Description

What is PLA?

PLA stands for polylactic acid, which is a biodegradable and environmentally friendly 3D printing material. PLA is highly popular, because of the combination of ease of use, material strength and model accuracy. The greatest advantage of this material is that it can be printed using lower temperatures compared to other material options, and no heated print bed is required.

PLA Composition

PLA is created from 100% renewable sources. It is made by fermenting starch from, for example, corn, sugar cane or soya bean which makes the material fully biodegradable.

PLA Properties

PLA is known for being a strong and stiff, nonflexible material. Finished PLA prints are visually appealing and very accurate to the model source. In addition, PLA is a low-cost material that makes it suitable for prototyping, experimenting and testing.

PLA Application

PLA is used for accurate test and calibration models as well as visual models. PLA is not suitable for industrial use but it is perfect for prototypes and visual models due to its dimension accuracy, low cost, and biodegradability.
