- Printing Parameters
AquaSys® 180 is the world€™s only water-soluble 3D printing support material that€™s compatible with Polyetheretherketone (PEEK), Polyetherketoneketone (PEKK), Polyetherimide (PEI), and polyphenylsulfone (PPSU).
It€™s stable at chamber temperatures up to 180ºC. It provides complete design freedom. And it allows the additive manufacturing industry to move on to its next frontier: printing complex end-use parts, using high-strength thermoplastics.
- Weight: 2.3kg
- Dimensions: 13 × 12 × 4cm
- Diameter: 1.75mm
- Volume: 500g
- Extruder temperature: 230-300ºC (240-260ºC recommended)
- Build plate temperature: 60-180ºC
- Chamber temperature: Up to 180ºC
AquaSys® 180 is engineered for enhanced adhesion and high thermal stability. Together, these properties allow it to bond effectively to a wide range of hydrophobic and hydrophilic materials. And while it does adhere to most commonly used 3D printing materials, it€™s recommended primarily for use with PEEK, PEKK, PEI, and PPSU.
AquaSys® 180 filament is designed for use in fused filament fabrication (FFF) printers.
Pathway temperature: Keep the filament below 80°C prior to extrusion. Material that sits idle at temperatures of 80°C or above for extended periods of time prior to extrusion will not extrude properly.
Nozzle temperature: 230 - 300°C
Build plate requirements: AquaSys filaments will adhere to a wide range of build plate materials. If poor adhesion is persistent, increase the temperature of the build plate, but not past the maximum build plate temperature of 180°C.
Adhesives: Glue is not necessary if you use a raft made out of AquaSys 180. Follow your printer model€™s material guidelines when printing a raft with another material.
FDM 3D printing material.
Pair AquaSys 180 with any of the following: PEEK, PEKK, PEI, and PPSU.
