RS 3D Printer Filament TPLA

TPLA is a tough, easy to use high grade colour changing PLA type of filament. The dark grey colour will change to natural above 29゚C, but much faster above 33゚C or higher. Other features are according our slightly modified PLA product, so tougher and less brittle as a regular PLA. 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

Colour changing grey-natural >33゚C
Tougher and less brittle compared to regular PLA
Easy to print at low temperature
Low warping
Limited smell

Once you’ve purchased your filament it’s 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 will quickly reach boiling point, spoiling the print. The use of desiccant dehumidifiers to absorb the moisture is highly recommend


Due to its low tendency to warp TPLA can also be printed without a heated bed. If you have a heated bed the recommended temperature is ±35-60゚C.
TPLA can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers
