PLA is harder than ABS, melts at a lower temperature. It does exhibit higher friction than ABS, which allows it to stick easily to your print bed. Due to its adhesion, we highly recommended the use of extruder fans (most 3D Printers come standard with this).

Our PLA is biodegradable and undergoes degradation within 180 days in composting conditions (80% humidity and constant temperature exceeding 60°C) without producing toxic waste.

Our high-grade PLA is in the following products.

  • Coloured PLA+
  • Natural T-PLA (aka PLA Transparent)
  • Glow in the Dark PLA+
  • UV Sensitive PLA+ (discontinued)
  • Thermal PLA+
  • Wood PLA+
  • Metal fill PLA+ (discontinued)

We will continue to work on new colours and materials which will provide excellent results!

A PETA filter on the FDM
machine is recommended.

What is a PETA Filter?
