PLA is the most popular and affordable material used in 3D printing. Due to its plant-based components, this odorless PLA+ filament is an eco-friendly thermoplastic. You will notice a glossy type finishing to your 3D printed project. Due to its ease of use, PLA+ filament is considered to go-to 3D printing filament for household prints.
PLA Filament Applications & Uses
PLA filament properties make it suitable for the manufacture of bottles, plastic film, and biodegradable medical devices, such as screws, pins, plates, and rods. These applications should be designed to biodegrade within 6 to 12 months.
There are exceptions when the material it’s not exposed to environmental factors. For example, with no extra heat and standard water, PLA should last decades in water. PLA filament requires special conditions to break down or degrade. However, many people use PLA in aquariums, bathtubs, or pools without problems.
In this case, our Color Change PLA+ Filament does not break down completely unless the water temperature is sustained above 50°C with the presence of particular enzymes for a biological reaction. This process could have a duration of about 6 months for it to decompose.
Also, PLA filament can be used as a shrink-wrap material since it constricts under heat. This is why we wouldn’t recommend printing a plastic cup or coffee mag that would contain hot liquids.
