Helios Support PVA - Natural - 1.75mm
Helios Support is a “high heat” water-soluble PVA material which is engineered as support material for dual extrusion 3D printing in combination with engineering materials which require to be printed at higher temperatures and/or in heated build chambers.
Helios support can be printed at nozzle temperatures up to 250° C without the risk of cross linking and nozzle clogging and adheres extremely well to styrene based materials such as ABS, ASA, TitanX, Crystal Flex, and ApolloX, but also to Python Flex and Volcano PLA.
Helios Support dissolves slightly slower in water than normal PVA, but the dissolving process can be accelerated when using warm and circulating water.
- Can be printed at nozzle temperatures up to 250° C
- No risk of cross linking and nozzle clogging
- Improved filament flowing behaviour
- Can be printed in heated build chambers up to 60° C
- Excellent adherence to ABS, ASA, TitanX, ClearScent ABS, ApolloX, Crystal Flex, Python Flex and Volcano PLA
- Excellent solubility in warm circulated water
- Fully biodegradable when dissolved in water
STORAGE: One large resealable bag with slider + an extra 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.

General guidance for printing with PVA support materials:
Printing with PVA in general isn’t plug and play and does require a fair amount of 3D printing expertise as there isn’t a generic one-size-fits all setting for dual extrusion printing with PVA materials. The optimal PVA settings can even vary between the same models of 3D printers.
One of the most common challenges is to establish a good bond between the PVA support material and the primary building material. Below parameters are of utmost importance to establish a good adherence.
