Filament diameter: 1.75 +/- 0.10 mm

 

Base material: ABS Plastic

 

Filler material: Proprietary compounds of bismuth and tungsten

Density Range: 2.7 +/- 0.1 g/cc for bismuth, 4.0 +/- 0.2 g/cc for tungsten

Note that stated densities are for the filled filament material. Printed part densities may vary due to printer processing parameters, and should be confirmed by the user prior to use.

 • A heated bed should be used to prevent warping

 

 • The particles in the filament may start to wear down the brass nozzle after several hours of printing. The nozzle should be checked before each print and replaced if worn.

 

 • To improve adhesion to print bed, user may apply a small amount of acetone/ABS slurry.

 

 • To achieve maximum density, you may need to increase the flow rate 5 – 10%.

 

 • If oozing occurs, nozzle temperature may be too high.

 

*Please note that there is wide variability among different brands of 3D printers. These recommendations on printer parameters have proven successful in our laboratory, but may require adjustment based on your printer models. Don’t be afraid to experiment for optimum conditions!
