PLA

 PLA is a tough, easy to use high-grade PLA type of filament, ideal for 3D printing. Slightly modified, the filament retains the typical features of PLA, but makes it tougher and less brittle. 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 features:

  • Tougher and less brittle compared to regular PLA
  • Easy to print at low temperature
  • Low warping
  • Biodegradable
  • Limited smell

Packaging:

PLA 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 can also be printed without a heated bed. If you have a heated bed the recommended temperature is ± 35-60˚C.
PLA can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.

Storage:

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