APLA™ Advanced PLA Filament

from 9.99

Algix 3D has chosen 3D Printlife to be the sole manufacturer of their unique and sustainable filaments.  We are thrilled to integrate their line of high performance, sustainable materials into our portfolio as we work together to improve sustainability in 3d printing.

Manufactured with NatureWorks’ Ingeo 3D860, Advanced PLA™ (APLA) rivals ABS in terms of impact and heat performance and can be used for home and industrial printing of durable parts. To realize heat resistance and optimum impact strength that approximates ABS in 3D applications, a brief 10 to 15-minute period of annealing at temperatures between 212° and 239°F (100° and 115°C) results in best performance.  Advanced PLA™ filament is made from an improved PLA polymer specifically designed for 3D printing. Compared to conventional PLA and ABS, Advanced PLA™ has improved heat deflection, stiffness, strength, adhesion properties and 3D print quality. When using Advanced PLA™, you can expect: low odor, higher print detail/resolution, excellent first layer adhesion, improved adhesion between layers, reduced warping, curling and failed prints.

3D Printing Tips

  • This filament will run best at an extrusion temperature of 195°C - 215°C (2.85mm filament usually prints at the higher end of this range).
  • Always print in an area with good airflow and minimal temperature fluctuations.
  • Advanced PLA™ filament adheres well to glass or plastic and does not require a heated build plate like ABS filament. 
  • If your printer does have a heated build plate, we do advise using it for larger prints set at a temperature of 50°C, and if your machine has a fan, we recommend using it for most prints.
  • It is recommended to use high water content hairspray (as opposed to high ethyl alcohol content) lightly sprayed on the surface and allowed to dry before starting prints to ensure the first layer of the print sticks to the plate.
