BCN3D Consumables Range

BCN3D have a wide range of materials to suit any need. The materials have been specifically designed to work will the BCN3D printers, resulting in good reliability and high quality prints.

PP

Food Safe and Chemical Resistant

PP is a thermoplastic that is resistant to chemicals and is safe to use with food. It is a flexible and durable material with a good resistant to wear and impacts.

Technical Datasheet

Uses:

  • Food packaging
  • Living hinges
  • Lightweight parts

Tough PLA

Impact Resistant and Versatile

Tough PLA is a versatile material that is easy to print and produces consistently good results. It has a good surface finish, is biodegradable, stiff and has a good impact resistance. It is a good alternative to ABS.

Technical Datasheet

Uses:

  • Manufacturing aids
  • End use parts

TPU

Flexible and Durable

TPU is a elastomer with good mechanical properties. The material is wear resistant, chemical resistant and is durable. It’s flexibility makes it ideal for creating seals, grips and parts requiring friction.

Technical Datasheet

Uses:

  • Seals
  • Soft touch items

PA

Wear and Temperature Resistance

PA (Polyamide) is an engineering plastic, characterised by its great resistance to impact forces and ability to work continuously at a temperature of up to 120 ºC for an extended period of time. A low coefficient of friction allows for short term use with moving parts.

Technical Datasheet

Uses:

  • Tool handles
  • Cam, rollers and snap fit joints

PVA

Water Soluble Support Structure

PVA is a water soluble support structure that is used to help support complex geometries. The material can be dissolved away to leave the final print, it is eco-friendly and can be disposed of in the sink.

Technical Datasheet

Uses:

  • Support Structures

ABS

Stiff and Impact Resistant

ABS is a good material to use in an industrial environment. It has an attractive matte finish, good stiffness, dimensional stability. It has good layer adhesion which allows for easy printing.

Technical Datasheet

Uses:

  • Parts under high mechanical stress
  • Strong prototypes

PET-G

Easy to Print with Good Mechanical Properties

PET-G has a good balance of strength and elongation at break. It is resistant to water and chemicals, therefore it’s often used for water tight containers. The material is easy to print and has better mechanical properties than PLA.

Technical Datasheet

Uses:

  • Parts in contact with salts, acids etc.
  • Waterproof applications
