PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) is a water soluble support material for multi-extrusion 3D printing. With a good thermal stability, Ultimaker PVA is ideal for printing complex models that require supports for large overhangs, deep internal cavities, and intricate geometries. Designed for a seamless 3D printing experience, our PVA provides good adhesion to both PLA and Nylon.
Ultimaker PVA is at the heart of our market-leading dual extrusion 3D printing experience.
Reliable adhesion to PLA, Tough PLA, CPE, and Nylon
