Poly Lactic Acid [PLA]


Polylactic acid (PLA) (is derived from corn and is biodegradable) is another well-spread material among 3D printing enthusiasts. It is a biodegradable thermoplastic that is derived from renewable resources.

As a result PLA materials are more environmentally friendly among other plastic materials. The other great feature of PLA is its biocompatibility with a human body.

The structure of PLA is harder than the one of ABS and material melts at 180 – 220°C which is lower than ABS. PLA glass transition temperature is between 60 – 65 ° C, so PLA together with ABS could be some good options for any of your projects.
