PVA BCN3D Filaments

Hidrosoluble / Support material / Easy

Overview

PVA (Polyvinyl alcohol) is a water-soluble thermoplastic, widely adopted as a support material for FFF 3D printers. Optimized for the FFF manufacturing process, our PVA is compatible with most of BCN3D filaments and can be easily printed to create the support and then dissolved with ordinary water.

PVA 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.

Compatibility: All BCN3D Printers.

Applications

  • Exceptional adhesion with PLA
  • Also great in combination with PET-G, TPU and Nylon
  • Water-soluble supports for partially enclosed cavities and complex geometries
  • Sacrificial moulds

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 an oven or in a dehydrator at 50ºC for 6 to 8 hours.
  • Clean the hotend after you’ve used PVA, before starting printing with other materials.
