Kynar PVDF MAX 3D Printing Filament



FluorX™ PVDF MAX 3D Filament

Our MAX PVDF [Polyvinylidene fluoride] was created for printing large parts with very low warp.  This polymer is pure PVDF and 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. 

Product attributes include:

  • FluorX™ PVDF MAX is made using Arkema Kynar® PVDF
  • Is ideal for printing large parts 
  • 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)
  • 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, 2.85mm (+/- 0.05mm)

Recommended Print Conditions:

  • Extruder Temp: 245-265°C  [up to 280°C on some printers]
  • Bed Temp: 90 - 110°C
  • Bed Prep: Acrylic tape (packaging tape), hairspray on clean glass
  • Print Speeds:  25-40mm/s is a typical starting point until you become familiar with the product
  • Other:  No cooling fan for speeds below 40mm/s, add 20-40% cooling fan above 40mm/s.  
  • Safety note:  This polymer starts to degrade at temps above 290°C.  Please keep your extruder temperature below this point to avoid degradation, off-gassing, and mechanical property loss.
