UltiMaker Tough PLA is a technical PLA (polylactic acid) material with a toughness similar to ABS. It is ideal for printing functional prototypes and tooling at larger sizes – without fear of delamination or warping. UltiMaker's Tough PLA offers the same safe and easy use as regular PLA.
Suitable for: Functional prototyping, tooling, manufacturing aids.
Not Suitable for: Food contact and in-vivo applications. Long term outdoor usage or applications where the printed part is exposed to temperatures higher than 60 °C.
UltiMaker Tough PLA is a technical PLA filament with toughness comparable to UltiMaker ABS. Ideal for reliably printing technical models at larger sizes, our Tough PLA offers the same safe and easy use as regular PLA.
With an impact strength similar and higher stiffness compared to UltiMaker ABS, Tough PLA is less brittle than regular PLA and gives a more matte surface finish quality. Heat resistance is similar to standard PLA filaments, so printed parts should not be exposed to temperatures above 60 °C.
More reliable than ABS for larger prints, with no delamination or warping. UltiMaker Tough PLA is also compatible with UltiMaker support materials (PVA and Breakaway) giving full geometric freedom when designing parts.
Reasons to choose UltiMaker Tough PLA over Standard PLA
UltiMaker has developed filaments with superior formulation for incredible print quality. And to optimize every print, there are Cura material profiles that can take care of everything or give you in total freedom.
For best results with Engineering filaments, consider the Advanced 3D Printing Kit for added reliability.
