Airwolf 3D today announced Wolfbite, a new premium solution specially engineered to bond ABS plastic parts to a heated 3D printer build plate without warping.
When printing in ABS, the surface is often prepared with a treatment such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film or Kapton tape to a glass plate. After continued use, the film may become damaged, which results in the parts becoming difficult to remove potentially ruining the print.
Airworf has introduced Wolfbite, applied with an applicator brush straight onto the glass, eliminating the need for PET film or Kapton tape and can be ued for several prints. After applying Wolfbite, the glass is heated and ABS parts stick firmly to the glass without warpage.
Airwolf 3D specially formulated the proprietary solution to deliver strong adhesion and to make part removal easy. Once the 3D printed parts have cooled, they can be removed from the printing surface with minimal effort, leaving a clean and smooth bottom surface.
“As manufacturers of 3D printers that are capable of printing large parts in ABS we are aware of the frustrations that warpage and sticking present,” said Erick Wolf, founder and chairman, Airwolf 3D. “After months of research and development, we’re pleased to be able to offer an industry-changing solution that will benefit all 3D printer users.”
Wolfbite comes packaged with a foam brush applicator and is now available for presale on the Airwolf website at an introductory price of $19.99.
