Dewang 1.75mm PLA 3D Printer Filament Black - 1kg Spool (2.2 lbs) -
Dimensional Accuracy +/- 0.05mm
PLA is created from processing any number of plant products
including corn, potatoes or sugar-beets.
PLA is considered a more 'earth friendly' plastic compared to
petroleum based ABS. However, it will not bio-degrade in your
backyard or home compost pile.
PLA is very strong, and more rigid than ABS, it is occasionally
more difficult to work with in complicated interlocking assemblies
and pin-joints. The finished objects will generally have a glossier
look and feel than ABS. With a little more work, PLA can also be
sanded and machined.
The lower melting temperature of PLA makes it unsuitable for many
applications as even parts left in a hot car can droop and deform.
PLA is a very nice material, it's non-toxic and has a pleasant
smell when printing. Because of its thermal characteristics it's
easy to get great prints.
Polylactic acid (PLA) is a bio-degradable polymer that can be
produced from lactic acid, which can be fermented from crops such
as maize. It is harder than ABS, melts at a lower temperature
(around 180°C to 220°C), and has a glass transition temperature
between 60-65 °C.
