3D Materials – the PLA filaments designed by Kimya

PLA is composed of corn starch or cane sugar. It is a natural and biodegradable material that offers an excellent alternative to polyethylene.

Compatible printers and the most common applications

These filaments are compatible with most FDM printers. They can, therefore, be printed with or without a heated plate. The shrinkage with this type of filament is very low during 3D printing. Translucid by nature, it is ideal for prototyping being free of mechanical constraints. It is therefore perfect for producing models, spare parts, medical equipment, and other single-use objects. Lastly, it is also highly valued for its aesthetic finish.

Points to note

Its main drawbacks are its high sensitivity to heat (deformation from 40°C) and lack of flexibility. We, therefore, recommend that you opt for PS filaments, especially if your application is exposed to heat.
