Performance PLA

High Heat, High Impact Blend

Performance Polylactic Acid (PLA) filament is the most common 3D printing material used in the 3D printing industry today. The premium bioplastic product is made from renewable natural resources and is biodegradable. This blend is made with a high heat, high impact grade of PLA developed for applications typically used with materials like ABS, while retaining it biodegradability. This resin has improved heat resistance and exhibits faster crystallization.

Features & Benefits

  • Bio-friendly
  • Easy to use
  • Minimal warping and shrinking
  • Can be painted

Typical advantages of using this blend over Standard PLA

  • Significant heat resistance improvement
  • Significant impact resistance improvement
  • Higher detail or resolution of prints
  • Lower odor
  • Improved layer adhesion
  • Reduced warping, curling, deforming

Heat Deflection Temperature: Measure of a polymer’s ability to bear a given load at elevated
temperatures; the temperature at which it deforms.
Flexural Modulus: Pressure required to start the bending; stiffness; the tendency of the material to bend.
Flexural Strength: pressure required before a certain degree of deformation; degree of deformation at which the test fails.
Tensile Yield Strength: maximum stress before breaking when being stretched from both ends.
