PrintaMent METAL is an 80% bronze filled PLA based filament which is easy to print, sand & polish. With this filament, you can create the most beautiful objects with real metal characteristics, such as a 3x higher weight then standard PLA, a metal touch & feel and thermo-conductivity. The filament can be printed on almost every type of FDM 3D printer available on the market with retraction enabled on nozzles ≥0.35 mm.
Due to the abrasive nature of metal, we recommend that you use a hardened steel nozzle with this filament. It will print very well with a regular brass nozzle too, but the wear and tear is higher and the risk for wearing out your nozzle increases.
Postprocessing can make it look just like a cast molded model. When the print is done it looks almost like clay, but following techniques help to bring out that metal gloss: A rotary tumbler is the easiest way of handling the finished print. You can also use some fine grit sand paper (600) and polish your print to desired finish. Polish the model with sand paper and water. The longer you polish, the better the shine. You can finish with some metal polish for that perfect look.
