ApolloX is UV and weather resistant and by that ensuring great color stability – combined with high strength and heat resistant properties – which makes ApolloX a perfect engineering filament for outdoor and automotive applications.
With ApolloX we bring the unique thermoplastic properties of ASA to the scope of FDM 3D printing and because of its FDM-optimization it is perfectly suitable for large scale prints.
With its below displayed unique set of characteristics ApolloX is a true asset to our Formfutura product portfolio.
• UV & weather resistant
• Extremely high printing precision
• Excellent adhesion to heated glass plate, Kapton tape, PET tape and EasyPad™
• Perfect inter-layer adhesion
• Great thermal stability and filament flowing behavior
• FDA food and drink contact compliant
ApolloX has an excellent roundness and very tight diameter tolerances, which makes this filament a perfect match with all common desktop 3D printers. Printing with ApolloX™ 3D printer filament will go very smoothly with basically all FFF/FDM technology based desktop 3D printers, such as:
Filament Net Weight: 0.75Kg ± 2%
Spool Size (D x h): 200mm x 55mm
Spool Hub Diameter: 52 mm
Carton Box Size (L x W x H): 220mm x 220mm x 60 mm
Packaged weight 1.25 Kg
How to dissolve PVA
Prints using PVA as support material will require post-processing to remove the PVA. This can be achieved by dissolving the PVA in water, as described on this page, and takes several hours, leaving no trace afterwards.
