PLA, or Poly Lactic Acid, is an organic material, mainly made of cornstarch and sugarcane. It gives a smooth and shiny appearance to the prints, which is much appreciated by products designers and architects. PLA features a far lower melting point that makes the material safer and healthier to use-perfect for education. Also it allows for finer details and is subject to fewer errors when printing. You will find everything you need through our wide range of top performing PLA filaments across a number of recognised brands.
