Recycled & recyclable PS OWA filament

By buying an OWA recycled PS filament you are opting for a new filament material for 3D printers:

PS is a technical, lightweight and durable thermoplastic that offers a quality alternative to conventional ABS. It combines the mechanical properties of an ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene plastic) filament with a better surface finish without any toxic fumes.

A 100% versatile filament to realize all your ideas in 3D

Good mechanical strength and high-quality surface finish

  • Printability: good adherence to the plate, quick printing, a very regular filament that avoids blocking of the nozzles during printing.
  • Easy post-treatment: secondary operations like finishing (filing, sanding), soldering and bonding.
  • Visual quality: excellent quality of parts, of surface finishing and resolution, good dimensional stability, the precision of printed parts (true to dimensions).
  • Hardness and highly shock-resistant, even in cold temperatures.
  • Optimal elongation constraints for a practically unbreakable filament: no rupture in mechanical traction tests, comparable elastic deformation to other polymers used in 3D printing.

Now it’s your turn, give volume to your ideas!

Thanks to its technical characteristics, strength, and versatility, PS OWA has numerous possible applications, which makes it a true alternative to conventional ABS filaments:

  • Capacity to withstand very strong mechanical forces: ideal for creating hard-wearing and durable parts such as functional prototypes, automotive parts, protective equipment…
  • Precision and stability of the printed parts: ideal for model-making, architectural scale models, toys and consumer goods…

A recycled and 100% sustainable PS OWA filament born of an ingenious re-use of materials

PS OWA filaments are the result of a wholly controlled and certified plastics recycling process. OWA spools and filaments are the results of reused materials recovered in particular from used ink cartridges collected and recycled by ARMOR. Combined with a collection service, OWA spools and filaments are designed to be completely recycled after use.

  • A 30% reduction in carbon emissions environmental impact compared with a virgin filament.
  • You print in a responsible manner with a clear conscience.

Tested and approved: PS OWA, a risk-free material

PS OWA filaments are tested and confirmed to be harmless for the health of its users.

In order to guarantee user safety, Armor 3D has measured the VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions while its PS filaments are being used. The study proves that Armor 3D filaments present no health hazards in normal conditions of use.

A quality 3D filament compatible with all 3D filament deposition printers

Tests are carried out at each production stage to ensure the regularity of our filaments and guarantee their compatibility with all printers.

No bubbles and a constant diameter, with a tolerance of ±0.05 mm, that guarantee smooth operation of the print nozzles and constant print quality from one spool to another, whatever the colour used.

Available in two diameters (1.75 and 2.85), PS OWA filaments are compatible with all 3D printers and pens.

Armor 3D’s teams and beta testers have tested a great many 3D printers from the main brands on the market: Dagoma, Leapfrog, Makerbot, Maylan, Mutoh, Tobeca, Ultimaker, Volumic 3D, Wanhao, Zortrax…

PS OWA filaments come in a variety of packs. Makers, schools, universities, design and engineering firms, DIY enthusiasts, marketing or innovation departments… whether your 3D printing requirements are regular or occasional, we have the pack of 3D filaments that meets them.
