For ABS you should use VXL 90 if you don’t have an actively heated chamber. If you do have a heated chamber, you could also use VXL 111. Low-warp or warp-optimized ABS often has significantly lower glass transition temperature than raw ABS. For such ABS type, even VXL 70 could work.

Sorry, our R&D Team is heavily working on this, but it is rather difficult to get anything to stick to PP. At the moment, the adhesion is not good enough that we feel confident about releasing a support for PP.
You can use VXL 111 or VXL 130 for PC-ABS. VXL 111 for lower chamber temperatures (< 100 °C) and VXL 130 for higher chamber temperatures (up to 120 °C).
You should best use VXL 130 for supporting PEEK.
PA and all VXL materials will bond enormously strong. You need to choose depending on the type of PA. If your PA has printing temperatures above 250 °C, please use VXL 90 or VXL 111. If you use it in a chamber with chamber temperatures above 100 °C, please use it with VXL 130.
There are a lot of PC materials out there, some of which are heavily modified. We recommend using at least VXL 111 for printing with PC, because you need to go slightly higher in printing temperature than recommended for VXL 111. If you have a heated chamber that goes above 100 °C, please use VXL …
For ASA you should use VXL 90 if you don’t have an actively heated chamber (Raise3D, Ultimaker, BCN3D…). If you do have a heated chamber, you could also use VXL 111.
All of our VXL materials work with TPU. Please choose according to your printing environment and temperature requirements of the specific TPU. For open printers use VXL 70, for closed printers VXL 90. So far we did not come across a high temp TPU, where it would be necessary to use VXL 111 or even …
VXL 70 is the perfect choice for PETG in open printers. For higher melting PETGs where you need a closed printer, it might be better to go with VXL 90.
