Helios Support is a "high heat" water-soluble PVA material developed as a carrier material for dual-extrusion 3D printing in combination with engineering materials.

Helio Support can be printed in combination with materials at higher temperatures and/or in heated installation spaces.

Helio Support can be printed at nozzle temperatures up to 255 ° C without the risk of nozzle clogging.

It sticks excellently to styrene-based materials such as ABS, TitanX, Crystal Flex and ApolloX, but also to Python Flex and Volcano PLA.

Helios Support dissolves slightly more slowly in water than normal PVA, but the dissolution process can be accelerated using warm and circulating water.

Unique features:

  • Can be printed at nozzle temperatures up to 255 ° C
  • No risk of nozzle clogging
  • Improved filament flow behaviour
  • Can be printed in heated chambers up to 60 ° C
  • Excellent adhesion to ABS, TitanX, ClearScent ABS, ApolloX, Crystal Flex, Python Flex and Volcano PLA
  • Excellent solubility in warm circulating water
  • Fully biodegradable when dissolved in water

Did you know?

The most popular technology used for 3D printing is FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling). A heated nozzle (hot-end) melts the plastic wire, layering the melted parts.
