We are excited to announce a new 3D printing filament available, Ice9 Rigid. We have been working hard to expand our materials and in total we now have three 3D printing filaments available under the thermally conductive Ice9TM brand: Ice9 Flex, Rigid, and E-insulating (electrically insulating). Ice9 Rigid is a Nylon composite based a proprietary filler system including aerospace grade carbon fibers. In addition to the new filament, we have upgraded our existing filaments, details below.
- Ice9 Rigid: 175°C operating temp, 4 W/m-K
- Ice9 Flex: Now 33% higher thermal conductivity (8 W/m-K)
- Ice9 E-insulating: Now 25% stiffer (Bowden compatible)
Pre-ordering is now available for Ice9 Rigid with first shipments in June. Click on the links above for ordering information and datasheets, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
