3D Printer Filament Types

The working principle of a three-dimensional printer in FDM technology is quite simple. At the tip called the nozzle, plastic is melted and poured and the object is created layer by layer, just like building a building.
This plastic material that is melted and poured is called filament.

PETG (Polyethylene Terephtalate Glycol-Modified)

PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol-modified) is a thermoplastic material. It has uses such as soft drinks, food and beverage containers, kitchen utensils, cookie molds and synthetic fiber. PETG, which is an alternative to ABS and PLA, has a stronger and more flexible structure than ABS. It is easy to print like PLA and is fully recyclable.

The Most Preferred Are ABS And PLA.

PLA is generally preferred by the healthcare industry, food packaging, prototype parts, model making, educational institutions and home users.
PLA is obtained from products containing starch. It has features such as being environmentally friendly and harmless. Therefore, it is superior to ABS in terms of health.

Our filaments, which are completely domestically produced, have a diameter tolerance of +- 0.05% and a circularity of 0.01%.

Colorants that comply with Reoch and Rosh standards, food contact and health are used.

Usually mixed with PLA at 30-40%; There are also special materials such as wood, bark, bamboo, bronze, brass, copper, flexible PLA, temperature and light sensitive PLA, carbon fibers and antibacterial filaments.
With these materials, you can obtain unique models suitable for your design.

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

It is a high-strength, petroleum-based thermoplastic. A 3D printer that uses FDM technology and has a table heater can print ABS.
You can get problem-free and high-quality prints with 3D printers that have a completely closed casing.

High hardness, durability and impact resistance.
low flexibility
It can be dissolved with acetone and surface treated.

Thermostatic Elastomers (TPE)

These flexible filaments, also called thermostatic elastomers (TPE), can reach stresses that ABS and PLA cannot withstand. It is a difficult material to print. A specially designed extruder and nozzle for flexible filament is required.

Key Features of Flexible PLA Filament
They are quite flexible.
It can be used for toys, wearable items (shoes, slippers, bracelets, necklaces, etc.), phone cases and visual products. They have high durability.
