PLA-N, 2.85mm, Black, 1kg

3D Print Master Pro PLA-N by Filkemp 2.85mm, Black, 1kg


PLA-N is a next-generation biopolymer, engineered to exhibit superior mechanical properties to PLA while retaining the easy 3D printing experience PLA is well-known for.


Made by Filkemp, PLA-N can directly replace your use of PLA in applications where greater strength and toughness are desired.


We conducted a series of tests comparing PLA-N to PLA and ABS, in which we found PLA-N to be far superior to PLA. In our tests, we found PLA-N to exhibit a 27 to 27.5% torsional strength increase over regular PLA, and a 20% flexural strength increase with the 1.75mm filament. The 2.85mm filament exhibited a 12.5% flexural strength increase over regular PLA.


In conclusion, we found PLA-N to be far superior in flexural and torsional strength to standard PLA, and not far off ABS. PLA-N also has some desirable printing characteristics over ABS, such as less warping and less brittleness. This means that in some applications, PLA-N can be a very suitable replacement for ABS.


PLA-N is available as a 1kg, 2.2kg, 4.5kg or 8kg reel in 1.75mm or 2.85mm sizes. It’s also available in multiple colours, including yellow, black, white, green, blue, silver, and pastel orange. We keep a stock of all these colours.
