Easy to print like PLA but with the thermal resistance of PETg or ABS
3D Printing Temperature 190-230 ° C
Print Bed Temperature None needed (or 50-70 ° C if applicable)
Annealing Temperature 110-120 ° C
Designed to offer greater heat resistance and high impact resistance in 3D printed parts, this material has been formulated with thermal and mechanical properties similar to ABS, offering an alternative to styrenic-based materials. This filament provides excellent 3D printing characteristics, such as precise details, good adhesion to plate construction, less warping or waviness and low odor.

Crystallization is a simple and effective method for improving thermal performance and further improving impact properties. The recommended annealing temperature is in the range of 110 ° C to 120 ° C. Annealing can be carried out in the oven or in another heat transfer medium, such as a hot water bath. Be sure to follow the appropriate safety procedures. Below is a general guideline for annealing printed printed parts:
1. Preheat the oven to an annealing temperature of (110 ° C-120 ° C).
2. Measure the temperature at various locations in the oven to ensure the absence of hot / cold spots. Uneven heating can lead to unexpected deformations and poor performance of the final part.
3. Place the printed piece in the oven and start the timer. The typical annealing time for parts with a wall thickness of 0.125 in (~ 3.18 mm) is approximately 20 minutes, but this time depends on the wall thickness.
4. For large parts, it is common to use support accessories (for example, aluminum jigs) during the annealing process.
5. Once removed from the oven, allow the part to cool to room temperature. Avoid handling the part, as the interior is likely to remain at high temperatures longer than the exterior.
6. If you are using a water bath to anneal, the piece may have to be at the temperature for a little longer time to crystallize (since the water bath cannot be between 110 ° C and 120 ° C).
7. Measure the dimensions of the initial part and after annealing, this way you can determine the contraction of the material.
Not recommended for direct contact with food.
Do not pour into any sewer, on the ground, or into rivers or the ocean. If the material is not contaminated, it is to dump in the recycling process of ordinary plastics, otherwise, send to an incinerator or other thermal destruction device. For used or contaminated material, the disposal options remain the same, although further evaluation is required. Disposal must respect and comply with local laws and regulations.
