PLA Flax : Flax fibre reinforced

Nanovia PLA Flax is biosourced, biodegradable, and certified without Estrogenic endocrine disruptors. The flax fibers allow for better mechanical properties and easier printing, the fibers’ tint can also be modified by printing on different temperatures.

Combining PLA’s ease of printing with flax fibers mechanical properties, Nanovia PLA Flax will allow you to create mechanical 3D prints with ease.

This biosourced composite 3D filament, certified endocrine disruptor free, can be browned by varying the printing temperature up to 260°C.

Nanovia’s PLA Flax’s fibers are harvested and transformed in France, specially selected for additive manufactoring. The organic look of this filament makes it ideal for decorative objects and toys.

Avantages:

  • Easy to print
  • Biocourced and biodegradable
  • Certified endocrine disruptor free

Application recommendations

Storage

  • Store Nanovia PLA Flax in a dry and dark location, if possible with a desiccant.
  • In order to guarantee good printing conditions dehydrate Nanovia PLA Flax at 50°c for 4 hours or longer, when the spools has been exposed to moisture for an extended period.

Printing

  • Extrusion temperature : between 200 and 240°C
  • Heated bed temperature : between 20 and 50°C

Post treatment

  • For an outdoor usage, we recommend that you paint your print or submit them to an anti UV treatment, such as our Nanovia smoothing solution.

Health and safety

Printing

  • We recommend printing Nanovia PLA Flax in a room equipped with air extraction or by using appropriate breathing equipment.

Post treatment

  • We recommend wearing standard safety equipment during the post treatment of your prints made with Nanovia PLA Flax.

Endocrine disruptor test:

1 Method OEDT – SERPBIO Laboratory. Sample : NANOVIA 3D filament PLA Flax.

Study: Measuring the activity of the human estrogenic receptors expressed in S. cerevisiae (SW303.1B)

Every measurement is reproduced 3 times independently with the different contents of the tested sample

Results: The obtained data shows that the tested product does not influence the measured activity

Note on the ratio of circulating plasmic œstradiol: With menopaused women / with men: * [4×10-11M – 2×10-10M] with pre menopaused women (excluding ovulation): [1×10-10M – 5×10-10M] / with women (ovulation): [2×10 -9m] * a value is considered critical when it exceeds [2×10-11M].

CONCLUSION: The tested material can be considered absent of endocrine disruptors.

Packaging

Spools are packed in individual boxes, sous-vide with desiccant. Spools are equipped with both a material traciblity and a production series number.
