PVDF 3D Printing Filament

Firewire® PVDF 3D Printing Filament


Firewire® PVDF [Polyvinylidene fluoride] 3D printing filament.  This high-performance polymer offers exceptional thermal and chemical resistance for industrial-grade printing.  Rated for uses up to 150°C - this filament can be used in demanding applications and under the most extreme conditions.  PVDF is resistant to most chemicals and solvents making it a great fit for applications that will be exposed to harsh environments.  Made using Arkema Kynar® PVDF.


Product attributes include:

  • High continuous use temperature - up to 150°C
  • Excellent resistance to a broad range of chemicals, such as automotive fluids (oil, gas, lubricants), fully halogenated hydrocarbons, alcohols, acids and bases
  • Non-hygroscopic - does not absorb moisture - no drying of filament or special storage is needed
  • Inherently UV-resistant (H-F bonds are very stable in exterior applications)
  • Very good abrasion resistance - similar to Nylon and UHMW-PE for high-wear applications
  • Low smoke and flame characteristics (base resin is rated V-0)
  • Long-term hydrolytic stability 
  • Resistant to nuclear radiation

Filament Specifications:

  • 1.75mm (+/- 0.05mm)

Recommended Print Conditions:

  • Extruder Temp: 245-265°C
  • Bed Temp: 90 - 110°C
  • Bed Prep: PVA-based adhesive, Hairspray, Lightly sanded FR4 or Perf board.
  • Other:  No or light cooling fan; print speeds of 40-60mm/s as a good starting point 
  • Safety note:  This polymer starts to degrade at temps above 290°C.  Please keep your extruder temperature below this point to aviod degredation, offgassing, and mechanical property loss.
