In order to better simulate 3D printed projects and compare materials between each other, we’ve tested our composite FFF filaments in 3 different printing directions.
This mechanical data was obtained by a series of normalized tensile tests (ISO 527-2/1A) on a large amount of 3D printed test specimens in our factory at Louargat, France.
- Along the tension stress, to obtain the maximal resistance
- Successively at 45° and – 45°, close to 3D printing standards
- Perpendicular to the tension stress, to obtain the minimal resistance
A tensile tests consist of exerting an increasing force, or a constant deformation to a test specimen deforming it until it breaks.
The obtained mechanical data allows :
- Scaling parts to the amount of stress they need to resist
- See how the material behaves under stress, for instance its flexibility.
- Control the quality of production batches
- Compare materials between one another
The tensile tests were done by our material scientists over at the Plateau Technique ComposiTIC, in Lorient.
