Posted · Nitric acid resistant filament ?


A customer is asking me about a nitric acid filament... Do you have something to suggest ?

Copolyester like Ultimaker CPE are indicated as chemical resistant but no more informations about it.

Any of you has tried this out ?

Thanks (:

    I don't think there is such a thing as a truly resistant filament if you are talking about concentrated nitric acid.

    If you are "just" talking about lower concentrations (<10% or so), then CPE or Polycarbonate should probably work...

    Well I didn't have more informations about his project, I gave him all technical and security datasheets and I let him check by himself. Then I'll try to give him a sample but I agree, it sounds difficult to find such a resistant filament

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
