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

PLA is available from stock in a large selection of bright colours of which you see a selection beneath.
For non stock colours a minimum of 40kg ± 10% is required.
PLA is available in nearly any type of packaging and labelling. Ask our team to help you customizing your product.
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.
Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
