A strong PLA with excellent impact resistance
Tough PLA filament has been specially-engineered to provide impact resistance akin to ABS whilst retaining the printability of PLA.
PLA Tough has superior Charpy Impact (Kj/m2) - a high strain-rate test as per ISO 179 - versus other strong PLA / PLA+ / PLA filaments on the market.
PLA Tough exhibits excellent results in layer adhesion and the benefits of strength and durability makes it highly-suited manufacturing aids or even end-use parts where impact resistance is needed beyond a regular PLA.
The mechanical properties of the tough PLA filament enables efficient machinability for post-processing work such as CNC, drilling and sanding.
PLA Tough retains beneficial properties of our (r)PLA such as low warp and low shrinkage, and can be printed at temperatures akin to regular PLA i.e., 210±10˚C.
Overall, PLA Tough filament is ideal for applications requiring a strong PLA for tough, industrial applications.
Recommended printing temperature: 210±10°C
Recommended heated bed temperature: ≥60°C
