With Ultrafuse® PLA Tough filaments, a highly versatile biocompatible and biobased material is made and specially developed for the needs of professional users. It effortlessly accommodates validated high-printing speeds up to 300mm/s*, without the need for any hardware adjustment while offering an exceptional surface finish and an impressive impact strength.
Moreover, it boasts a notably high success rate for large print jobs, ensuring a straightforward and cost-effective printing process. Ultrafuse® PLA Tough can be an alternative for ABS as it is more sustainable, strong and easy to print. As it is compatible with water-soluble BVOH support material, this biocompatible material, which exhibits an impressive impact strength - 720% higher than standard PLA - is the perfect solution for printing complex geometries for demanding, high-volume applications.
Furthermore, Ultrafuse® PLA Tough parts can be enhanced by annealing the part in a separate process step, which can increase the toughness up to 230% and its heat resistance by 257%.
With Ultrafuse® PLA Tough filaments, you can achieve sustainable, cost-and-time-saving production of large components at rapid speeds while maintaining impeccable surface quality. Elevate your designs and projects to PRO levels with a filament that guarantees outstanding
performance, reliability, and consistency.
*The stated printing speed of 300 mm/s is based on current validations. As equipment and technology continue to evolve, it is possible that even higher printing speeds may be attainable in the future.
