MG Chemicals Thermochromic filament is formulated to provide a discoloration effect when exposed to heat.

ABS Version

 

MG Chemicals ABS Thermochromic 3D printer filaments are made of high purity Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene pellets with a tight diameter tolerance. It is a normal ABS formulated to provide a discoloration effect when exposed to heat. They resist higher temperatures and offer great machinability, flexibility and strength making it the preferred choice of engineers and professionals. ABS plastic can be dissolved and welded in our 434 Acetone making post processing easy. It is important to note that a heated bed printer is required to work with this type of material and because it is petroleum based it emits a slight hazardous odour when heated, making a less desirable for home use. It is recommended that this product be printed in a well ventilated area. ABS print temperature is 210 °C - 240 °C / 410 °F - 464 °F C on a heated bed at 110 °C / 230 °F (These temperatures may vary between printers and colours).

PLA Version

MG Chemicals Thermochromic Polylactic Acid or Polylactide (PLA) 3D printing filaments are a corn based product made from high purity, high temperature pellets. It is a normal PLA formulated to provide a discoloration effect when exposed to heat. It does not require a heated print bed and easily adheres to masking tapes. It is very hard, acetone resistant and can achieve faster print speeds and lower layer heights when properly used. The PLA Thermochromic print temperature is 180 °C - 230 °C / 356 °F - 446 °F (Temperatures may vary between printers and colours) and if a heated bed is used the bed temperature should be 60 °C / 140 °F. It is the optimal choice for use in homes, schools and makers / hobbyists workshops or studios.
