Designed for a seamless 3D printing experience, our PVA provides good adhesion to both PLA and Nylon.

Reasons to choose PVA

  • Good thermal stability resulting in better degradation resistance compared to other PVA filaments
  • Less moisture sensitive than other PVA filaments
  • Great adhesion to both PLA and Nylon
  • Safe dissolution in tap water (no harmful chemicals required)
  • Biodegradable with no hazardous by-products

Post Process

Dissolving PVA support

PVA allows to effortlessly create complex 3D prints by building water soluble support structures.

1. Submerge. Put your 3D print in cold or warm water depending on the build material.

2. Rinse. After PVA supports are dissolved, rinse the 3D print to remove any excess PVA solution.

3. Dry. Let the 3D print dry and apply additional post-processing to the build material if necessary.
