Description Technical Specs
PLA is one of the most commonly used materials in 3D printing today. It is biodegradable, easy to use, and provides great surface finish and print quality. Good quality materials are key to successful printing. The Platinum Series PLA has been thoroughly tested by Airwolf 3D engineers.

PLA is a thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from corn starch, and contains no harmful properties. Platinum Series PLA filament comes on a sturdy plastic spool, in a thick sealed package with desiccant.

Sold in 1kg (2.2lb) spools
  • Using PLA as dissolvable support

    PLA can be used as a dissolvable support material for dual extrusion models. It works well as a support material for ABS and has been tested on small parts with PET filaments. However, PLA cannot be used as support for higher temperature materials including PC-ABS, Nylons, or Polycarbonate.

    Order the clear transparent filament when intending to use PLA for soluble support as the colored materials take much longer to dissolve. PLA can be dissolved in a 10-20% concentrated lye bath (sodium hydroxide), including some common drain clog removers. A heated bath is recommended as dissolving PLA at room temperature may take several hours.
