BVOH BCN3D Filaments

Hidrosoluble / Support material / Wide compatibility

65,00

Overview

BVOH (Butenediol vinyl alcohol copolymer) is a water-soluble thermoplastic optimized for the FFF manufacturing process. Our BVOH extends the compatibility with most of BCN3D filaments and can be easily printed to create the support and then dissolved with ordinary water. In comparison with PVA, BVOH supports allow to achieve better surface quality, to orientate the part to get better mechanical properties and even to print multi-component models and mechanisms with a fastest dissolution and easier to remove.

Bed adhesion:

To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo.

Recommendations:

  • Store it in an airtight container with desiccant.
  • Dry filament before printing. Place it in a hot air dryer or vacuum oven at 60ºC for 4 to 16 hours.
  • Calibrate the printer to ensure a reliable adhesion between materials and a proper alignment of both printheads.
  • Clean the hotend after long prints or when switching material.
