BendLay TOUGH - Clear Transparent - 3.00mm
BendLay is a revolutionary new heavy duty, German engineered 3D printer filament. It is resilient, tough and yet bendable. This very tough material (modified Butadiene) has a shore hardness of D65, which enables this filament to be bent up to 175% without causing white stress marks after bending. (For even more flexibility, see BendLay FLEX)
BendLay is translucent. It's transparency is being described as “plexiglass-like” as apparently BendLay will let 91% of visible light pass through its fiber. BendLay is as clear as Polycarbonate filament. This unique feature makes BendLay extremely suitable for printing light-transmitting objects.
BendLay (modified Butadiene) is safe for household and food products. It can be used for clear bottles, containers, etc.
BendLay has a high inter-layer adhesion, making it a really wonderful and easy-to-print filament.
BendLay’s thermal stability is comparable with that of PLA (65° – 70°C). BendLay’s water absorption is only 30% of that of ABS, meaning that there will be less evaporation and therefore prints are less likely to warp.
BendLay sticks well to ABS and PLA, which makes this 3D printer filament also suitable for multi-material prints. Keep in mind that BendLay gets crumbly from Acetone. So it is recommended not to smooth your ABS/BendLay multi-material prints afterwards with Acetone.
BendLay’s unique set of characteristics with respect to its high impact resistance, light emission, flexibility and food-grade enables a whole new field of application for FFF/FDM desktop 3D printers.
Bendlay’s bend-ability and high impact strength also allows for example, material used for hinges and other mechanical parts to be built into other, firmer and inflexible parts. The combination of being bendable and tough make BendLay also very suitable for creating things like belts, straps, etc. BendLay will come in handy for any object requiring bend-ability, resilience, or light emission.
BendLay is soluble in brake cleaner.
*All BendLay filaments are made in Germany.
*Filaments.ca is an authorized Canadian BendLay distributor.
*All orders are stocked and shipped from Toronto, Canada.
STORAGE: One large resealable bag with slider + a desiccant pack are included with every spool. The bag and extra desiccant are a great way to safely store your filament spool when not in use. It keeps your filament bone dry & free from any dust or dirt particles, so it's always ready for your next print.
