Wooden plastic for 3D printing Spectrum Filaments
Wooden plastic WOOD Spectrum is based on pure PLA mixed with natural wood particles. This 3D plastic is designed specifically to create 100% organic and biodegradable models that look like wood. In addition to the visual aspects that mimic the appearance of wood, products made of this material have a structure resembling the structure of particleboard.
The material has a unique quality: it not only looks like wood, but also feels like real wood, thanks to the content of natural wood in the composition. You can varnish ready-made printed models and perform machining. Another distinctive feature is the specific smell of wood, which is released in the process of additive production using this material.
Because the product contains natural wood, each batch may be slightly different in color, as in nature. 3D printing from a natural tree.
Wood Spectrum filament characteristics
- Made of biodegradable raw materials.
- Allows for printing with the 0.4 mm printing nozzle.
- Natural wood content.
- Perfect side surface of prints.
- Very good thermal insulation properties.
- Appearance of wood after printing.
- Allows for grinding and varnishing.
- Typical smell and appearance of wooden chipboards.
Wooden 3D plastic application
- Manufacturing items which provide both good thermal insulation and very high moisture resistance.
- Educational projects.
- Interior design.
- Advertising materials.
- Decorative art.
A 0.5 kg filament is wound on a transparent spool, which contains information about the type of material, diameter, color and recommended printing temperature. Each coil is packed in a vacuum with a dehumidifier. All in the original Spectrum Filaments foil cardboard.
- Outer diameter - 200 mm.
- Width - 55 mm.
- Inner diameter - 52 mm.
- Weight of empty coil - ± 220 g.
Verify quality of 3D plastic thread
Spectrum Filaments is the only company in Poland and one of the few in the world that has a tool for testing purchased filaments. VERIFY YOUR SPOOL is the most accurate quality control system on the market, ensuring that Spectrum Filaments products meet his stringent requirements.
Filament for 3D printers is produced by free extrusion, which is one of the most difficult extrusion processing technologies, due to the particularly significant influence of process parameters on product dimensions and material homogenization. During the manufacturing process, each 1mm of Spectrum Filaments is continuously measured in 2 axes with an accuracy of ±0.8 µm, resulting in a quality end product. To prove this, Spectrum Filaments, as one of the few manufacturers in the world, has introduced the possibility of an online presentation, individually for each coil produced:
- diameter travel along the entire length of the coil;
- average diameter;
- standard deviation.
