Infinite Material Solutions, LLC, a material design company focused on additive manufacturing, announced the official launch of a 3D printing water-soluble support material called AquaSys 180. Built for exceptional temperature stability, this new product thrives in printing conditions that no existing water-soluble support material can withstand. This makes it uniquely compatible with industry-favored thermoplastics, such as Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) and Polyetherimide (PEI), and significantly reduces the cost and time of downstream processing.
The step-forward that AquaSys 180 represents will be apparent to any business that uses Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) to print parts made from these high-temperature thermoplastics. Until now, doing so has required that each part be printed with support structures made from materials that either need to be removed manually, or dissolved with harmful solvents. With AquaSys 180, users can now dissolve support structures with nothing more than warm tap water, leaving behind a finished part with minimal residue—effectively rendering these previous, laborious methods obsolete.
