AUSTIN, Texas, Apr. 07, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A new high-strength filament for 3D printing has hit the scene: T-glase Polar White from the Taulman company (www.Taulman3D.com). The filament was co-developed by Mike Adams, the "Health Ranger," a Texas-based lab science director and inventor who worked with the Taulman company to create an ultra-strong, water-tight 3D printing filament for his newly launched Food Rising non-profit project (www.FoodRising.org).
Unlike existing T-glase filament, T-glase Polar White is opaque, resulting in prints that look like they were created out of alabaster or frozen snow (hence the name "Polar White"). The new filament is significantly stronger than existing T-glase filaments, resulting in very high structural integrity and high resistance to de-lamination (layer-to-layer strength), even for 3D-printed parts which might typically be fragile.
T-Glase Polar White also features high flow rates at relatively low print nozzle temperatures, minimal shrinkage during the print and very high durability of the finished object.
Adams is using the T-glase Polar White filament to produce functional valve parts that enable his Food Rising grow systems to be self-watering. "We needed a 3D printer filament that would produce water-tight, functional parts with small nozzles that resisted breaking," he explains. "It also had to print reliably, even on non-heated print beds. Nothing else existed on the market with these properties, so I reached out to the Taulman company for a custom solution."
The new filament worked so well that Taulman has added it to its T-glase line of 3D printer filaments, which already include T-glase, Bridge Nylon and many others.
Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") has already donated 250 Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box systems to schools, universities, community centers and churches across America, helping teach children how to grow their own food while learning about the revolutionary technology of 3D printing.
