3D Printlife

PLAyPHAb 1.75mm Blue PLA/PHA Blend.

3D Printlife is committed to reducing the environmental impact of 3d printing. Our filaments and packaging are designed to be as eco-friendly as possible, while still providing a professional grade 3d printing experience. In addition for every spool sold 3D Printlife donates $1 to environmental charity to plant a tree, rejuvenating iconic forests throughout the United States.



Overview

3D Printlife's PLAyPHAb PLA/PHA blend has been formulated to create a PLA upgrade that makes standard PLA much less brittle. It is 100% biodegradable like PLA, but is comparable to ABS in terms of its pliability and ductile strength. PLAyPHAb has a higher UV and impact resistance than PLA, as well as increased flexibility, excellent layer adhesion, and it produces a glossy finish.

PLAyPHAb is less stringy than PLA during print-head travel, and removing support structures is almost trivial and can easily be removed by hand. PLAyPHAb's added pliability makes it much easier to post process and it is even possible to drill holes in certain parts, which is a tremendous upgrade as drilling through PLA tends to cause parts to crack.

In addition a portion of the proceeds from every spool of PLAyPHAb will be donated to environmental charity plant a tree. One spool equals one tree, rejuvenating iconic forests in key locations throughout the United States.

PLAyPHAb is wound onto a heavy recycled cardboard spool that is biodegradable, and bound with a recyclable tin end cap. The spool was designed for universal fit with most 3d printers in use worldwide. It includes both a cutout for viewing filament and dual puncture slots to secure filament when not in use. The flange can even rotate to in either direction to aid in securing the filament wherever it has been cut. Consumers can be confident that 3D Printlife's PLAyPHAb spool will be compatible with their printer.

PLAyPHAb is made in the USA with the highest quality materials and extrusion processes available. Every inch of PLAyPHAb filament is measured to ensure that it is within the strictest standards for quality, diameter, and ovality. PLAyPHAb uses high quality 100% virgin resins and colorants in filament manufacturing. Each spool of PLAyPHAb is carefully wound to exacting standards to minimizing crossovers and loopbacks that can lead to snags and snaps. Optimal print temp 210 - 250 with cooling fan, infill < 30%.
