PolyDissolve S2 Support filament for ABS, ASA and PC

PolyDissolve™ S2 is a dissolvable support for PC, ABS and ASA based filaments from Polymakers portfolio. It is specifically engineered to have a perfect interface with these materials while also displaying good solubility.

We recommend that this material be used with the PolyBox™ to keep it at dry conditions (relative humidity of 15% or less) at all times to maintain the best printing results.

Features

Complex Geometry - PolyDissolve™ 2 is a preferable solution when printing complex geometries, overhangs, internal cavities and complicated structures. It liberates you from support removal problems, and enables greater design freedom.

Wide Material Support - PolyDissolve™ S2 displays an excellent surface adhesion with PC, ABS and ASA based materials which unlocks new applications requiring more complex geometries.

Heat Resistance - The heat resistance of PolyDissolve™ S2 allows it to be printed in the printing environment required to print PC, ABS or ASA (up to 80˚C chamber temperature), without collapsing.

Soluble Supports - PolyDissolve™ S2 is a Polyacrylate support material that can be dissolved in warm alkaline water by using PolyDissolve™ S2 solute.

Improved Surface Quality - Greatly improve the surface quality where supports interface with your prints when using PolyDissolve™ S2.

Quality Control - Polymakers leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing, ensure reliable printing and consistency across spools and batches.

PolyDissolve S2 Soluble Support Material

When printing some materials or parts with complex geometry it can be really difficult and time consuming to remove supports. Sometimes special tools are required to break supports away from the model and in many cases prints can fail due to support related issues.

PolyDissolve S2 Support Structure

PolyDissolve™ S2 is a leading support material for engineers due to its compatibility with high temperature thermoplastics like PC, ABS and ASA inside a heated chamber. Print the entire support structure in PolyDissolve™ S2 for complex models or simply preserve PolyDissolve™ S2 for the interface support layer, reducing print time and part cost.

After printing, the model can be submerged in warm alkaline water (>70˚C) to dissolve away the rest of the support. This process can be sped up by agitating the water, using higher temperature (~90˚C) or regularly changing the water.

All Polymaker products are formulated by Polymakers experienced R&D team to provide new optimized and innovative material solutions for the industry. Whether it be improving printing reliability & experience (Warp-Free™, Jam-Free™) to maximising material performance and functionality (Layer-Free™, Nano reinforcement). Polymakers patented technologies and expansive portfolio have continued to provide empowering solutions to customers internationally, from Automotive manufacturers and Construction companies right down to the entrepreneur and household maker.

Industry Leading Quality Control

PolyDissolve™ S2 like all other Polymaker materials is manufactured using state-of-the-art polymer processing technologies and equipment. Polymakers rigorous quality control process ensures industrial standards of reliability for a consistent customer experience.
Tolerance: Polymakers custom developed extrusion, control and monitoring solutions ensure filament tolerance (typical tolerance ± 0.02mm) and roundness meet Polymakers strict quality standards.
Reliable Mechanical, Colouring & Printing Properties: Every batch of filament products are tested to ensure all quality specs (melt flow, softening point, mechanical, diameter, round-ness) are met.
Drying & Vacuum Sealing: Before packaging, all Polymaker filaments are dried to a moisture level of < 0.1% to ensure the best printing quality and are vacuum sealed to protect the filament from moisture. All vacuum packaged products are left for 24 hours before boxing to ensure they are leak-free.

Packaging

Transparent Spool: PolyDissolve™ S2 is carefully wound on Polymakers 500g transparent spools. With the transparent spool and the weight gauge, it is easy to see exactly how much filament is left for your next printing project.
Resealable Bag: PolyDissolve™ S2 is packaged in an aluminium foil resealable bag to ensure your filament is moisture free. Like all PVA based materials, PolyDissolve™ S2 is hygroscopic so we highly recommend keeping this bag for filament storage.

Storage & Drying

Before packaging, PolyDissolve™ S2 is dried to ensure the best printing quality and filaments are vacuum sealed to protect the filament from moisture. When not in use PolyDissolve™ S2 should be stored away from sunlight in the packaged resealable bag.

PolyDissolve™ S2 is less hygroscopic than support materials like PVA however it is still highly recommended to store PolyDissolve™ S2 in the PolyBox™ or dry cabinet during printing to prevent moisture absorption which will lower the quality of the print. The PolyBox™ keeps the filament at dry conditions (relative humidity of 15% or less). 

If you hear popping sounds and notice that the surface quality of your print is uneven or the color is not consistent, this is a likely indicator that the filament has absorbed too much moisture. Spools of PolyDissolve™ S2 can be dried in a preheated convection oven at 70˚C for up to 3 hours. Results may vary depending on the accuracy of your oven so please be conservative. For more information about filament drying please read our user guide.

Compatibility

PolyDissolve™ S2 has been engineered with compatibility in mind to interface perfectly with Polymaker ABS, ASA and PC filaments and to print excellently on a wide range of professional 3D printers.

To print multi-material soluble supports, a dual extrusion 3D printer capable of printing both the modeling and support material at different temperatures is required. (i.e left nozzle at 260˚C and right nozzle at 240˚C).

Of course with thousands of unique 3d printer models on the market, we can't guarantee each filament type will work with every 3D printer.


FAQ

Q: How do I dissolve my supports?
A: Partially removing any large support structures before submersion can significantly increase speed up the process for large models. After partially removing the support the model can be submerged in warm alkaline water (>70˚C) using PolyDissolve™ S2 solvent or Ecoworks to dissolve away the rest of the support. This process can be sped up by agitating the water, using higher temperature (~90˚C) or regularly changing the water.

Q: How do I dispose of PolyDissolve™ S2 supports.
A:  The preferred method of disposal for PolyDissolve™ S2 depends on the local regulations. PolyDissolve™ S2 does not contain halogens or heavy metals. The pH usually drops under 10
 the dissolution of PolyDissolve™ S2, if not, mild acid can be used to drop the pH. It is suggested that you contact your local Sanitary Sewer (Wastewater) Authority to obtain the proper disposal method prior to discharging to the sewer.
