PLA (Polylactic Acid) Filament

    Technical information:

    PLA Filament (Polylactic Acid) is a biodegradable plastic coming from renewable organic resources (corn starch or sugarcane). PLA Filament is recyclable but can also be biological decomposed in composting plants.
    Polylactic acid is a polyester that is built from several lactic acid units. It is colourless and transparent. PLA has a density of about 1.25 kg/cm3. The glass temperature is typically around 50 °C and it as a melting temperature between 170 and 220 °C. The decomposing temperature is roughly 250 °C. Polymers made of lactic acid are flammable.

    The 3D4MAKERS has unique properties because it does not come into contact with water during the production process and is directly packaged in a vacuum packaging. These properties make the 3D4MAKERS particularly suitable for usage in FDM and FFF 3D printers. The material has an excellent adhesion between layers which results in great improvement of the impact resistance, strength, durability and the printing process.

    The PLA Filament produced by 3D4MAKERS meets the European regulations EC No. 1935/2004, EC No. 2023/2006 and EC No. 10/2011 concerning plastic materials and articles coming into contact with food. The colorants used by 3D4MAKERS to colour the Filament also meet these European regulations.

    To get the best results while printing we advise you to keep the 3D printer in a room where there is hardly any draft and/or temperature fluctuations. Keep the 3D printer out of the sun. This cannot be a room where people sleep.

    When the 3D printer is not being used it is important to keep the 3D4MAKERS PLA Filament in a bag and stored in a cool, dry and dark place until it is used again.
