The gray PLAyPHAb 1.75mm PLA/PHA Filament from 3D Printlife has been designed as a hybrid filament that is compatible with most 3D printers. Like PLA filament, PLAyPHAb is 100% biodegradable, yet is much less brittle. In terms of its pliability and ductile strength, it resembles ABS filament and maintains a dimensional accuracy of ± 0.03mm. PLAyPHAb filament has been designed using virgin resins and has a higher UV and impact resistance as compared to PLA, in addition to increased flexibility and layer adhesion. It is also less stringy than PLA during print-head travel and the post-processing of finished products, such as removing support structures or drilling holes, is greatly simplified and helps the filament to not crack. Finished products will have a glossy look.
Technically, this filament has a diameter of 1.75mm, a dimensional accuracy of ± 0.03mm, a recommended infill of > 30%, supports nozzle temperatures of 410 to 482°F, and does not require a heated print bed. Additionally, each spool is wound to help minimize crossovers and loopbacks that can lead to snags and snaps.
