SKU: BCNPVA Categories: , Tags: ,

Hydrosoluble | Support Material | Easy
PVA (Polyvinyl alcohol) is a water-soluble thermoplastic, widely adopted as a support material for FFF 3D printers. Optimized for the FFF manufacturing process, our PVA is compatible with most of BCN3D filaments and can be easily printed to create the support and then dissolved with ordinary water.
PVA supports allow to achieve better surface quality, to orientate the part to get better mechanical properties and even to print multi-component models and mechanisms.

Print complex parts – Exceptional surface quality in-contact with the support and easy removal of the support in difficult-to-reach geometries.

Print large overhangs – Our PVA has been specifically formulated for working as a support material for PLA, PA, TPU and PET-G so now you are able to print mechanical parts with support structures.

Orient parts to get better properties – When printing with PVA, you are able to orient your model in any possible way to customize its strength or your aesthetic requirements.



  • Exceptional adhesion with PLA
  • Also great in combination with PET-G, TPU and Nylon
  • Water-soluble supports for partially enclosed cavities and complex geometries
  • Sacrificial moulds


  • Improved thermal stability to avoid jamming and degradation issues
  • Dissolves easily with ordinary water
  • Compatible with most 3D printing filaments
  • Better printability
  • Moisture sensitive
  • Biodegradable

Bed adhesion:

To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo.



Store it in an airtight container with desiccant.

Dry filament before printing. Place it in an oven or in a dehydrator at 50ºC for 6 to 8 hours

Clean the hotend after you’ve used PVA, before starting printing with other materials.
