Tittle:
Biodegradable filaments for 3D printing.
Summary:
A university from Latvia has developed biodegradable filaments for 3D printing, which are environmentally friendly, technically equivalent to their fossil counterparts, compatible with a wide range of desktop 3D printers, and have a competitive price. The university is seeking research cooperation agreements to modify the filament for specific applications as well as offering commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Description:
A university from Latvia, specialised in technical sciences, has developed biodegradable filaments for 3D printing. They is made from bio polymers with additives to improve the filament properties. The filaments contains only non-toxic components. The printed products made from these filaments biologically degrades in humid soil within four months without forming toxic substances and soil pollution.

The biodegradable filament is designed for a wide range of desktop 3D printers used in universities, research centres, schools, business and industrial applications as well in homes for personal use. The filament is suitable for both professional printing jobs (product development, data visualization, rapid prototyping, small scale on-demand manufacturing) and household, leisure and entertainment.

The university seeks for research cooperation to adapt the filament for specific use or improve the production technology as well as offers commercial agreement with technical assistance. The other forms of cooperation might be considered.
Advantages and Innovations:
The filament is compatible with a wide range of leading industrial 3D printers. The biodegradable filament extrudes at nozzle temperatures from 180 to 225°C depending on the printer design.
The starch-based biodegradable filament for 3D printing is in industrial standard size 1.75mm. The filaments are in 1 kg spools and 20 m rolls. The filament is available in different colours.
Thermal and flow characteristics of the filament allow to achieve good printed accuracy with minimal shrinkage, cracking or warping. The filament and printed products made from it are environmentally friendly, biologically degrades within four months, contains only non-toxic components, are virtually smell free, and very safe to work with.
