Fichte is part of our BIO Design range. This fiber-reinforced plastic boasts extraordinary processing properties thanks to its biological spruce fiber. Fichte has a wood-like feel, and is made from 100% renewable resources.
- Very good printing and flow properties
- Mechanically and thermally comparable to PLA
- Biodegradable according to DIN EN ISO 14855
Due to its structure, Fichte is excellent at withstanding pressure and stress.
Elongation at Break
The wood fibers make the material stiff. As a result, tensile stretch is minimal.
Like PLA, Fichte is temperature-resistant up to 60-70 °C.
Ease of Printing
Fichte is best processed at temperatures of 160-180 °C and with a nozzle of 0.5-0.6 mm. As a result, the material is suitable for advanced users.
From 0.15 mm, there are no visible grooves in the layers. Small and medium batches can be produced to a professional quality.
Like PLA, Fichte has average layer adhesion.
Resistance to impact could be increased when optimizing the material.
