PLA (polylactide) is a biodegradable and biocompatible 3D plastic derived from vegetable raw materials. Unlike ABS it is not
In the field of home 3D printing PLA plastic (polylactic acid, a structural unit of which is lactic acid) is a recognized leader. Despite the fact that PLA is quite often compared to ABS, their characteristics differ markedly.
One of the main distinguishing features of PLA is that it is easy to print. PLA has a lower printing temperature than ABS. PLA is minimally deformed when the temperature changes unlike ABS. Another significant advantage of PLA-plastic - no unpleasant smell during the printing process.
PLA is the most environmentally friendly plastic. Natural raw materials composed of PLA plastic allows threats to human health to use it for different purposes.
In some cases it is necessary to use PLA plastic?
In comparison with other types of filaments for 3D printer PLA is fragile, so avoid its use in the manufacture of items which can be bent, twisted or re-Packed, for example, phones, toys with high wear, or handles for tools. Also, don't use PLA for print products, which are subsequently subjected to high temperatures, as the PLA tends to deform at a temperature of 60 ° C or higher. For all other applications PLA is perfect. Usually the plastic used to print toys with a low level of wear, parts, prototypes and containers.
Recommended print settings for PLA Bestfilament:
Print speed: 40-60 mm/s
Air Cooling: Yes
Shrinkage printing: Minor
Solvents: Dichloromethane, Dichloroethane
Operating temperature: -20°C to +40°C
Advice from Bestfilament:
- The softening temperature of PLA plastic about 50 degrees, so when there is insufficient cooling of a thermal barrier possible softening of the plastic and formation of the tube. To avoid this, provide maximum airflow of the radiator of a thermal barrier.
- Use a foam filter with some oil (machine or vegetable) when printing PLA plastic to prevent the formation of the tube.
- PLA plastic retains plasticity for some time after cooling, which is useful, for example, to build composite models. Slightly heat the parts before Assembly to make them easier to connect.
