- Technical information
- How to print
Tough PLA (Polylactic Acid) is engineered for its high impact resistance and strength, similar to those of ABS, in combination with the stiffness of PLA. This material shows excellent results in layer adhesion and is the perfect match for tooling or manufacturing aids where a high impact is needed. Tough PLA is an easy to print material with a very good surface quality.

Ideal for manufacturing stiff parts
Tough PLA is 50% stiffer than ABS, and has the right balance of toughness and stiffness.
A good balance between temperature resistance and toughness
Thanks to its toughness, Tough PLA becomes the ideal material for indestructible end-use parts, while counting on a lower heat resistance than PET-G.
