What filament for 3D printing, for water use


#1

Hi

Thinking about printing some of the parts myself. I have access to an Ultimaker 2+.

What type of fillament would you use, for the parts going into the water. I know Nylon is drawing water in, and PLA is biodegradeble.
I can see that ASA is weatherproof.

What would you use?

Thanks
Have a nice weekend.

Hi,
We use black ASA for our GoPro adapters and they seem to hold up well

I’m using Black ABS.

Abs ngen or polycarbonate will all work fine so far. Abs theoretically absorbs water but I find it only does so to the surface layer maybe a micron or so in.

Thank for the info guys. I have bought some ASA and will try with that.
