FiberSilk Metallic

Give your prints a metallic shine

The FIBERSILK METALLIC filament is the result of the joined and lasting effort of the Fiberlogy team. Their goal was to create a high-quality product combining a unique look, high durability and ease of printing. Fiberlogy’s FIBERSILK METALLIC offers a unique elegance of the printouts created with it. They are characterized by a silky metallic shine that brings out every smallest detail of a 3D model with all its bends and curves. Its aesthetic value is further enhanced by a rich palette of available colours. Fiberlogy have come up with a wide selection of vibrant colours for every user to find something that suits them just fine. The metallic finish makes it easy to hide the boundaries between layers making the entire print more uniform and expressive.

In addition to the visual advantage over traditional PLA, FIBERSILK METALLIC is also more durable. Thanks to the high adhesion of layers it can take heavy loads without cracking and then returns to its original shape. The filament is both easy and safe to print. For the best FIBERSILK METALLIC effects, we recommend setting high airflow during printing and reducing the printing speed.
