Helios Support is a water-soluble PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) support material for complex multi-extrusion 3D printing with styrene-based materials, or thermoplastics that need to be 3D printed at elevated temperatures. Helios Support is a 3D printer filament with excellent thermal stability that can be 3D printed at nozzle temperatures up to 250° C. This makes Helios Support an ideal PVA support material with good thermal and chemical adherence to Styrene-based filaments and other materials that need to be 3D printed at higher temperatures.


Key features

  • Good solubility in lukewarm water

    • Circulating water will speed up the dissolvability process
  • Excellent thermal stability, resulting in minimal risk on deterioration/crystalizing inside the nozzle

    • ​​​​​​​Max thermal stability of 250° C, tested up to 256 seconds with no flow
  • Can be printed in heated build chambers up to 60° C

  • Biodegradable once dissolved in water

    • ​​​​​​​Safe dissolution in tap water
    • Can be disposed of in the kitchen sink, or household drain with an excess of water
  • Good bonding to Styrene-based materials and other (thermo)plastics that print within a similar temperature range

    • ​​​​​​​Good adherence to ABS, TitanX, ClearScent ABS, ApolloX, Crystal Flex, Python Flex and Volcano PLA



  • Reliable multi-extrusion 3D printing of complex structures that require a water-soluble support material

  • 3D printing geometries with large overhangs, or complex hollow structures
    • PVA Molds​​​​​​​
