This glow-in-the-dark filament contains glow powders that glow in the dark after absorbing light energy. 3D printer filament glow PLA has the best luminous effect than other colors of glow filament. We suggest exposing it to sunlight or UV light for around 30 minutes at least to get the best glow effect

Colors in back-order can take up to 5 business days to be in stock again.
PLA is the most popular and affordable material used in 3D printing. Due to its plant-based components, this Glow in the Dark 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 bio-plastic enables products to be produced with high bio-based content and a reduced carbon footprint. Our PLA+ offers a 75% reduction in carbon footprint compared to most traditional fossil-based plastics. PLA filament is produced from renewable feedstocks like sugarcane, corn, sugar beet, and cassava.
Our Glow in the Dark 3D filament is a great first material to use as you are learning about 3D printing because it is easy to print, very inexpensive, and creates parts that can be used for a wide variety of applications.
How does this work?
To purchase this 3kg Glow in the Dark filament pack, you will have to pick a minimum of 3 rolls.
Glow in the Dark PLA+ Filament Tips:
- Using a fan that cools the 3D-printed part from all directions is highly recommended. To improve the cooling airflow, there are many popular 3D printers that have community-designed attachments that can be printed and retrofitted onto your machine.
- To create strong parts that are less likely to break, increase the number of perimeter outlines for your PLA filament prints, which will create a strong bond between each layer.
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, Glow in the Dark 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.
