More information about the mosquito repellent TPU Filafly filament

  • Ideal for creating all kinds of 3D items that will act as a repellent for flying insects.
  • Perfect for printing bracelets, necklaces, keyrings, watch straps, coasters, hiking accessories, and many more.
  • Gives off an intense citronella scent and will maintain its mosquito-repellent properties for up to 2 years if the item is kept indoors.
  • Its semi-rigid structure makes it easier to extrude and print flexible objects that are pleasant to the touch.
  • Similar to PLA filaments in extrusion temperatures, but with a higher compressive and tensile strength.
  • Suitable for 3D printers with direct or Bowden extrusion systems.
  • 100% recyclable material, non-toxic, with food-grade certification. You may use it for pet or children's toys that may come into contact with the mouth.
  • Delivered in a cardboard box, vacuum packed and wound on clear plastic spools to preserve its fragrance.

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

  • TPU is a material prone to absorbing moisture. When this happens, the filament can make bubbles or creaks when printing. 
  • To remove moisture, you can use any of the following strategies:
    • Leave the filament in a closed room with a dehumidifier for 24 hours
    • Place the filament in an oven for 2 hours at 60 °C

STORAGE & PRESERVATION

  • Filaments tend to absorb moisture from the environment, leading to problems during printing or finishing touches. For this reason, it is important to keep the relative humidity value between 10-15%
  • Moisture may cause the filament to degrade, clogging the extruder and varying its physical and mechanical properties.
  • To keep the filament in good condition and preserve its aroma for as long as possible, it needs to be stored and dried correctly.
  • The filament must be stored in airtight containers, preferably vacuum packed. You can use zip bags with silica gel beads, vacuum-sealed bags or food containers with a vacuum seal.
  • There are many techniques to remove moisture, including:
    • Drying the filament in a home oven or a food dehydrator at low temperatures for long periods.
    • Using a filament dryer.
  • The lifespan of a filament can vary according to different factors, so it is important to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for drying and storage parameters.
