The 3D filament Kimya PLA-R is a recycled and biodegradable polymer: this biosourced homopolymer can be obtained from corn starch. Polylactic acid (PLA) is a natural alternative to polyethylene. It is easy to print and is odorless. The 3D filament Kimya PLA-R can be used in industrial applications, notably packaging, and also in domestic applications: creation of everyday objects, toys, prototypes and for use in modeling. It offers the following properties:

  • Easy to print
  • Odorless
  • Glossy finish
  • ‰¥ 97% recycled materials (100% recycled materials“ PLA-R Natural)
  • Eligible to the EN 13432 and EN 14995 standards (PLA-R Natural)
  • Complies with the REACH standard
