PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol) is a water soluble support material for multi-extrusion 3D printing. With a good thermal stability, Ultimaker PVA is ideal for printing complex models that require supports for large overhangs, deep internal cavities, and intricate geometries. Designed for a seamless 3D printing experience, our PVA provides good adhesion to both PLA and Nylon.
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.
Why choose Ultimaker 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
