High-Performance PLA is a Polylactic Acid. PLA is a thermoplastic polymer that is derived from renewable resources like cornstarch or sugar cane. Plastics that are derived from biomass (e.g. PLA) are known as “bioplastics.” PLA is a fully biodegradable thermoplastic polymer consisting of renewable raw materials.
High-Performance PLA is a bioplastic and makes for a great general-purpose filament with a smooth surface finish. This filament is very easy to print and is even biodegradable!
High-Performance PLA has minimal warping and shrinking compared with other materials, which makes it ideal for printing objects featuring flat surfaces and hard angles, or requiring tight tolerances for fit. PLA filament has been commonly used in situations that require prototypes, educational and architectural models, and artefact replicas built with ease and alacrity.
This filament is also capable of being treated with a variety of post-processing techniques, making it a popular choice for users looking to paint objects after they have been printed, such as costume props and figurines. The material comes on a heavy-duty plastic reel and vacuum-sealed to keep out any moisture.
