Filament BCN3D PVA
BCN3D PVA is a water-soluble polymer, ideal for working as an auxiliary material for printing complicated geometries, large overhangs or complex cavities.
Filament BCN3D PVA 2.85mm 500g
PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) is a water-soluble thermoplastic, commonly used as an auxiliary material for 3D FFF printers. Optimized for the FFF production process, BCN3D PVA is compatible with most BCN3D filaments and can easily be printed to form support structures and then dissolved in plain water.
PVA supports help achieve better surface quality, orientate parts for better mechanical properties, and even print multi-component models and mechanisms.
High-performance materials for professional prototyping
BCN3D filaments are manufactured by BASF and Mitsubishi Chemical, two of the world's best known chemical corporations. Experience and expert knowledge in the production of plastics, together with advanced production technology - provide filaments with the highest repeatability on the market. Each spool will consistently show the same quality and will always offer the same results.
Application of BCN3D PVA filament
PVA filament is a material used mainly to obtain support structures in places where supports of model material could prove impossible to remove. PVA after dissolution leaves a smooth and aesthetic surface of the model.
- Exceptional adhesion with PLA
- Also great in combination with PET-G, TPU and Nylon
- Water-soluble supports for partially enclosed cavities and complex geometries
- Sacrificial moulds

Orient parts to get better properties
When printing with PVA, you are able to orient your model in any possible way to customize its strength or your aesthetic requirements.
Printing supports for elements suspended in the air
he BCN3D PVA was specially developed to work as a support material for PLA, Nylon, TPU and PET-G, so you can now print mechanical parts using support structures.
