Directa Plus Releases Graphene-based Filament for 3D Printing

Directa Plus, Italian supplier and producer of graphene-based products, has teamed up with 3D printing material division of Ciceri de Mondel, FILOALFA, to bring GRAFYLON 3D filament to the market.

GRAFYLON 3D is based on PLA and filled with the company’s proprietary Graphene Plus material, enhancing the properties of the filament. Compared to non-graphene-based filaments the developers observed the following improvements in performance:

  • improvement in surface finish, unique aesthetic effect
  • thermal conduction properties
  • elastic modulus improvement by 34%
  • tensile strength increased by 23%
  • elongation increased by 28%

Giulio Cesareo, CEO of Directa Plus, said: “We are delighted to launch GRAFYLON® 3D, in collaboration with FILOALFA, which is our first product in the 3D printing market. Our new filaments provide advantages over non-graphene-based filaments that open up new areas of application for 3D printing based on the incredible properties, such as conductivity and material strength. We believe they can revolutionise industry standards in the 3D printing field.”

GRAFYLON 3D is available as of now through FILOALFA’s website and selected retailers. The 700 g spool comes with a price tag of €39.
