Water Soluble Support

PVA is water soluble

Benefits of AquaTek™ PVA:

  • Superior to traditional PVA filament
  • Easily soluble in warm water
  • Eco-friendly, biodegradable, and safe to dispose in house or office drains
  • Ideal support material for the most popular desktop printing materials

Compatible Materials:

  • AquaTek™ PVA is an industry favorite water soluble support material, it works excellent with all the following, and is very popular among makers and the desktop 3D printing community.
  • PLA, Nylon, PVB, TPU, more!
  • This includes all of our famous composite variants of these grades, such as carbon fiber, glass fiber, and ESD-safe.

Recommended Support Removal Techniques:

Break away excess support material that’s easily accessible. This reduces dissolution time (more support material = a longer time to dissolve).

Submerge the part in warm water. Hot tap water is typically 38-49°C, which is more than adequate for dissolving AquaTek™ PVA. Please be safe with hot water!

Agitating and stirring the water reduces dissolution time further, either with mechanical agitation or a sonic cleaning bath system. Re-heat or replace the warm water as it cools off for as long as you still see support material un-dissolved.

Residue is ecologically safe and can be disposed of down a home or office drain. Rinse thoroughly with fresh, warm water.
