    More Details

    BVOH Butene-diol Vinyl Alcohol copolymer - is a unique material specially developed for FDM printers with great bonding and excellent support linking to various build materials such as ABS, ASA, PLA, PET, PA, PC and TPU.

    BVOH dissolves quickly in water (quicker than PVA) and is very easy to print. Which gives you the opportunity to print complex models in high quality. It is an excellent supporting material for dual extruder 3D printing.

    This Butene-diol Vinyl Alcohol Co-polymer based filament is non-toxic.

    Summary;

    • Good bonding to various build materials such as:

    ABS, ASA, PLA, PET, PA, PC,CPE, and TPU

    • Excellent water solubility. Higher solubility than PVA
    • Easy to print at low temperature
    • Helps you by printing specific, complex models
    • Light- and UV-sensitive
    • BVOH residue can be disposed with household waste

    Notes:
    Recommended temperature for heated bed is >60˚C.

    Printing Temperature: 220±10ºC.  Do not exceed a printing temperature of 230˚C for a prolonged period.

    BVOH works with most of the common adhesives.

    The speed at which the product dissolves in water is dependent on the volume of the printed object, the amount and the temperature of the water. Higher water temperature (up to 70˚C is no problem) will accelerate the dissolution. Keep in account that the temperature of the water is based on the properties of the material that you are printing with BVOH to avoid warping issues (example, if you print PLA with BVOH, keep the water around 40°C).

    BVOH can be used on most Dual printing desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.

    This material is not fully biodegradable but can be disposed of through the household drain with an excess of water.
