PVA – 1.75mm – Soluble Support – Kuraray MOWIFLEX
From Japanese Kuraray we have this high quality PVOH (polyvinyl alcohol) Support filament
Mowiflex™ is a water soluble thermoplastic material based on polyvinyl alcohol that enables printing of complex structures even those containing moving parts in one. The support structures are easily dissolved in cold water.
- Soluble in cold water, dissolves better than PVA
- No organic solvents needed
- Low moisture absorption
- More filament stiffness then PVA
- High melt flow
- Adhesion to PLA, PVB, PA, TPU
- Biodegradable, TUV certificated
Mowiflex™ should be printed between 190-210 °C, do not exceed a nozzle temperature of 220 °C and reduce nozzle temperature to <170 °C when temporarily idle. Don’t let the filament in the extruder when idle. Set the heated bed at about 25-70 °C.
Suggested printing speed: 20-50 mm/s.
Keep away from moisture and store in a sealed aluminum bag. Damp material can be dried at 60-80 °C for 6-8 hours in a circulating air dryer.
