AquaTek™ X1 Advanced USM Universal Support Material

Our AquaTek™ X1 Advanced USM Universal Support Material is an all-new, highly advanced universal water soluble support formulated specifically for printing complicated parts. AquaTek™ X1 Advanced USM is readily dissolved in warm water and has excellent adhesion to the broadest range of materials, including our popular advanced composites like CarbonX™ Carbon Fiber Nylons and FibreX™ Glass Fiber Nylons.

Benefits of AquaTek™ X1 Advanced USM:

  • Readily soluble in warm water
  • Eco-friendly and safe to dispose in house or office drains
  • Ideal support material for the widest array of materials, including many which are infamous for being difficult to support!
  • Low moisture absorption while exposed to the air during printing, getting less tacky over time than similar support materials

Compatible Materials:

  • AquaTek™ X1 Advanced USM really is our most compatible support material, it works excellent with all the following and more:
  • PLA, ABS, ASA, PETG, Nylons, and flexible filaments like TPC, TPU, and COPE.
  • This includes all of our famous composite variants of these grades, such as carbon fiber, glass fiber, and ESD-safe.

Recommended Support Removal Techniques:

Break away excess support material that’s easily accessible. This reduces dissolution time (more support material = a longer time to dissolve).

Submerge the part in warm water. Hot tap water is typically 38-49°C, which is more than adequate for dissolving AquaTek™ X1 Advanced USM. Please be safe with hot water!

Agitating and stirring the water reduces dissolution time further, either with mechanical agitation or a sonic cleaning bath system. Re-heat or replace the warm water as it cools off for as long as you still see support material un-dissolved.

Residue is ecologically safe and can be disposed of down a home or office drain. Rinse thoroughly with fresh, warm water.
