Easy 3D printing with attractive finish

Sulapac Flow 1.7 can be used as the raw-material in industrial scale fused deposition modelling (FDM) to create prototypes, functional parts, molds, jigs, decorations, in fact anything you can imagine where aesthetic finish is needed. It is a feasible option for large scale FDM as well, including furniture, vehicle parts and architectural components.

The materials to be replaced with Sulapac Flow 1.7 include PLA, ABS, and PP.

You can also produce filaments for 3D printing with Sulapac Flow.

Sustainable filament for 3D printing

Sulapac Flow 1.7 can be used to manufacture sustainable premium filament for 3D printing. With Flow 1.7 based filament you print both extremely robust and stable parts as well as light, highly detailed objects. When modelling with Flow 1.7 standard temperatures apply. In terms of nozzle sizes, choose one that is typically used with PLA filament. Flow rates of 100-110% are recommended.

A high quality filament made of Sulapac, ECO-FIL-A-GEHR SULAPAC® WOOD, for professional 3D printing is available from our trusted partner GEHR.
