PLA Thermochrome is a tough, easy to use high grade colour changing PLA type of filament. The dark grey colour will change to natural above 29˚C, but much faster above 33˚C or higher. Other features are according our slightly modified PLA product, so tougher and less brittle as a regular PLA. Due to a low shrinkage factor PLA will not deform after cooling. Poly Lactic Acid is a biodegradable plastic made from renewable natural resources and one of the most popular materials for 3D printing.
PLA Thermochrome features:
- Colour changing grey-natural > 33˚ Celsius
- Tougher and less brittle compared to regular PLA
- Easy to print at low temperature
- Low warping
- Limited smell
