FilaPrint Metal Copper PLA because you know you deserve it!

This FilaPrint Metal PLA is an 80% Copper filled filament which is easy to print, sand & polish, you can create the most beautiful objects with real METAL characteristics, such as a 3 x higher weight than PLA, a METAL feel & touch and thermo-conductivity. Due to the high percentage of fillers FilaPrint Metal Copper PLA has virtually no shrinkage, plus a special lubricant increases the flow and prevents FilaPrint Copper to adhere to the nozzle. Finally all above positives combined with the correct hardness results in a filament that can be printed on almost every type of FDM 3d printer available on the market with retraction enabled on nozzles ≥0.35 mm.

Features:

  • Approx. 80% Copper content
  • PLA-based, 3 times heavier
  • Metal feel & “cold” touch
  • Excellent printability on both direct & Bowden style 3D printers
  • Processing additive added for easy & reliable printing
  • Quick & easy polishing and other post-processing
  • Possibility to print with retraction
  • Works on nozzles ≥0.35 mm
Additional Info:

FilaPrint Metal Copper PLA can be printed without a heated bed, but if you do have a heated bed the recommended temperature is ± 35-60˚C. Storage: Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly. FilaPrint Metal Copper PLA can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.

* Please consider the use of a hardened steel nozzle when printing with this filament as the Copper powder filler makes the filament abrasive and will result in fast wear of regular brass nozzles.
* Please have a look at the printing, post-processing & other PDF document below for further tips & tricks.

Storage: Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light, this will enhance the shelf life significantly.
