The Filaments.ca PURGE filament is our house brand unique patent pending cleaning filament designed to maintain the extruder head of your 3D printer clean and lubricated! Made right here in Canada!
PURGE Filament cleans and lubricates your extruder head and nozzle, removing hardened contaminants and built up residue.
We strongly recommend using PURGE filament on a regular preventative maintenance schedule to significantly extend the life of your extruder and keep it working trouble free.
Between material changes. (PURGE filament extrudes over a very wide temperature range and can be used between any material changes, regardless of their melting temperatures.)
Between color changes. (Perfect for ensuring no previously used colors bleed into your current print. PURGE filament is colorless.)
When printer is not being used. By shutting down your 3D printer and starting up your machine with a small amount of the PURGE filament loaded in the extruder, you will significantly extend the life of your extruder, nozzle and print head assembly.
For best results, please follow the directions included on the packaging.
Compatible with all filament printers.
PURGE Filament comes packaged as a coil (not on a spool) approximately 3 meters long inside a resealable bag. In most cases this will be enough for at least 10 to 20 uses or even more depending on your maintenance procedures.
PURGE RING FILE:
Step 4 of the purge filament instructions on the back of your packaging recommends printing a "ring" to further clean your nozzle. Click the link below to download our recommended "ring" printing file. You will find 4 different file formats (.gcode | .SDLPRT | .x_t | .x3g) to ensure compatibility with all printers.

Filament très utile pour conserver la buse propre. Je l’utilise à chaque changement de filament et je n’ai jamais de blocage de la buse. Je recommande.
Used this 3 times now to clean out the nozzle. It did take a few times to get it all out. Saves replacing the nozzel with a new one.
Does a nice job. Great for purging previous colours from your nozzle.
I find this filament a good place to start when cleaning out a nozzle it seems to work well.
Its a must. Really works!
I had to run about 2 feet in total to clean my nozzle. I change filaments very often and it helped alot with major color changes!
Worked great when swapping from ASA to PLA, without having to cold pull. I definitely suggest it if you're using a Nozzle X.
Before using this i have needed to change nozzles often enough. This stuff works so good and has saved me. Do not regret ever getting this.
It does the job. I cleaned 3 nozzles with 12-inches of purge filament that it became a regular string. Printing a ring as suggested did not stick on the heated bed. I just extruded the filament at a height and i let it dropping down to the bed.
I was having clog issues when switching from ABS to PLA. Cold pulls, high temperatures and cleaning with a needle weren't working so I was switching nozzles each time I switched filaments. I tried the cleaning filament, not really expecting a big improvement but it does work as advertised.
Great product. Don't know what it is made of but it gives my print head the enema it needs from time to time. On my Prusa I just load and unload the filament. Seems to do the job just doing that.
Did a good job cleaning my extruder, will make sure to have this stocked.
The purging filament removed quite a bit of gunk that I had no idea was stuck in the throat tube. Its worth the money I spent and I'll use it as regular maintenance of my printer.
À vrai dire, j'ai acheté le cleaning filament pour combler un manque pour avoir la commande gratuite. Avoir testé avant, j'aurai commandé en plus grande quantité. Avant de tout démonter un extrudeur bouché, je l'utilise et ça règle à 75% du temps. Maintenant j'en passe de temps en temps pour prévenir les blocages.
Worth the money
Fait une belle job
Best PLA i've used so far. Love it. Used Light Grey to make a 1/18th model of an X-wing fighter. Will post pics when completed.
C'est vraiment bien, j'ai bien aimé.
I just switched to using PETG for printer parts (never used it before) and I was having serious issues with laying down the plastic and eventually a full clog.
Ran this filament with the nozzle off to remove the clog than ran it with the nozzle. It cleaned everything and removed all the PLA leftovers that the PETG was getting stuck too and now the PETG runs super smoothly at 30c lower, and only using a few inches of purging filament. I really love this stuff!
Cleans great, unloads great. Perfect for preparing you nozzle for a low-temperature filament after printing a high-temperature filament.
I picked up a package of this to give it a try as I find my hot end clogs fairly easily. This product works exactly as advertised! very rarely to have to remove my hot end for manual unclogging. Its super impressive to see the carbon and over debris extruding within the cleaning filament as you run it through your hotend.
I have even gotten in the habit of leaving some in the hotend when I know I will not be using my printer for more than a few days.
This will be a mainstay in my printer tool box from now on!
Thanks Filaments.ca team for recommending it while we were chatting in the store. Excellent customer service and very friendly staff!
Seems to work as expected, my nozzle wasn't heavily clogged so I don't know how effective it is, but it's great for purging before or after messy plastics like TPU. Running a bit through every once in a while seems to keep the extruder running smoothly. My only complaint is the price/quantity; you can only buy this in 3m packs for $10 at the time of writing. It would be nice to see maybe a 100g pack with bulk discount, etc. (especially if you use it as often and feed through as much as the back of the pack recommends)
If you like layer porn that's is what you need. good instruction is provide in english ,easy to used and nice result for your next print thanks filaments.ca your product alway top notch.
