Description

Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH, PVA, or PVAl) is a water-soluble synthetic polymer, not to be confused with polyvinyl acetate also referred to as PVA. It is used in papermaking, textiles, and a variety of coatings. It is white (colourless) and odorless. It is sometimes supplied as beads or as solutions in water. Sources: Wikipedia.

About Ultimaker PVA

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.

Reasons to 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

Dual extrusion info

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.  

Ultimaker PVA and Ultimaker 3

As a water soluble support material, Ultimaker PVA empowers engineers and designers to create highly detailed surfaces and complex moving mechanical parts in just one run. Coupled with the right build materials and our proven material profiles in Cura for Ultimaker 3, our PVA opens up a whole new world of opportunities for intricate designs and versatile applications.

About NFC tag

The Ultimaker NFC (Near Field Communication) filaments are designed to be used with the Ultimaker 3, Ultimaker 3 Extended, and Ultimaker S5 3D printers. They are equipped with NFC scanners that ensure correct settings depending on material and print heads.

Compatibility

The NFC filaments can also be used with other 3D printers that utilize 2.85 mm diameter filaments, but without the NFC functions. Also make sure the 3D printer is compatible with the particular filament material type.
