Material: 2.85 mm Fluorinar-H™ and Fluorinar-B™ filaments with Kynar® PVDF
Extrusion Temperature: 260 C
Print Speed: 30 mm/s
Build Platform: Heated glass bed 100 C
Adhesive: Elmer's disappearing purple glue
Brim: No brim required for Fluorinar-C™while a 10 mm brim was used for Fluorinar-H™
Fluorinar-H™ and Fluorinar-C™ Kynar® PVDF
Fluorinar-H™ (natural) and Fluorinar-C™ (black)
Fluorinar-B™ PVDF is an excellent filament choice for:
wide chemical resistance
long term UV exposure
low surface energy
SIP and CIP sterilization
more than 200% tensile elongation
150 C maximum use temperature
hydrophobic filament - zero moisture sensitivity
This part was printed on a heated glass build plate to 100 C. The hot end was 260 C and the print speed was 30 mm/s. Adhesion to the glass build plate was achieved by using Elmer's disappearing purple glue stick. The parts must be allowed to cool to room temperature. The glass will be damaged if the parts are removed prior to sufficient cooling.
How easy does this filament print? A little more difficult than PLA but easier than Nylon or ABS since it has very low warpage and prints on glass.

Fluorinar-H™ is a little trickier to use but not impossible. This filament prints similar to Nylon or ABS. Warping is more intense due to the higher degree of crystallinity but can provide excellent parts given careful design and use of brims.
