When it looks better in metal

ICE filaments METAL is a special filament which contains about 80% metal shavings.
Thanks to these metal parts, your print will obtain a valuable bronze or copper look. This offers you the possibility to create the most beautiful objects with the real METAL characteristics, a real METAL touch and the corresponding thermal conductivity. A special lubricant increases the flow and prevents METAL from adhering to the nozzle. All the above combined with the correct hardness, results in a filament that's easy to print on almost every type of FDM 3d printer available on the market.
  • PLA-based, 3 times heavier
  • Approximately 80% METAL content
  • Easy to print, sand, polish
  • Possibility to print with retraction (works on nozzles ≥0.35 mm)
