New for 2018, Ultimaker Tough PLA is a high-performance PLA (polylactic acid) that’s biodegradable and BPA free. It is stronger and tougher than regular PLA, with very similar mechanical properties to ABS but with faster print speeds.
Specially formulated for high rigidity and tensile strength, Ultimaker Tough PLA is dimensionally stable and is an excellent choice for 3D printing high-impact models and parts. With it, you can print durable, impact resistant models without worrying about your models warping or deforming during the print process.
Designed for functional prototyping, tooling and manufacturing aids, Ultimaker Tough PLA is more reliable than Ultimaker ABS when printing large models and it is stiffer too. It prints with a matte finish and gives off a ‘sweet’ smell during extrusion.
Ultimaker Tough PLA is also compatible with Ultimaker PVA and Breakaway support systems, so it offers full geometric freedom for designers. The tensile strength at break is rated at 37 MPa and the elongation at break is rated at 3.1 per cent. So, this is an exceptionally strong and rigid filament. To find out more about it, contact us or read the technical data sheet attached in the ‘downloads’ tab above.
Ultimaker started life out in the Netherlands. Founded in 2011, they are an old head relatively speaking in the world of desktop 3D printing. Their quest to innovate and create the best 3D printers has led to this point: they are now one of the world’s leading desktop 3D printer manufacturers in both uptake and reputation.
The popularity of the Ultimaker brand is also down to proven use cases. Industries benefitting from an Ultimaker include aerospace, architecture, art, automotive, engineering, fashion, jewellery, manufacturing, medicine, product design and education. Ultimaker is also one of the few brands with a committed DIY fan base. These ‘Makers’ are ambassadors who live and breathe everything Ultimaker. You can find them on forums.
Wherever reliability, uptime and quality is desired in a desktop 3D printer, we recommend Ultimaker because we know they work. With an Ultimaker you can make accurate, industrial-grade parts, time and again.
We are an authorised Ultimaker reseller which means we are authorised by Ultimaker to sell and support their 3D printers and all related products. We sell the whole Ultimaker 3D printer range and can recommend the best model for your use case. We also sell supplies, materials, and spares to keep your 3D printing game strong.
