Why PLA?

PLA (Poly Lactic Acid) is an Eco friendly, biodegradable plastic which prints without the toxic fumes given off by ABS and other petroleum based products. We sell high quality, affordable PLA designed for our FDM 3D printers and others that use 1.75mm filament. 

Usage

PLA is an easy to use, low shrinkage material. This reduces warping and enables the printing of shapes that would be more difficult with other materials. Whilst it does not require a heated build plate, it does benefit from one operating at low temperatures of around 60°C. For sharp, detailed prints a cooling fan is necessary. After 3D printing you can finish your model by sanding. PLA can also be painted with acrylic paints.

Storage

All 3D printer filament should ideally be stored in an airtight container with moisture absorbing silica gel. It is hydroscopic which means that it will absorb water from the surrounding air that will cause prints to fail.

Safety

Material is not produced in a controlled food-safe environment. As such, we do not recommend to use it in extended direct contact with food, especially not liquids.

Delivery

Depending on the product type and stock levels, delivery can take between 7 and 30 days.
