a special filament which provides antimicrobial protection against a wide variety of microorganisms. Its antibacterial and fungicide properties are based on metal ions. In objects printed with Philament Antibacterial filament, the built-in metal ion complexes block the metabolic processes of bacteria and fungi by an enzymatic reaction, thus preventing their growth. A similar mechanism is present at disinfectants, various preservatives, wash-off and leave-on products.

Philament Antibacterial provides lifelong lasting antimicrobial protection against Gram positive (e.g. Enterococcus, Bacillus etc.) and Gram-negative (e.g. Salmonella, Legionella etc.) bacteria, and different fungi, yeasts and algae fungus. Its use is advantageous where the presence of these microorganisms is harmful, e.g. in hospitals, shops, households, beauty salons.  With Philament Antibacterial, objects exposed to microbial infection can be 3D printed.

The active metal ion substance is incorporated in the PLA polymer matrix, and it does not have any negative impact on PLA’s favorable mechanical and printing properties. Philament Antibacterial can be printed in wide range temperature: 195-215 0C, without changing antibacterial properties. Solubility of the active metal ions and their migration to the surface is very low, so the dissolution from 3D printed objects is minimal, providing long-lasting protection for the object.

The active antimicrobial substance has been extensively tested using internationally accepted methods:  ISO 22196, ASTM E2180 and JIS standards.

Philament PLA

Philament PLA products differ from most used filaments in that they are composite material, which means, that in addition to PLA they contain several ingredients: pigment, lubricant, filler, impact modifier. Modification of PLA resulted a “softer” filament with easy to print characteristic, even at lower temperature. The low shrinkage of Philament PLA results, that the printed object will not deform, accordingly, there is no need for heated bed.

Thanks to the strict quality control from the purchase of the raw material to the production, the smooth roundness and the exact diameter of the produced filaments result in excellent 3D printing quality. Philament products can be used with all common desktop 3D printers based on FDM / FFF technology.

Philament pigments

Used pigments reach the best thermal stability value according to DIN 54001, and also they achieve the best light resistance value according to DIN 53388.

Food safety compliance

Most of the raw materials and pigments comply with the regulation in EU (EC Resolution 98(1) and Commission Regulation 10/2011/EC). Philament products do not contain and during the production process we do not use any hazardous chemicals, thus minimizing the environmental impact and carbon foot print of our production. Philament materials are RoHS certified and REACH compliant.
