PolyWood

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

The Specialty family provides unique filaments from Polymaker to unlock new 3D printing applications. PolyWood™ is a wood mimic filament without actual wood powder, which removes all risks of nozzle clogs. PolyWood™ is made entirely with PLA using a special foaming technology. It exhibits the same density and appearance as wood.

 

Light Weight - The density of PolyWood™ is on average 0.8 g/cm³ which is 35- 40% lighter than regular PLA.

Wood with no mess - Instead of using wood to mimic wood, Polymaker developed a unique foaming technology to deliver a material that mimics wood structurally. PolyWood™ is composed entirely of polymers. The Results? Excellent print quality without the risk of nozzle jams.

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

Technology

PolyWood™ features Polymaker's Jam-Free™ technology and Polymaker's Stabilized Foaming™ technology:


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.


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.
