Polylactic acid (PLA) is a biodegradable polymer that can be produced from lactic acid. Our premium PLA filament is fermented from corn crops. PLA yields excellent print results regardless of printing methods or extruders. Blueprinted PLA has a higher melting temperature that reduces stringing of filament for a cleaner result. Compatible with most 3D printers including MakerBot, Prusa i3 Mk2, Ultimakers and many more.

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.
