PLA, which stands for Polylactic Acid, is a type of filament used in 3D printing. What makes PLA unique is its composition. It is a recyclable, natural thermoplastic polyester that comes from renewable sources like corn starch or sugar cane. This filament is environmentally friendly because it's biodegradable, especially under specific conditions that involve high heat. Additionally, PLA boasts high tensile strength, meaning it's quite sturdy for various applications.
One of the notable advantages of traditional PLA is that it can be melted without degradation. When you melt PLA, it doesn't release any harmful toxins or fumes, making it a safe choice for 3D printing projects worldwide.
