Tough PLA

TOUGH PLA is engineered for its high impact and strength like an ABS and the stiffness of a PLA. The material shows excellent results in layer adhesion and is the perfect match for tooling or manufacturing aids where a high impact is needed. Tough PLA is a plug & play material and printable on a wide range of temperatures.

Tough PLA features:

  • High impact and stiffness
  • Prints like regular PLA – easy to print
  • No warpage & no shrinkage
  • Printable with various print temperatures
  • Suitable for applications which needs to be strong
  • Industrial touch and feel
