An unbeatable mattness combined with glitter effect gives Textura™ Flare a completely unique surface which makes it the market's most refined bioplastic, especially designed for architects and designers who want to get the maximum result from each print.
"Textura™ Flare is the perfect filament to print my designed jewelry"
Karin Andersson, jewelry designer
Textura™ Flare is a bioplastic reinforced with plant fiber and glitter effect which gives very aesthetic visual properties. It can be used much like PLA but with slightly lower temperatures. With this filament, the 3D prints are taken to a new visual level. It is trouble-free to print, very easy to post process and to color with many types of paint. The plant fiber filler, which creates the matte surface, also makes the layers barely visible without compromising on the detail of the print.
Textura ™ has been developed specifically for architects who place high demands on the appearance of the printouts. With a surface that rather brings to mind plaster rather than plastic, this material expands the boundaries of what a 3D printer can be used for.
"Awesome material, gets really neat! Many have thought that the black is carbon fiber, and are impressed when they are told that it is a bioplastic!"
Tino Karazeimbekis, Sweco Architects
Textura ™ is designed for makers who want very matte prints where the layers are hidden, which gives the print a feeling of not being 3D-printed and made of anything other than plastic. This bioplastic is the perfect alternative for anyone who wants to get the best out of their prints.
HT-PLA is an engineering grade biopolymer (PLA) which is annealable (in an oven) to increase its mechanical and heat resistance performance dramatically. HT-PLA is also easy to use with high precision, which makes it the perfect choice for all makers doing prints such as performance prototypes and hobby models, jigs and fixtures, where performance but also sustainability matters.
HT-PLA comes in a limited range of colors, since the focus is on the utility rather than aesthetics, but the “clear” variant is popular also for aesthetic prints due to its very high clarity.
X-PLA is a proprietary PLA-blend that is much less brittle than normal PLA which translates into hassle-free printing and higher impact resistance in the finished print. We have yet to receive a single customer with negative feedback on this product!
It also has a semi-matte surface finish, which makes the prints more aesthetically appealing than your normal glossy PLA prints. This makes the X-PLA popular among designers, architects and other meticulous makers, who also value what meets the eye.
PETG is one step up from HT-PLA in most mechanical aspects, especially when it comes to chemical resistance, strength and toughness. It also has excellent UV-resistance for outdoor use. PETG has pretty much taken over ABS former position as the runner up to PLA for more demanding prints.
PETG is also much easier to use than other mechanical materials like ABS or Nylons, because it has zero warping tendencies and not too high nozzle temperature requirements, which makes it printable in any desktop printer. A very good value-for-money filament.
The Easy-PLA is a standard PLA grade where focus lies on colors, effects and easiness-to-use. Special attention should be given to the glitz series, the Aurora green and the marble which all feature very appealing effects to make your prints look extraordinary.
