Product Details

RS 3D Printer Filament PVA 2.85mm

PVA filament is quickly soluble in water, bonds well to plastics and prints easy. Therefore it is an excellent supporting material for dual extruder 3D printing. This polyvinyl alcohol-based filament is non toxic and biodegradable once dissolved in water. For applications other then supporting material PVA is also available in colours and has a high tensile strength

Excellent water solubility
Easy to print at low temperature
Good bonding to various plastics such as PLA and ABS
Biodegradable when dissolved in water
Limited smell

Recommended temperature for heated bed is ± 35-60゚C. Do not exceed a printing temperature of 225゚C, because then PVA crystallizes quickly and it will no longer flow and/or dissolve in water

Once you’ve purchased your filament it’s important to store it correctly to maintain its quality. Over time the plastic will absorb moisture from the air, creating small water bubbles in the filament. These bubbles when heated in the extruder nozzle will quickly reach boiling point, spoiling the print. The use of desiccant dehumidifiers to absorb the moisture is highly recommend


PVA can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers
