Fiberlogy, a leading Polish manufacturer of 3D printing filaments has expanded the range of its materials with FiberSmooth – a printing filament that allows for the creation of prints with an almost perfectly smooth finish.

FiberSmooth is the trade name for polyvinyl butyral (PVB). This polymer is valued for its ease of processing through isopropyl alcohol (IPA) treatment. As a result of an alcohol ‘bath’, or in IPA vapors, the outer perimeters dissolve – creating a solid structure and blurring the boundaries between the layers. This creates a smooth, glossy surface that gains strength when completely dry.

PVB filaments, like FiberSmooth, can be classified as products with aesthetic and hobby values rather than technical ones. They resemble PLA with their properties and are also easy to print – making them suitable more most extrusion-based printers. It is suited for the production of decorative elements, figurines, ornaments, ready-made products, etc.

When printing with FiberSmooth, the printing temperature should be 215-225°C, the bed temperature should be 75°C, and a closed chamber is not required. Cooling should be at 75-100%, and the print speed should be <100 mm/s. There is no need for surface adhesives.

FiberSmooth was launched in five colors – black, graphite, gray, red, and blue. Fiberlogy will be systematically adding new colors, including a pure version, which makes it possible to have an almost perfectly transparent 3D print.

FiberSmooth filament is available for sale through Fiberlogy’s network of resellers.
