  • Low water pickup, not affected by humidity
  • Extreme layer strength
  • Perfect for living hinges, (fatigue resistant)

Add North’s OBC Polyethylene is an engineering grade filament that lets you print lightweight, chemical resistant and extremely durable parts. One popular use case is various sorts of containers with living hinges, thanks to the materials excellent fatigue resistance. OBC Polyethylene is a suitable filament for many applications that requires extreme durability and layer adhesion. The printed surface is very smooth to the touch and provides good looking parts.

As the first polyethylene-based build material for 3D printing, this breakthrough high performance filament brings polyolefin properties to 3D printing, without the issues commonly associated with printing polypropylene. Its semi-crystalline structure enables excellent z-axis properties in printed parts and its outstanding chemical resistance enables new 3D printing applications.
