Features and Benefits of colorFabb PLA Filament

LW-PLA

LW-PLA is the first 3D printing filament of its kind. This material uses active foaming technology to achieve lightweight, low-density printed parts. At around 230°C LW-PLA starts foaming and increases its volume by nearly three times. 

  • Achieve lightweight parts by decreasing the material flow by 60%.
  • Use the expanding properties to reduce print time by printing big layer heights or extra thick materials.
  • Fine-tuning and optimization are required to make the most of your LW-PLA use.
  • Diameter tolerance: ± 0.1 mm
  • Non-Activitated Density: 1.210-1.430 g/cm-3 
  • Maximum Activitated Density: 0.403 – 0.476 g/cm-3
  • Glass transition temperature: 55°C

PLA Economy

For the maker who needs quality at an affordable price, PLA Economy offers the best value for your money. It’s an ideal filament for large volume and small series production, with the guaranteed colorFabb quality.

  • Available on XL and larger spools only
  • Added impact modifer makes PLA Economy tougher than your average PLA filament
  • Diameter tolerance: ± 0.1 mm
  • Density: 1.2-1.3 g/cm3
  • Glass transition temperature: 55°C

PLA/PHA

This unique blend of PLA/PHA 3D printer filament is tougher and less brittle than the competition. As a bio-polyester, colorFabb PLA filament is 100% biodegradable. This filament is a reliable and high-quality choice for everyday use.

  • 100% biodegradable
  • Unique blend of two bioplastics: PLA and PHA
  • Diameter tolerance: ± 0.05 mm
  • Density: 1.210-1.430 g/cm-3
  • Glass transition temperature: 55°C

PLA Semi Matte

PLA Semi Matte is a more stunning, less brittle PLA filament. Only for those who are looking to make their prints look super cool. Any architect’s dream for a neutral, non-glossy filament.

  • Diameter tolerance: ± 0.05 mm
  • Density: 1.210-1.430 g/cm-3
  • Glass transition temperature: 55°C
