Over the past six weeks, Fusion3’s material testing team has been diligently testing different filament formulations from a number of leading 3D printer filament manufacturers.
Here’s a rundown of the newly certified materials:
3DXTech 3DXStat ESD-PETG
3DXSTAT™ ESD PETG is an advanced ESD-Safe compound designed for use in critical applications that require electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection and a high level of cleanliness. 3DXTech starts with premium PETG resin and then compounded according to a proprietary formulation of carbon additives and process / dispersion modifiers – giving you a filament with excellent printing characteristics and consistent ESD properties.
Filaments.ca Nylon 12 (PA-12)
Nylon 12 has a very low moisture absorption which makes it a better material for printing. This material is extremely tough with superior tensile strength, elongation at break & impact strength. It also shows superior chemical resistance, superior UV resistance and heat resistance to over 130°C.
Filaments.ca Carbon Fiber PLA
This blend of Carbon Fiber (15%) and PLA (85%) provides for easy printing yet stronger and lighter-weight than standard PLA.
Fusion3 has tested many different manufacturer formulations of ABS. We tested and certified Hatchbox ABS at the request of a customer who had an existing relationship with Hatchbox. Fusion3 will work with every customer with a similar request and, pending certification, provide optimized configuration files (aka profiles) so our customers can print any certified material ‘out-of-the-box’.
Various Filaments.ca Generic Materials
For our Canadian customers, we have certified a variety of generic materials from Filaments.ca. Here’s the Filaments.ca formulations that we have recently certified: PLA, ABS, ASA, PETG.
