DURABIO™ developed for 3D FFF/FDM printing is a transparent bio-based engineering material developed by Mitsubishi Chemical. DURABIO™ is a transparent polymer with a high transparency similar to PMMA but with a much better impact behavior and improved heat resistance. DURABIO™ beats the well-known inferior properties of PC in regards to scratch resistance, hardness and chemical resistance. That is why DURABIO™ closes the gap between PC and PMMA.

DURABIO™  features:

• Excellent optical and mechanical properties
• Superb UV-resistance
• Ductility, with strong impact resistance
• High heat resistance
• Scratch resistance
• Chemical inertness
• Biobased BPA free
• Easy to print

DURABIO™ is available from stock in:



DURABIO™ is available in the original packaging of Mitsubishi Chemical.

Additional info:

DURABIO™ is particularly designed for applications requiring exceptional visual appearance with scratch and impact resistance as well as chemical inertness.


In order to prevent moisture pick up and contamination, supplied packaging should be kept closed and undamaged. For the same reason, partially used bags should be sealed before re-storage. Allow the material that has been stored elsewhere to adapt to the temperature in the processing room while keeping the bag closed.
