PLA-X³ is our industrial high performance PLA which features extreme performance on speed¹, mechanical properties² and high heat environments³. PLA-X³ is perfect for printing speeds of > 120mm/s, allowing you to be more efficient in the same time. Users who use a lot of ABS now have a bio-based alternative material with all the advantages of ABS and none of the disadvantages like shrinking and delamination.
Due to the composition of PLA-X³ the material is already highly crystalline after printing, which increases the stiffness of the material at higher temperatures. When you combine this with annealing the PLA-X³ the material reaches an HDT of 95°C+. Compared to other high temp. resistant PLA types PLA-X³ has the USP of negligible small shrinkage after annealing (the dimensional accuracy is superb).
PLA-X³ has been specifically engineered for industrial applications where you want an easy to print filament with high mechanical properties. Objects that are printed with PLA-X³ will have a semi matte finish which not only looks great but helps concealing layer lines.
