Ultimaker PVA

Ultimaker PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) is a leading water-soluble support material for multi-extrusion 3D printing. It offers you freedom and convenience: to design complex model geometries that require supports, which dissolve away in tap water.

Reasons to choose Ultimaker PVA


Ultimaker PVA is at the heart of our market-leading dual extrusion 3D printing experience.

  • Reliable adhesion to PLA, Tough PLA, CPE, and Nylon

  • Non-toxic formula dissolves in regular tap water which can be disposed of safely

  • 100% biodegradable with no hazardous by-products

  • Good thermal stability gives better degradation resistance compared to other PVA filaments
