Nanovia Plastimperm is an aqueous formulation designed to make 3D FDM printed thermoplastics impermeable from water, oils, and certain solvents.

Applicable on hydro sensitive materials such as poyamides and PLA, Nanovia Plastimperm will protect your 3D prints from humidity and petroleum products such as white spirit, limoneme, ethyl acetate, acetone…

Adapted for composite materials, ceramics, and thermosetting polymers such as epoxy resins, polyurethane, and polyesters.

Nanovia Plastimperm is non filmogenic and doesn’t change the material’s colour or mechanical properties when dried.

Treated products with Nanovia Plastimperm can no longer be painted, varnished or glued.

Avantages

  • Excellent hydrofuge and oleofuge properties
  • Water based solution
  • Anti stain and stick
  • Long lasting (depending on use and exposure)
  • Invisible finish

Usage

Nanovia Plastimperm is a ready for use product. Shake before use. For a perfect application only apply Nanovia Plastimperm on a clean surface devoid of dust, grease, or any residual chemical.

It’s possible to use Nanovia plastimperm with the following methods, in two layers of 100 à 300g/m2 depending on the material’s porosity.

Brushed / Sprayed

  • Nanovia Plastimperm can be directly sprayed or brushed on the 3D printed piece in 2-3 even layers. Prints sprayed with Nanovia Plastimperm are ready for use after 12 hours of drying at room temperature.
  • Using a chemical formula adapted air brush (using a toric seal) is recommended.

Submersion

  • Ideal for small pieces, it’s possible to directly submerge your 3D prints in Nanovia Plastimperm for 1-2 minutes 2-3 times. Prints treated this way are ready for use after 12 hours of drying at room temperature.

It’s possible to accelerate the drying process by heating up the 3D print up to 40°C.

Packaging

500 mL aluminium bottles. 25 Bottles per box.
