PLA (Polylactic acid) is the universal material for all 3D printer. It is easy to print on virtually any 3D printer and by far the most popular in the consumer market for FDM termoplastics. PLA can be printed at low temperatures and with PrintaFix or PrintaStick there is no need for a heated printbed to prevent warping. It has a good interlayer adhesion and low shrinkage and a slight shine to its appearance when the print is done. We recommend it for all decorative elements, prototypes for haptics or test prints.
PLA is plant based and therefor biodegradable. This also means that is not the
strongest material when it comes to stiffness, heat resistance or mechanical properties. Nethertheless for its recommended purposes it does the trick. PrintaMent PLA is available in a wide range of colours to satisfy every need.
AprintaPro filaments are produced 100% in Europe. We know our raw material suppliers and can keep a close eye on the quality we get. Cheaper filament manufacturers often don’t care and then small particles contaminate the filament. These particles will then either be visible in your 3D print or worse clog your nozzle. We only use high quality raw materials for our PLA and colouring pigments so your prints won’t dull during the print or after you put your 3D print on display. We set ourselfs high standards and only accept minimal tolerances in the filament diameter.Recommended printsettings for PLA

All PrintaMent Filaments are produced in Europe using modern production standards: During production, the latest in laser measuring technology is used to ensure that you will receive a spool of filament with a very tight diameter and roundness tolerance. Most materials offer a colourful selection of many beautiful colours which gives you a lot of options to perfect and individualize prints. PrintaMent is available in the diameters 1.75mm and 2.85mm and comes on a transparent spool which makes it easy to see how much filament is left on the reel. The PrintaMent Box has an indication window on how much Filament is left on the reel. Store PrintaMent cool and dry away from UV light to enhance the shelf life.
