PVA filament is a cold water soluble 3D printer filament making it suitable as support material for complex ABS or PLA prints.
PVA is widely used in traditional industries, such as the textile industry and paper making industry. PVA is also used in a wide variety of coatings. PVA’s water solubility means that if your 3D printer has a dual extruder, you can print with ABS/PLA and PVA to build structures which are impossible to make without support material. When your print is done simply bathe it in cold/warm water and let the PVA dissolve resulting in a seemingly “impossible” creation made with a FFF/FDM desktop 3D printer. Models which were previously only printable with very expensive SLS printers become available to FFF/FDM 3D printers by making use of a soluble support material like PVA. The use of PVA means you can create ball bearings, ball and socket joints, and caged gear mechanisms. You can also make water soluble moulds.
Our AquaSolve™ PVA filament is a colourless and odourless high-quality filament and extrudes around 180°C to 205°C and is suitable for all desktop 3D printers. AquaSolve™ PVA printed parts dissolve completely in cold water. However, warm water will speed up the dissolving process. The fastest results can be obtained by dissolving PVA in a heated bath of water. Our AquaSolve™ does not contain any hazardous or chemical substances. In fact, all our AquaSolve™ filaments are RoHS certified and REACH compliant.
AquaSolve™ - PVA filament is a compound of PolyVinyl Alcohol (>75%), Aliphatic Polyol (<20%) and Calcium Distearate (<5%) , which comes in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameter and is conveniently wrapped on a spool containing ±300 grams of filament. Our spool-wrapped PVA filament is packaged in vacuum sealed plastic with a bag of silica gel inside.
