Our metal filaments gives excellent and uncommon aesthetic results whilst maintaining the ease of use of a regular PLA filament. Make your prints stand out! Our metal filament consists of 70% natural PLA and 30% aluminium powder which gives it the excellent characteristics of PLA (stable and low melting point, low shrinkage, rigidity and non-toxic) whilst adding a metallic look and feel. Our metal filament prints just like a normal PLA filament so you do not need to modify your printer in any way. When using our filament, we recommend that you use a nozzle temperature of 190-210℃ and a bed temperature of 70℃. Do not worry if your printer does not have a heated bed as our filament will still adhere to a cold bed but you may need to prime the bed first. This can be done by laying masking tape (or painters tape) on the bed, or alternatively, you can cover the bed in a thin layer of glue (paper glue-stick) or hairspray. This filament can also be polished and treated to give it a metallic shine.
This filament is sold as a 500g spool and comes packaged in vacuum formed plastic and a cardboard box. To avoid the filament absorbing moisture in the air before it gets to you there are some silicon crystals inside too. Please note that this filament does not conduct electricity.
