The first in the line of unique Caverna build materials from Infinite, Caverna PP (a polypropylene filament) has a water-soluble phase that dissolves to create a co-continuous, microporous morphology.
By offering the ability to create parts that have an ultrafine, highly controlled network of tiny pores, all Caverna filaments — each of which will have a different thermoplastic base — will make new applications possible.
By melt processing two polymers at near-equal parts, we’re able to create a filament with a co-continuous morphology — which is a consistent distribution of interconnected channels.
Caverna is a unique blend of two immiscible polymers: a soluble material to be removed through dissolution, and an insoluble build material to remain.
After dissolution, the water-soluble phase leaves behind a cave-like network of interconnected channels inside the build material, making it light, soft, and porous.
