Filament soluble in water, ideal for use as a support material.

Lay-PVA is a soluble filament ideal for use as carrier material water. It is an excellent support material for parts that need support structures for which one must have a 3D printer or double extruder head (it is very useful in parts they need cantilevers and bridges). After finishing the 3D part print simply type this in a bowl with cold or warm water for about two hours for this support material Lay-PVA is completely dissolved and no trace of him (Hot water will accelerate the process of Lay-PVA dissolution of, while cold water is entirely soluble).

Because it is a water soluble material is essential to keep this material in a dry environment. To this 250gr coils Lay-PVA come within a self-sealing bag to isolate the filament humidity. With the Lay-PVA you can make your 3D FFF / FDM technology unimaginable printer parts if it was not for the help of this revolutionary filament. This revolutionary material is designed to get a grip with materials such as PLA, ABS or Nylon. PVA is polyvinyl acetate or a polymer obtained by polymerization of vinyl acetate. Lay-PVA filament is developed and manufactured by the prestigious manufacturer of 3D printing Lay filaments; is a inventor of a famous filaments today widespread in the market as the Lay-Brick (Ceramic) and Lay-Wood. This PVA original formula is designed to be more resistant to heat distortion and have greater protection against thermal degradation inside the extruder. (One of the main problems of PVA filaments other formulas). Therefore it can be used with 3D printers warm bed and having a great adherence to it.

This PVA filament is a little rigid as opposed most low quality PVA filaments that are flexible making it difficult to print. This creation of Lay-filaments gets you printing with Lay-PVA be as easy to print as ABS or PLA. The Lay-PVA emits no toxic fumes and is colorless.

To print with Lay-PVA is not necessary to have warm bed. Because this is an ideal combination printing with PLA material. You can use the bed temperature settings print the same parameters as the PLA. 3DLac applying the base of the printer is recommended for better adhesion. Depending on the printing parameters used (diameter of the nozzle, print speed or layer height) is probable that the optimum temperature can vary for each print 3D printer.

Masterspool format

The 250 g. format of the Lay-PVA filament can sometimes cause problems during the printing process because it does not include a spool that helps the correct supply of material from the 3D printer.

To avoid this type of problem when printing this and other filaments that are sold in masterspool format you can use a variable spool holder. Thanks to the use of this device, all kinds of tangles and overlaps derived from the absence of a spool are largely avoided.
