PLA based filament with X-ray shielding properties.

Nanovia is a renowned French manufacturer of filaments and products for 3D printing specialised in offering technical products.

PLA XRS is a PLA-based filament that enables 3D printing of X-ray shielded parts.

PLA is a biodegradable polymer. This material is one of the most widely used in 3D printing thanks to its properties and ease of printing:

  • It does not require a hot bed.
  • It has hardly any warping effect.

As it has a PLA base, PLA XRS Nanovia maintains many of the properties of this material, such as ease of printing. Thus, this filament can be printed on almost any FDM 3D printer on the market.

Undoubtedly, the most representative property of this filament is its X-ray shielding effect. PLA XRS enables the 3D printing of radio-opaque parts without the use of lead or any other toxic material.

This shielding effect varies depending on the wall thickness of the printed parts and the configuration of the 3D printer.

This material is not suitable for use in medical or dental implants.

Impact strength (KJ/m2) 2
Elongation at break (%) 3.5
Tensile modulus (MPa) 3500
Flexural modulus (MPa) 8800

As it is a PLA-based material, it does not require the use of a hot bed. In case it is available, it is recommended to use it at 40 - 60 ºC to improve the adherence to the printing base.

This filament is composed of hygroscopic material. Therefore, it is recommended to store the spool in a dry place and, if possible, with desiccant bags. If moisture is absorbed, we recommend using a device such as Print Dry Pro to dry the filament.

It is recommended to use standard safety equipment during post-processing of parts printed with Nanovia PLA XRS.

It should be noted that Nanovia XRS material is not intended for use in medical and dental implants.
