Polymer Grade Can be Used in Food Contact Applications
The polymer can be used in most fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printers.
Elix Polymers now offers Elix ABS-3D FC filament for 3D printing using fused filament fabrication (FFF) technology. This grade, which is available in numerous colors, is biocompatible according to USP Class VI. This means that it can also be used in food contact applications.
Elix ABS-3D FC is designed to be easy to print, provides good inter-layer adhesion, and enables production of high-resolution, low-warpage parts. Compatible with most FFF 3D printers, it is part of a growing range of grades available from Elix Polymers for 3D printing.
