Kora 3D to offer new consumables

Kora 3D, a British company that develops desktop 3D printers, has developed two new consumables including a bed adhesive and an anti-static cleaning spray, both of which can be refilled.

Kora 3D has developed the Formula 3D bed adhesive and Safety Cleaner 3D anti-static cleaning solutions.

The bed adhesive is Formula 3D, which is non-flammable and water-based. It’s used to hold an object to the bed of the 3D printer during printing – the trick of course is to make sure that you can remove said object after printing. Most of these adhesives have a high alcohol content, typically between 40 and 90 percent, though Formula 3D is said to have just 24 percent alcohol content. Formula 3D is said to be suitable for use with the majority of build plates and 3D printing filaments. It is designed to accelerate the adhesive drying time when applied to unheated build plates and it can withstand build plate temperatures in excess of 80°C.

It’s applied as a foam rather than a spray, which Kora claims will cut down the amount that needs to be applied and limit the risk of contaminating the printers’ mechanical parts and bearings. It also means that there’s no need for an aerosol so that it can be easily posted anywhere in the world. It’s supplied in 100ml and 500ml bottles, priced at £10.95 and £34.95 respectively. 

The second of these consumables, Safety Cleaner-3D, is an eco-friendly anti-static cleaning spray designed specifically for use with both safety cabinets and 3D printers. It prevents static build-up and removes and repels dust, small particles and residual emissions in and around 3D printers. This costs £8.95 for 100ml and £29.95 for 500ml. 

Both of these products are supplied in plastic bottles but Kora 3D has set up a service to refill these bottles so that they don’t end up as yet more plastic waste. There’s a 20 percent discount for refilling these bottles against just buying new ones. Anyone buying six or more bottles will get an envelope with the postage paid so that they can be returned free of charge from within the UK for refilling.
