aeForce™ PET-GF

aeForce™ PET-GF is specially developed for FDM 3D printing process, and its substrate materi- al is PET engineering plastic with low moisture absorption, high strength, creep resistance, excellent chemical resistance and high heat resistance. With good dimensional stability, no warpage and no shrinkage and no smell, no heating chamber are required during the printing process.

It can be used with aeSupport™ S-Multi Quick-Remove Support Material to solve the problem of poor molding effect of supporting surface of complex model.

Other sugggestions:

Although the moisture absorption of PET material is very low, it is very sensitive to moisture. Printing after absorbing moisture will result in ozzing, extruding with bubbles and rough surface appearance, thus reducing print quality. It is recommended that put the filament into a dry box (humidity below 15%) immediately after opening the aeForce™ PET-GF vacuum foil bag for printing. Please put the unused filament back into the original aluminum foil bag for sealed storage.

After the material is damp, there will be more printing ozzing, bubbles extruded and rough printing surface. Please dry the filament in an oven at 100-120℃ for 4-6h to restore the printing quality of aeForce™ PET-GF.

Phaetus hardened steel and above grade nozzles shall be selected, which can effectively improve the print quality. Besides, it is recommended that the thickness of the heating block should no less than 12mm.

After the printing, the printed part can be annealed to further improve the strength of aeForce™ PET-GF print part. Annealing conditions: place the printed part at 80-100℃ for 4-8 hours and cool to room temperature naturally.
