Like many 3D print filament material, PVDF can be difficult to adhere to the print bed surface. One approach to improving surface adhesion is to reduce the crystallinity of the monomer by the addition of non-fluoropolymer components. While this may lead to improved print bed adhesion, it may result in the loss of desirable material properties such as upper use temperature, chemical corrosion and inflammability. There must be a better approach.
Nile Polymers is pleased to introduce Fluorinar-B™ with Fluorosmooth™ for enhanced surface adhesion, no warping and made from 100% PVDF.
Stop wasting your time!
Do-overs stink in 3D printing. Now large parts can be made without warping or loss of print bed adhesion. The final print remains perfectly flat after completion and cooling. Keep in mind that the printed part must be fully cooled prior to removal from the glass bed. We’ve warned you! Fluorosmooth™ eliminates warping by creating a high strength bond with the glass build plate. Premature part removal may result in damage to the glass print bed surface. Extreme adhesion! Proceed with caution!
