Matter3D’s Performance PLA - Matte is specially formulated using biodegradable materials to give our Performance PLA a great matte finish. The inclusion of the additive dulls the surface gloss that is so common to PLA, giving the Matte a great alternative aesthetic.
The Performance PLA - Matte line is formulated from the same great NatureWorks 3D850 resin. As a result, the Matte line enjoys the same engineering-grade status, including the higher bulk crystallization that was developed for high-heat (< 85 °C) and high-strength applications.
Performance PLA - Matte is ideal for functional jobs, where greater heat resistance and impact strength are desired. Compared to traditional PLA materials, Matter3D’s Performance PLA - Matte offers the ease of traditional PLA printing without sacrificing print quality, compatibility, reliability, or part-performance.
Any parts made with Matter3D’s Performance PLA can be heat treated (annealed) to improve the material's physical properties. To anneal a printed part, heat the part at 80 – 130 °C for up to 30 minutes by either submerging in hot water or by baking in an oven.
Matter3D’s Performance PLA is precision extruded and immediately vacuum-sealed before shipping with desiccant for protection against moisture. This product is available in 1 kg spools (2.2 lbs) and can also be ordered on a 1kg Master Spool. Matter3D always recommends drying your filaments before use.
This filament is ideal for use with practically all desktop 3D printers, such as Makerbot, Prusa, Ender, Flashforge, Anet, Creality, Lulzbot, Makergear, Ultimaker, or any other printer accepting 1.75 mm or 2.85 mm filament.
Proudly compounded and manufactured in Canada!
