About PLA Filament

What is PLA 3D printer filament?

PLA filament is a thermoplastic polymer made strictly from renewable resources. Poly Lactic Acid (PLA), is generated from biodegradable material like cornstarch, potato starch, sugarcane and tapioca roots, and has a smooth, shiny appearance. PLA filament is popular for its ease of use, natural ability to break down and superior print detail capabilities.

Advantages of PLA filament

PLA filament is the most common type of 3D printer filament used.

  • PLA 3D printer filament is the most environment-friendly 3D filament solution.
  • Because of its low toxicity, PLA filament is a very popular choice in the 3D printing community.
