Red Tough PLA plastic 0.75kg. 2.85mm diameter and approximately 90m long.
Ultimaker Tough PLA is a technical PLA filament with toughness comparable to Ultimaker ABS. Ideal for reliably printing technical models at larger sizes, our Tough PLA offers the same safe and easy use as regular PLA.
Reasons to choose Ultimaker PLA Tough
With an impact strength similar and higher stiffness compared to Ultimaker ABS, Tough PLA is less brittle than regular PLA and gives a more matte surface finish quality. Heat resistance is similar to standard PLA filaments, so printed parts should not be exposed to temperatures above 60 °C. More reliable than ABS for larger prints, with no delamination or warping. Ultimaker Tough PLA is also compatible with Ultimaker support materials (PVA and Breakaway) giving full geometric freedom when designing parts.
Great roundness and consistency
PLA is Poly-Lactic-Acid, a biodegradable polymer that has a low melting point.
Ultimaker filaments have endlessly been tested to ensure they are up to the job: only the best make the grade. Prints come as intended time and time again. It also works perfectly with Cura material profiles.
Choosing the right material is critical to the success of your 3D print. Ultimaker's open filament system lets you print with any 2.85 mm filament, and print profiles from the Ultimaker Marketplace streamline print preparation and maximize your print success rate.Find out more
