Polymaker PolyWood Filament

PolyWood

Features Polymaker's Jam-Free™ technology and Stabilized Foaming™ technology

PolyWood™ is a wood mimic filament without actual wood powder, this removes the risk of nozzle clogging that is closely associated with other wood filaments. PolyWood™ is made entirely with PLA using a special foaming technology. It exhibits the same density and appearance as wood.

FEATURES

Light Weight – Mimicking the light weight of real wood, the density of PolyWood™ is on average 0.8 g/cm³ which is 35- 40% lighter than regular PLA.

Less Hassles - Instead of using wood particles to mimic wood, Polymaker developed a unique foaming technology to deliver a material that mimics wood structurally. PolyWood™ is composed entirely of polymers. The result? Excellent print quality without the risk of nozzle jams associated with other wood filaments.

Uncompromised Quality - Polymakers leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing ensure reliable printing and consistency across spools and batches.

Technology

Jam-Free™ - Jam-Free™ technology improves the heat stability of Polymaker’s PLA filaments with softening temperatures over 140 °C. As a result, Polymaker’s PLA filaments show minimal softening in the “cold end” and can melt rapidly once entering the heating zone, leading to excellent printing quality with zero risk of nozzle jams caused by heat creep.

Stabilized Foaming™ - Stabilized Foaming™ technology is used to produce foamed filaments, whose foam structure can survive the printing process and be inherited by the printed parts. This enables light weight 3D printed parts with unprecedented surface finish.
