3D4MAKERS Facilan™ C8 is a new compostable 3D printing material designed to be a true manufacturing material for 3D printing. For many 3D printers C8 will print best at approximately 200°C with a bed temperature of 50°C and a speed of 50 mm/s. In designs with significant overhangs and bridges best results are obtained with fans at 80%. If your model has no overhangs then putting your fans at 0% improves interlayer bonding and in so doing the final mechanical strength of your part.
To get the best results while printing we advise you to keep the 3D printer in a room where there is hardly any draft and/or temperature fluctuations. Keep the 3D printer out of the sun.
Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) PEEK polymers are obtained by step-growth polymerization. PEEK is a semicrystalline thermoplastic with excellent mechanical and chemical resistance properties that are retained to high temperatures. PEEK is regarded as one of the highest performing engineering thermoplastics in the world. PEEK is used to fabricate items used in demanding applications in aerospace, automotive, oil and gas and medical industries.
Polyether Imide (PEI) Ultem is an amorphous, amber to transparent thermoplastics with a glass transition temperature (Tg) of 217 °C and performs in continuous use up to 170 °C. This inherently flame retardant plastic has UL94 VO and 5VA ratings. 3D4MAKERS has selected Ultem 1010 for their filament.
