MOLDLAY is a revolutionary new 3D printer filament, which is perfect for printing a mold for both permanent casting and investment (lost-wax) casting.
The MOLDLAY filament is specially developed for casting and becomes completely liquid at 270°C. It is a wax-like thermoplastic which can be used for printing a casting mold and it features an excellent dimension stability and has almost no warping effect. At room temperature the printed mold remains stiff and rigid. The filament becomes liquid (with a thin oil viscosity) when heated up to about 270°C thanks to some specially chosen types of oily paraffin.
Print your desired model with MOLDLAY filament at a temperature of 170°-180°C. The printed molds must baked in an oven at approx. 270°C. Below you’ll find both methods for printing a lost wax casting mold and a permanent mold with MOLDLAY filament.
