When you set out to 3D print something, it’s generally not a mindless activity — you have something that you want to produce, whether it’s a prototype, a necessary tool that you’ve designed, components, or perhaps it’s a number of parts you are producing to bring together as a whole.
3D printing is completely reliant on beginning with a good foundation. That means that first a solid concept and design must be dreamt up. The concept is usually laid out with great care, and actual 3D design even more so. The process can be time consuming, so as a maker, you are invested — and you deserve the best tools and materials to see your project through to the end with success.
While choice of materials may sometimes not be as firmly considered in the beginning, they should be, as this will be your end product. 3D printing material, in essence, has the ability to make or break your model, literally. And while, obviously, superior strength in material is something that manufacturers must offer, it should be available to all who are involved and putting in the time and effort to 3D print.
taulman 3D is aware of that, and has developed a new filament that is available to everyone for 3D printing on all levels. No matter what your project, you can be rewarded in 3D printing a quality model due the amount of product development and refinement not only taulman 3D, but also chemical companies and extrusion manufacturers, put into their latest product: Alloy 910.
Alloy 910 is a unique and pure polymer — and according to taulman, this is your new avenue for printing not just a variety of things with amazing new strength, but one-of-a-kind parts. taulman 3D considers their new alloy to be a ‘measurable advance,’ and it is meant, quite simply, to be one material that can meet as many requirements for high performance as possible, without any modifiers.
Boasting the highest strength of any co-polyester — at 8,100PSI — the new alloy allows you to print at temperatures of 245° C. With great potential for utilitarian and industrial uses, Alloy 910 is expected also to be of great avail in robotics of all sizes. Other important factors you’ll want to take note of:
- No particulates; no additives
- Impressive shrinkage factor at 0.0031 in/in, which taulman states rivals their t-glase product
- Great chemical resistance
- A working range of 95° C
- No carbon fiber, nano-tubes, or fillers of any kind
- Modulus PSI = 72,932
- Max Elongation at break = 31%
- Print Bed – Cold = BuildTak with coat of PVA; Hot = Glass heated to 45° C with coat of PVA
In supply now, and available for international shipments, taulman Alloy 910 is amber in color naturally, but is receptive to use of acid-based dyes for adding color. It is available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm, it can be used with any nozzle size and printed to temperatures of 245° C.
