MG Chemicals Glow In The Dark filament has been formulated to provide a lighting effect in the dark by absorbing natural or manmade light.

ABS Version

MG Chemicals ABS Glow in the Dark 3D printing filaments are made of high purity Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene pellets with a tight diameter tolerance. It is a normal ABS in which we incorporated a luminescent formula to provide a lighting effect in the dark by absorbing natural or manmade light. They resist higher temperatures and offer great machinability, fl exibility and strength making it the preferred choice of engineers and professionals. ABS plastic can be dissolved and welded in our 434 Acetone making post processing easy

It is important to note that a heated bed printer is required to work with this type of material and because it is petroleum based it emits a slight hazardous odour when heated, making a less desirable for home use. It is recommended that this product be printed in a well ventilated area.

ABS print temperature is 230 °C - 250 °C / 446 °F - 482 °F on a heated bed at 110 °C / 230 °F (These temperatures may vary between printers and colours).

PLA Version

MG Chemicals Glow in the Dark Polylactic Acid or Polylactide (PLA) 3D printing filaments are a corn based product made from high purity, high temperature pellets. It is a normal PLA in which we incorporated a luminescent formula to provide a lighting effect in the dark by absorbing natural or manmade light. It does not require a heated print bed and easily adheres to masking tapes. It is very hard, acetone resistant and can achieve faster print speeds and lower layer heights when properly used. The PLA Glow in the Dark print temperature is 180 °C – 230 °C / 356 °F - 446 °F (Temperatures may vary between printers and colours) and if a heated bed is used the bed temperature should be 60 °C / 140 °F. It is the optimal choice for use in homes, schools and makers / hobbyists workshops or studios.
