POROLAY LAY-FELT is a new filament which has felt-like features, it contains stiff or soft felt-fibers. It comes from a new series of porous 3D printer filaments for building porous flexible objects.
Note: POROLAY filaments are designed for experimental use by experienced users.
This material is made from a rubber-elastomeric polymer and a PVA-component. That means that part of this filament is water soluble (PVA). Once you rinse this material in water, the PVA component dissolves and the rubber polymer remains as your stabil fibrous object. The felty feature of this material makes it ideal for printing filters, 3D membranes, semipermeable membranes, artificial paper and bendable felty fabrics. LAY-FELT is also very suitable for use in water treatment membranes, or in electro-cells.
Your object printed with LAY-FELT will feel strong and rigid (slightly bendable) but after rinsing the print with water the object becomes like oriented felt, bendable but not elastic. This makes it very suitable for printing bendable felty objects. For the best result we recommend to immerse the print in a basin of tap water for 1 to 4 days.
POROLAY LAY-FELT 3D filament comes in coils of 250 grams.
- Optimal for printing felted objects
- Close to no warping
- A heated bed is not necessary when printing with LAY-FELT
- Printed objects are hot-sealable after drying
- Printed objects can be filled not only with water, try to use emulsions of oil, glycerine, inks, salty solutions, or ionic liquids to make it conductive!
- All the components of LAY-FOMM are harmless and food safe.
*Filaments.ca is an authorized Canadian POROLAY 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.
