X1 USM is water soluble

Benefits of AquaTek™ X1 Advanced USM:

  • Readily soluble in warm water
  • Eco-friendly and safe to dispose in house or office drains
  • Ideal support material for the widest array of materials, including many which are infamous for being difficult to support!
  • Low moisture absorption while exposed to the air during printing, getting less tacky over time than similar support materials

Compatible Materials:

  • AquaTek™ X1 Advanced USM really is our most compatible support material, it works excellent with all the following and more:
  • PLA, ABS, ASA, PETG, Nylons, and flexible filaments like TPC, TPU, and COPE.
  • 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™ X1 Advanced USM. 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.

X1 Water Soluble Support Filament

Filament Specifications:

1.75mm and 2.85mm +/- 0.05mm in diameter

Recommended Print Settings:

  • Extruder: 245-265°C
  • Bed Temp: 60-90°C
  • Bed Prep: Magigoo Bed Prep Adhesives, Nano Polymer Adhesive, or Polyimide Tape gives us the best results.
  • Heated Chamber: Not required, but often helpful. Enclosure temp should not exceed 120°C for X1 USM
  • Other: AquaTek™ Advanced X1 Advanced USM will absorb moisture from ambient humidity, therefore best practice is to store filament in a sealed container while not in use.
  • Drying Instructions: 65°C for 2-4 hours
