Unlimited Size: Fluorinar-C™ PVDF 3D filament prints flat objects
Nile Polymers is excited to announce our new Fluorinar-C™ filament made from Arkema’s Kynar® PVDF copolymer. Currently available in 2.85 mm diameters in a white color, our 3D printing filament is ideal for printing large parts that remain perfectly flat during the printing process and after cooling. Outstanding properties of our Fluorinar-C™ filament include:
- PVDF print sizes are only limited by machine print volume or filament length
- Bottom print layer remains perfectly flat without using brims or rafts
- No loss of part dimensions due to warping
- No warping due to sharp corners on the printed part
- Fully compatible with Fluorinar-H™ filament in multi-extrusion printers
Significant design or size limitations that exist for other PVDF filaments are no longer a problem for the Fluorinar-C™. For the first time, printed part sizes are limited by printer build volume or the amount of filament in the spool. The above Schedule 80 2-inch flange with a 6-inch pipe stub was printed with 100% infill and weighs almost 600 g.
Fluorinar-C™ filament provides high-quality prints for prototypes, one-off parts or small production runs. These prints can be used in environments which exceed the capabilities of other 3D print materials. Fluorinar-C™ can also be used as an adhesion layer to help prevent warping in Fluorinar-H™ prints. Video examples of 3D printing with our Fluorinar™ filaments can be found at the Nile Polymers YouTube Channel. Additional 3D printed PVDF parts are shown on our Fluorinar-C™ product page.
Unlike other advanced polymers, printing with Fluorinar-C™ filament can be done on consumer-grade equipment at a material price that won’t break the bank. Contact us today and order a 1000 g spool of Fluorinar-C™ or a 5-meter filament test sample and get ready to experience something amazing.

Nile Polymers is pleased to announce our new Fluorinar-H™ filament made from Arkema’s Kynar® PVDF homopolymer. Available in 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm diameters in a natural color, our 3D printing filament is ideal for printing applications in chemical or high-temperature environments. Outstanding properties of our PVDF filament include:
- Upper use temperature of 150 C
- Long-term performance in direct contact with HCl, H2SO4, HF and HBr
- UV resistant for years of sunlight without loss of mechanical properties
- Low coefficient of friction for exceptional material release
- Gamma ray sterilization without loss of tensile strength
- Zero flame spread
- Ion extraction at ppb levels
- USP Class VI
- Lot traceability
- 100% Kynar® PVDF: no additives, stabilizers, plasticizers, fillers or colorants
- Full melt compatibility with our Fluorinar-C™ PVDF copolymer filament
There are no perfect materials for every 3D printing application. However, Fluorinar-H™ filament will provide high-quality prints for prototypes, one-off prints or small production runs> These prints can be used in environments which exceed the capabilities of other 3D print materials. Fluorinar-H™ parts are made to be used and not stored on the shelf. When you need Kynar® PVDF, nothing else will work.
Our PVDF filament is a low surface energy material so it does not adhere well to most surfaces. Print adhesion can be tough to achieve unless you know one thing: Elmer’s disappearing purple glue stick. Apply a thin layer of this adhesive evenly to a clean glass print surface. Heat the printing bed to 100 C and extrude the Fluorinar™ filament at 240 – 260 C. Print speed can be set between 20 – 40 mm/s. Turn off the print surface cooling fans and get ready to see results as good as any other material available today. Video examples of 3D printing with our PVDF filament can be found at the Nile Polymers YouTube Channel. Additional 3D printed PVDF parts are shown on our Fluorinar-H™ product page.
Unlike other advanced polymers, printing with Fluorinar-H™ filament can be done on consumer-grade equipment at a material price that won’t break the bank. Contact us today and order a 500 g spool of Fluorinar-H™ or a 5-meter filament test sample and get ready to expand your printing possibilities.
