Tough PLA (Polylactic Acid) is engineered for its high impact resistance and strength, similar to those of ABS, in combination with the stiffness of PLA. This material shows excellent results in layer adhesion and is the perfect match for tooling or manufacturing aids where a high impact is needed. Tough PLA is an easy to print material with a very good surface quality.
Some suggested Applications:
- Manufacturing aids
- Manufacturing tools
- Functional prototyping
- End-use parts
- Alternative to ABS for large prints
- High impact and stiffness
- Easy to print
- Excellent surface quality
- Alternative to ABS
