PLA – Poly Lactic Acid

PLA is an eco-friendly, biodegradable thermoplastic derived from cornstarch and sugarcane that has been the mainstay of consumer 3D printing, but is now seeing increased usage in industry for injection molding eco-friendly parts. It has a lower melting point than the other plastics translating into lower operating costs, but is eminently suited to prototyping due to it’s ease of use and ability to accurately reproduce detailed shapes. It is also ideal for education markets since it is made from organic material.

Advantages:
Good Surface quality
Easy to work with at high speed
ECO Friendly Suitable for home and office environment
Good for concept models that require aesthetic detail

m1

ABS – Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene

ABS is a petroleum based thermoplastic that is widely used in injection molded parts. It is a tough material that has been the mainstay material in parts intended for use in cars and toys for decades. VAGLER’s 3D printers with a heated bed are perfectly adapted to manufacture parts using ABS. With ductile failure and a higher melting point than PLA, it is a versatile thermoplastic.

Advantages:
Great mechanical properties
Great interlayer adhesion
Withstands temperature up till 90°c to 100°c
Great for strong prototypes and end use parts

m7

Flex

Flex is a highly flexible thermoplastic elastomer that enables production of highly flexible parts that mimic rubber or rubber-like properties for applications that demand high flexibility and high strength.

Advantages:
Extremely high tensile strength
Great flexibility ideal for parts requiring extreme flex properties
Great bed adhesion without heated platform

m2

Max

Max PLA was designed to overcome the shortcomings of regular PLA. Featuring increased impact strength of up to 9 times that of regular PLA and 20% better than ABS, Max PLA still offers the same easy printing experience that you get with regular PLA.

Advantages:
Great tensile strength
Ideal for strong prototypes and end use parts
Minimum warping and shrinkage
Great Mechanical properties

m3

Nylon

From gears to toothbrush bristles, Nylon is the go-to material for high strength, high durability parts. Nylon exhibits very high toughness and the highest inter-layer adhesion of all the materials.

Advantages:
Industrial grade impact and abrasion resistance
High strength to-weight-ratio
Excellent corrosion resistance
Highly durable
Ideal for strong mechanical properties in end use parts

m4

PETG – Polyethylene Terephthalate

PETG is a polyester resin that is best well known for use in making food and liquid containers, such as plastic soda bottles. With our PETG filament, you can manufacture parts with this same tough, clear plastic.

Advantages:
Excellent impact resistance
High Tensile strength
Excellent interlayer adhesion
Minimum warping and shrinkage
Excellent bed adhesion

Applications :
Parts required to have corrosive resistant capabilities
Parts required to have oils and Greece resistant capabilities

m6

HIPS – High Impact Polystyrene

HIPS provides a similar 3D printing experience to ABS, yet offers benefits of good resistance to warm water, it is lightweight and easy to recycle. It is shatterproof and an excellent electrical insulation.

Advantages:
Excellent matt finished
Ideal for architecture modelling
Minimum Warping and shrinkage
