PLA Glitter

 PLA Glitter is a highly aesthetical PLA based filament with sparkling flakes inside. Slightly modified, the filament retains the typical features of PLA, but is tougher and less brittle. Polylactic acid is one of the most popular materials for 3D printing. Because of the translucency of PLA combined with the flakes, the colour saturation can be increased by increasing wall thickness.

PLA Glitter features:

  • Beautiful sparkling effect
  • Layers are not visible
  • Tougher and less brittle compared to regular PLA
  • Easy to print
  • Low warping
  • Limited smell
  • Not abrasive

Packaging:

PLA Glitter is available in nearly any type of  packaging and labelling. Ask our team to help you customizing your product.

Additional info:

Due to its low tendency to warp PLA Glitter can also be printed without a heated bed. If you have a heated bed the recommended temperature is ± 35-60˚C.
PLA Glitter can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers. It is recommended to purge the nozzle after printing, to prevent build up of flakes for the next print.

Storage:

Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
