Matter3D’s Performance PLA is FDA approved for food and beverage use, and is manufactured from pure NatureWorks 3D850 resin. This engineering-grade PLA has higher bulk crystallization and is developed for high-heat ( < 85 °C) and high-strength applications (stronger than most ABS materials). Performance PLA is ideal for functional jobs, where greater heat resistance and impact strength are desired. Compared to traditional PLA materials, Matter3D’s Performance PLA offers the ease of traditional PLA printing without sacrificing print quality, compatibility, reliability, or part-performance.
Any parts made with Matter3D’s Performance PLA can be heat treated (annealed) to improve the material's physical properties. To anneal a printed part, heat the part at 80 – 130 °C for up to 30 minutes by either submerging in hot water or by baking in an oven.
Matter3D’s Performance PLA is precision extruded and immediately vacuum-sealed before shipping with desiccant for protection against moisture. This product is available in 1 kg spools (2.2 lbs) and can also be ordered on a 1kg Master Spool. Matter3D always recommends drying your filaments before use.
This filament is ideal for use with practically all desktop 3D printers, such as Makerbot, Prusa, Ender, Flashforge, Anet, Creality, Lulzbot, Makergear, Ultimaker, or any other printer accepting 1.75 mm or 2.85 mm filament.
