- Stainless steel filaments are composed of very fine stainless steel powder contained in a PLA matrix. Filament contains 18% stainless steel and 82%PLA.
- Stainless steel printed parts have metallic surface finish.
- Prints made from stainless steel filaments are naturally heavier than standard plastic prints, providing a nice heft to printed objects.
- Parts are rigid and tough.
- A standard brass extruder will be quickly worn out when used with a stainless steel filament.
- Stainless steel filaments are much denser and heavier than plastic filaments, which presents problems when printing designs with lots of overhang.
- Stainless steel filaments have very poor bridging characteristics
- Stainless steel-fused PLA cannot be used for high temperature applications.
- Nozzle temperature: 210 ± 10 °C
- Bed temperature: 60 °C
- Printing speed: 45-50 mm/s
- ABS slurry is required for first layer adhesion.
