ColorFabb_XT 3D printer filament is produced from Amphora 3D™ Polymer by Eastman Chemical Company. Amphora 3D™ Polymer will allow the user to produce 3D printed functional products in a safe way.
This filament features excellent properties: High strength and very high toughness, Odor Neutral processing, High Tg / improved temp. resistance, Styrene free formulation, FDA food contact compliance, BPA (Bisphenol A ) free formulation.
ColorFabb_XT has low shrink and odor, making it perfect for almost any type of printing in almost any type of printing environment. These filaments are extra tough and make a great addition to your filament inventory. Approx. length on spool is 247 meters.
Extreme High Flex Modulus (6.2 GPa) / twice as stiff as PLA
Moderate strain at break (8-10%), so no extreme brittle filament, but toughness
High Glass Temp. (Tg = 80°C)
Very high Melt strength
Very high Melt Viscosity
Good dimensional accuracy and stability
Low odor / Styrene Free solution
Easy processing on many platforms
Just think of all the great applications for a variety industries, that now will have a material that performs according to expectations. Functionality, stiffness, dimensional stability, heat resistant, what more can you ask? Applications in the RC Industry / Drones / Aerospace / Automotive / Prototyping and many more can now be developed on your desktop 3D Printer.
AMPHORA 3D POLYMER
ColorFabb_XT is produced with AMPHORA 3D Polymer from Eastman Chemical.
Amphora 3D Polymers is a specially developed co-polyester just for 3D Printing. It’s toughness and high melt-strength makes it the perfect material for producing fiber reinforced composites, providing the necessary viscosity for 3D printing, combined with a high toughness in the filament and end application
Excellent diameter tolerance
ColorFabb uses sophisticated and highly precise laser measuring systems to check the diameter of the filament in real time during the actual production process. It’s measured over 1000 times per second and this helps guarantee that each spool of filament is produced within tolerance. We can guarantee 0.05mm +/- for our 1.75mm diameter filament, which means you can be rest assured that your printer is extruding the exact amount of material called for.
Climate Controlled Warehouse
STACKER warehouses its filaments in a climate controlled room to protect them heat and moisture which can degrade the life and performance of some filaments.
ColorFabb filaments have been rigorously tested at both STACKER and colorFabb facilities on Stacker 3D printers, and this ensures the best results possible. The colorFabb test lab features a wide range of popular 3D printers, including several STACKER 3D printers. They are continuously testing on 3D printers to ensure the filament is performing in real world situations. If you’re not sure how to print with our materials on your 3D printer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
ColorFabb was founded as a brand of Helian Polymers, a sister company of Peter Holland which have been active in the master batch and additives for the plastics processing industry. Both companies eat sleep and dream about 3D printing, and our passion drives us to create the best user experience possible.
Suggested printing temperature:
240 to 265°C‡
Suggested print speed:
40 – 100 mm/s
Suggested heated bed temperature, use glue stick.
65 – 80°C
colorFabb_XT filament performs best on a heated build platform.
The use of cooling fans is not recommended with colorFabb_XT.
‡3D printers have lots of different types of hot-end which makes it extremely difficult to give universal temperature advice. We feel our temperature advice holds for most 3D printers, but should be considered as a starting point for you to find the temperatures that work in you setup. Don’t be afraid to go either higher or lower than our advised temperatures if you feel your set-up needs this. Please refer back to your printer’s operating manual for safety and temperature specifics.
