PLA-X³ is our industrial high-performance PLA which features extreme performance on speed, mechanical properties and high heat environments. 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 pellets 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

Additional information

*As PLA materials crystallize, it is advised to either have an agitated dryer, or dry at a lower temperature for a
longer period. This avoids that the pellets stick to each other during drying.


Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
