Philament is a new Hungarian 3D printing filament manufacturer. Besides the standards, they offer industrial-grade materials like heat-resistant, antibacterial and non-conductive PLA filament.
PLA is a perfect for 3D printing enthusiasts. It is relatively easy to 3D print without a heated bed, biodegradable and highly versatile, as you can add other materials to it (find an overview of 32 types here).
But when it comes to industrial applications, PLA isn’t the first choice. Most professionals won’t use it because of the limits on the material’s physical performance. PLA is brittle, has a low melting temperature, low impact strength and is a poor thermal & electrical conductor.
Philament, a new Hungarian filament manufacturer, want to change that. “More and more industries are taking advantage of 3D printing. As the technology is widely used, the users are becoming more creative and want to explore new areas where 3D printing could support their work. Because of the limitations of the filaments they haven’t been able to do this,” says Dr. Zsolt Bodnar, CEO of Philament.
Besides the “usual suspects” (pure PLA and ABS, transparent, wood, etc.), Philament offer non-conductive, antibacterial, heat-resistant filament and also a brand for professional modelers. Here’s an excerpt of their filament range:
We haven’t tested any of these materials yet, but they sound promising. We’ll keep you posted.
