is a very nice 3D Print material, it´s non-toxic and has a no unpleasant
smell when you print with it. Because of its thermal characteristics it's easy
to get great prints. Filament from PrimaFilaments comes on a transparent spool
which makes it easy to see how much filament there are left on the spool.
Polylactic acid (PLA) is a bio-degradable
polymer that is produced from lactic acid, which can be fermented from crops
such as corn.
has a slight shine to its appearance when the print is done. PrimaSELECT™ PLA
also comes in a wide selection of beautiful and vivid colors with a nice
appearance that are based on the RAL color system which in turn guarantees that
you get the same color every time you order a new spool of filament.
With our new
we have succeeded in making a PLA that should suit most of your needs.
PrimaSELECT™ PLA is a so called modified PLA and is about 12 times
stronger than ordinary PLA, this is due to the impact modifier that has been
mixed together with the best raw materials that has been carefully selected.
feels a bit softer to the touch than regular PLA, it´s also more pliable which
makes it perfect for all printers including printers with a Bowden set up.
The results are not far from amazing and the material is extremely strong
with very good interlayer adhesion. This also opens up a new world for the use
of PLA. Until now PLA has been brittle and not very strong but with this
new product you can use it for applications that before you needed ABS for. Due
to the very low shrinkage and the fact that you don´t need a heated bed
PrimaSELECT™ PLA is very easy to use in all FDM/FFF printers. Warping is not
a factor you have to consider if you use PrimaSELECT™ PLA and it will
also not deform when your prints are done which is common among cheaper
materials. The characteristics also makes the filament less prone to absorbing
moister which is a huge leap forward and gives you a great benefit when it comes
to storage. If your printer is equipped with a heated bed we recommend that you
use a temperature setting of 40-60°C.
If you have a dual hot-end set up and are going to print with support we
recommend that you use PrimaSELECT™PVA that bonds well to our ABS and are
easy to remove, PrimaSELECT™PVA is even soluble in water.

are available in diameter sizes of 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm.
Our state of the art factory is equipped with the latest in laser measuring
technology to ensure that you will receive a spool of filament with a very
tight diameter and roundness tolerance. This in turn makes for a filament that
is compatible with most common printers on the market today.
