TOUGH PLA is engineered for its high impact and strength like an ABS and the stiffness of a PLA. The material shows excellent results in layer adhesion and is the perfect match for tooling or manufacturing aids where a high impact is needed. Tough PLA is a plug & play material and printable on a wide range of temperatures.
TOUGH PLA features:
- High impact and stiffness
- Prints like regular PLA – easy to print
- No warpage & no shrinkage
- Printable with various print temperatures
- Suitable for applications which needs to be strong
- Industrial touch and feel
