Flexi Light Transmitting Filament
Crystal Flex™ is a heavy duty, translucent and yet flexible filament. Crystal Flex™’s transparency is being described as “plexiglass-like” as apparently Crystal Flex™ will let 91% of visible light pass through its fibre. Crystal Flex™ is as clear as Polycarbonate filament. This unique feature makes Crystal Flex™ extremely suitable for printing light-transmitting objects.
Another great feature about Crystal Flex™ is its resilience and bendability. Crystal Flex™ is a very tough material and has a shore hardness of D65, which enables this filament to being bent up to 175% without causing white stress marks after bending.
Crystal Flex™ has a high interlayer adhesion, making it a really wonderful and easy-to-print filament. Crystal Flex™’s recommended printing temperature is between ~215° and ~240°C, with ~240°C as recommended temperature for best layer adhesion during printing at high speed. Crystal Flex™’s thermal stability is comparable with that of PLA (65° – 70°C).
Crystal Flex™’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. Crystal Flex™ sticks well to ABS and PLA, which makes this 3D printer filament also suitable for multi-material prints. However, do keep in mind that Crystal Flex™ gets crumbly from Acetone. So it is recommended not to smooth your ABS/Crystal Flex™ multi-material prints afterwards with Acetone.
Crystal Flex™ 3D printer filament comes spool-wrapped with approximately 500 grams of material. Spool-wrapped Crystal Flex™ filaments are vacuum sealed.
