Colorfabb developed its own unique blend of PLA/PHA which results in a tougher and less brittle PLA 3d printing filament. PHA (polyhydroxyalkanoate) is like PLA a bio-polyester, so our unique blend is still 100% biodegradeable and compostable. The addition of PHA makes the material a little more opaque than standard PLA, which results in very vibrant colors. It is printed at similar temperatures and extrusion settings to other PLA and can be printed on any printer that can print in regular PLA and prints smoothly.
In addition to the unique properties of the material, this filament is made to extremely high quality standards. Diameter is maintained at 2.85mm +/- 0.05mm with many operators reporting no measurable variation in diameter.
This listing is for opaque colorFabb colors containing pure PLA/PHA.
We also offer translucent colors, wood filled, metal filled, phosphorescent glow in the dark powder filled, and _XT PET copolyester filaments from colorFabb.
Each spool contains a minimum of 750g filament neatly wound onto a large diameter spool.
