RS Pro 3D Printer Filament PLA 2.85 mm 2.3 Kg

PLA is a tough, easy to use high grade PLA type of filament, ideal for 3D printing. Slightly modified, the filament retains the typical features of PLA, but makes it tougher and less brittle. Due, to a low shrinkage factor PLA will not deform after cooling. Poly Lactic Acid is a biodegradable plastic made from renewable natural resources and one of the most popular materials for 3D printing

Tougher and less brittle compared to regular PLA
Easy to print at low temperature
Low warping
Biodegradable
Limited smell

Once you have purchased your filament, it is important to store it correctly to maintain its quality. Over time the plastic will absorb moisture from the air, creating small water bubbles in the filament. These bubbles when heated in the extruder nozzle quickly reach boiling point, spoiling the print. The use of desiccant dehumidifiers to absorb the moisture is highly recommended

Note

Due to its low tendency to warp PLA can also be printed without a heated bed. With a heated bed, the recommended temperature is ± 35-60˚C.
PLA can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.
Storage: Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. Enhances the shelf life significantly
