PLA High Strenght
The PLA is the most widely used material for 3D printing FFF all over the world. Its greatest value is, in our opinion, the ease with which it allows to get good printing results. However, it’s not definitely considered one of the best plastic materials to create objects and products … For this reason we believe it is important to provide it with better performance, without sacrificing the quality of its printing at all; so here’s the PLA HS (High Strength). This new Stick Filament, composed of PLA and mineral fillers, allows to have a considerable resistance to thermal stress and superior resistance to bending and torsion. In WWW.STICKFILAMENT.COM site you’ll find the technical specifications but now we want to tell you about a couple of tests with which we have been able to verify the exceptional qualities of this material.
TEST 1: The new Super PLA, developed with Keytech, shows its benefits: in the “proof of the washing machine” -exposure to high temperature- the usual PLA is clearly beated by the newcomer! It’s Heat Deflection Temperature is almost double of standard PLA and has the same value of a good quality of ABS.
TEST 2: In the second test, due to its superior thermal and mechanical resistance, we used it to 3d print a real injection mold, perfectly working, as you can see… We moulded with casting wax, casting polyurethane and also injecting polymers like Polypropylene and ABS. We injected this thermoplastics polymer with a standard injection machine!
The new PLA HS will be available soon on WWW.STICKFILAMENT.COM
