    Evolv3D™ OBC Polyethylene Copolymer 3D Printing Filament

    Evolv3D™ OBC (Olefin Block Copolymer) from Dow is an engineering-grade material based on a novel polyethylene copolymer.  OBC is the state-of-the-art in polyethylene 3D printing and eliminates many of the problems associated with printing polypropylene-based materials.  OBC is semi-crystalline and has excellent chemical resistance coupled with ease of printing and real-world functional properties.  We manufacture this filament at our factory in Grand Rapids, MI using premium Dow Evolv3D™ OBC resin and custom colorants specifically formulated for 3D printing.

    Low Density:  The reel contains 750g of filament, but based on the low density of OBC, this is the same amount of filament that would typically be on a 1kg reel of ABS.  This allows you to print light-weight and exceptionally durable parts for medical, drones, watercraft, automotive, or any application that would benefit from a light weight chemically resistant material.   

    Product Attributes Include:

    • Excellent Z-axis bonding
    • Very low density (0.9 g/cm3)
    • Outstanding chemical resistance 
    • No water pick-up - no drying needed
    • Ease of printing - low warp / curling
    • Flexibility and fatigue resistance allows for printing living hinges
    • Low odor - essentially none

    Temperature:

    Notes:

    170°C - 210°C
    • Bed temp:  60-100°C

    • Bed prep:  Packaging tape (PE or PP based) is an excellent low-cost option, Magigoo PP Bed Prep

    • Enclosed build chamber:  23-60°C.  Although not 100% necessary, an enclosed print chamber will help ensure more successful printing

    • Other:  Recommended to print with brim or raft until you become comfortable printing with OBC.

    • We also recommend the use of a cooling fan (20-50%).  Print speed is generally 30-50mm/s.
