Description

 

ReForm is a sustainable initiative within Formfutura to efficiently manage residual extrusion waste streams and re-use them into high-end upcycled filaments. The ideology behind ReForm is to a make 3D printing more sustainable – without having to make compromises on material properties – and yet keep it affordable.

ReForm comes in several materials – namely rPLA, rPET, and rTitan – which are based on exactly the same uniquenformulations as respectively our EasyFil PLA, HDglass, and TitanX filament ranges, but are made out of residual extrusion waste streams which are re-compounded and homogenized into high-end filaments with significantly less environmental impact.

With our ReForm initiative we aim to reduce waste streams, make 3D printing more sustainable, and make upcycled/recycled filament significantly more affordable.

Unique features

  • 100% upcycled/recycled filament with retaining the unsurpassed printing properties EasyFil PLA/HDglass/TitanX.
    • Less environmental impact by quality controlling and re-using extrusion waste streams
  • Sustainable packaging
    • ReForm filaments are spooled on easy to recycle and dispose recycled cardboard spools
    • ReForm filament is packaged in recycled carton boxes
