Properties Characteristic Application Instruction

MELFIL™

  • Water Soluble Filament MELFIL™ For FDM 3D Printer made by PVOH manufacturer.
  • Developed the most suitable material and in-house filamentized. All made in Japan!
  • Superior water solubility and printability.
  • Wide use as support material, water soluble model and so on.., depends on your ideas!

Water solubility comparison data

Printability

It is not necessary to change support materials for various main material. MELFIL™ supports ABS as well as PLA.
* When print MELFIL™ as support material, please use a double head printer.

Printer setting
Main material Printing temperature(℃) Bed temperature (℃)
Main material MELFIL™
ABS 235 210 100
PLA 190~210 200 80
Nylon(PA) 250 200 100
PET-G 230 200 100

Compared to general main material, you can print more precisely and accurately without warps nor gaps.

Application

As support material

You definitely need a support material when printing a complicated model.
MELFIL™ encourages you to print complicated and hollow model at once without troublesome assembly process!

If you have MELFIL™, you never need assemblage even with complicated model. You can print everything at once.

MELFIL™ is easily removed by water, you don’t need deburring. Even holly model can be printed.

As water soluble model

MELFIL™ can be applied for various water soluble models.

Adhesive model

MELFIL™ can stick to other models with water.

Control solubility and buoyancy

MELFIL™ can be controlled buoyancy and solubility by printing density.

Instruction

The bed temperature shall be higher than 80℃.
(preferable 80-100℃)

The nozzle temp. of MELFIL™ should be 190-210℃.

After printing MELFIL™, the nozzle should be completely purged with ABS or PLA, otherwise the remained MELFIL™ will harden and stuck inside the nozzle.

MELFIL™ is water soluble filament, therefore it will be solved if it gets wet. Please be careful of handling MELFIL™.

When you don’t use MELFIL™ for a while, make sure to keep it into a damp-proofing Aluminum bag. We strongly recommend you to keep it into a desiccator.

>20 times weight of water to this material required for disposal (i.e. >20cc water to 1g MELFIL™) with a maximum of 2kg of MELFIL™ per day. When more MELFIL™ is to be used per day, professional organic effluent treatment will be required.
