Influence of Moisture on Filaments for FFF 3D Printing

As the use of Additive Manufacturing (AM) continues to grow in a variety of industries, there is an increased demand for thermoplastic filaments that meet certain high materials standards. In particular moisture levels, as water molecules in the filament may cause issues in both the printer and printed part.
BASF Forward AM has produced a white paper which provides an overview of the importance of moisture in thermoplastic filaments, specifically in Ultrafuse® PET CF15. Additionally, the paper documents the negative impact on aesthetics, the influence of moisture on dimensional accuracy and the decrease of mechanical properties. Learn more about the state-of-the-art solutions proposed to maintain a controlled (high) temperature and low moisture surrounding environment for the spools and respective filaments.
