The Bendlay  3D Printer Filament has been developed by Kai Parthy , along with the other premium filaments LayBrick and Laywoo-D3.   Which we also have in stock. BendLay shall play it¬•s rule where ABS is too hard and flexible-PLA is not tight enough, says Andre Sperlich, head of Orbi-Tech. It is clear almost transparent, can print between 215‚àû to 240‚àûC, and be printed at high speed, however it will adhere to the bed if first extruded at a temperature of 240‚àûC. While printing with high speed, best layer adhesion can be obtained at 240‚àûC Thermal stable as PLA (65 70‚àûC).

Bendlay is a modified ABS, and can be used in food-packaging and medical devices.  The water absorption is only 30% of the ABS No stress whitening by bending High interlayer adhesion Soluble in brake cleaner; acetone will make Bendlay crumble You can view a video of a Bendlay print here http://goo.gl/1UAT9b The filament price has been calculated to include postage and packaging.

ABS

Overview

Strong and robust. Heat and chemical resilient. An Inexpensive choice for engineering-grade prints.

ABS has solid mechanical properties in the form of heat and impact resistance. Its high durability makes it perfect for printing moving and weight-bearing parts. ABS is shatter resistant; when pushed to its limit parts will bend or warp instead of snapping or shattering. ABS has decent chemical sustainability, making it resilient to sunlight, moisture, acids, and oils. Long exposure to sunlight may cause prints to degrade, making ASA a better choice for outdoor prints.

ABS is quite a common material making it relatively inexpensive whilst also being built to last in tough environments. The main detriment is that it can be quite difficult to print with, and can require printer tuning to get the perfect print.
Printed parts can be polished with acetone, giving them a smooth and glossy finish and hiding layer lines. When printing with this material, it is possible that toxic fumes are produced. This can be circumvented by printing In a well-ventilated area or using an extractor.

Used for: Injection molding, LEGO, electronic casings, automotive parts.
