Facilan™ Ortho Filament
Facilan™ Ortho is a high-performance 3D printing filament developed specifically for orthotics applications.
Facilan™ Ortho can also be used in soft braces, corrective braces, shoe soles and other similar applications. We've developed this material in concert with orthotics producers, orthotics fitters and people who wear orthotics in order to develop the perfect filament for 3D printing orthotics.
- Facilan™ Ortho is a polyester that is semi-crystalline leading to a clean white final appearance.
- The density of Facilan™ Ortho is around 1.2kg/cm 3 and it has exceptional mechanical properties.
- Facilan™ Ortho melts around 60°C which makes it a safe thermoplastic to print.
- With a glass transition temperature of -60°C the product is extremely flexible and tough.
- Facilan™ Ortho is a high-quality biodegradable plastic based on a thermoplastic fulfilling compostability according to EN13432.
- The unique properties of Facilan™ mean that it has excellent adhesion to textiles. This means that 3D printed parts can be combined easily with or bonded to textile inserts, midsoles or other brace or shoe parts.
- Due to the low melting point of Facilan™ Ortho, it can be re-shaped after 3D printing with 55 °C water.
