LUVOCOM 3F PAHT® is a high-temperature polyamide product line specially designed for extrusion-based 3D printing such as FFF. It has enhanced printability and a similar mechanical performance to a PA6 but exhibits lower water absorption and higher temperature resistance.
Within this product line, the new LUVOCOM 3F PAHT® KK 50056 BK FR is a flame-retardant material that offers outstanding properties. It has ceramic fillers to increase its thermal stability without causing any processing issues, from filament production to part printing. With its employed halogen free flame-retardant package, UL-94 V0 is achieved on printed parts at thicknesses ≥0.4mm. In regards to EN 45545 R22 and R23 HL 3 are achieved. An Ultimaker S5 coupled with a CC 0.6 print core was used as the printer. Printing profiles are available on the CURA Marketplace for the Ultimaker S5 and they will soon be available for the Ultimaker S3 as well. The material and filament also run on other systems.
Being an electrical insulator, this material is an ideal candidate for the E&E market and all other applications where flame retardancy is important. As is the case with all other LUVOCOM 3F products, no heated chamber is required during printing, and no warping is observed. It is compatible with HIPS and PVOH support materials.
