eSUN Launched Next Gen of Water-soluable Material

2018-05-08


 

For FDM print makers, when printing complex models, they often use many supporting materials to assist in printing. However, in this process, some support materials are difficult to remove, which is too time-consuming. Sometimes, after the process of removing, the degree of damage may caused. Therefore, how to quickly and effectively remove these support materials is a great breakthrough to create.

 

Aimed at the problem appeared in removing complex model supports, eSUN has launched a water-soluble support material for high-quality printing use, which named as ‘PVA material’,  this type of material is specially designed for printing parts with extremely complex shapes. It provides solid and reliable support. And when you put the printed product into the water tank after being molded, it can be completely dissolved in normal temperature water within a few hours.

eSoluble support materials, as the name implies, it can be dissolved in water. So the redundant parts can be rapidly dissociating in the model by the process of dissolving, which will increase the manufacturing speed to a certain extent.

 

In 2018, eSUN has launched so many new 3D printing products. Among them, through the further innovations on PVA materials, eSUN has developed and launched an upgraded water-soluble support material which named as eSoluble.

 

 

Compared with PVA materials, eSoluble's attributes are better and the print model is more easier for shaping. It has the following four advantages:

 

  • Dissolving speed is 2 times of PVA.

  • Less absorption of moisture and stable printing performance.

  • Suitable for multiple materials, work well with PLA/PLA+、ABS/ABS+、Nylon, etc.

  •  Environment-friendly material.

 

This material can contribute to expand the 3D printing capabilities. At the same time, significantly reducing prototype production costs, and shortening the production time as well. After the entire printing is completed, it can be easily removed under normal room temperature, and it can be completely dissolved in water without the help of any chemical solvent. What’more, there is no waste-material left on the printing works. 

 

 

As for the water-solubility rate, eSoluble is more than twice faster as PVA. eSUN has made a experimental comparison on water solubility between eSoluble and PVA. The details showed as below:

 

 

Precautions

 

eSoluble can work with ABS/ABS+. The distance between eSoluble and ABS/ABS+ need to be 0. Recommend not to print raft.

Store the opened filament well or put filament in a self-sealing bag with desiccant, in case of being wet.

 

 

Applications

 

eSoluble can work with ABS/ABS+. The distance between eSoluble and ABS/ABS+ need to be 0. Recommend not to print raft.

Store the opened filament well or put filament in a self-sealing bag with desiccant, in case of being wet.

 

Application

 

Facilitate 3D printing manufacturing as a water-soluble supporting material.

 

 

A successful 3D printing requires careful design and manufacturing. Esun’s eSoluble as a water-soluble support material for printing complex models, not only can contribute to the environment, but also can improve the 3D printing capabilities. It is really a good choice for 3D printing water-soluble support materials.
