Pulverized PLA - 4043D

  • Sale
  • Regular price $64.69

This pulverized PLA is what we use for making custom compounded materials. This PLA is grade 4043D from Natureworks, milled down to a small 60 mesh size. This smaller size allows for a more homogeneous mixture of additives without separation, as compared to a larger standard pellet size. Now you can add metal powder, carbon fiber, wood powder, talc, stone dust, etc. to create new filaments. 

This material works in the Filabot EX2 and the Filabot EX6, but not the Filabot Original.

* larger variance in tolerance +/- 0.08mm, not standard +/-0.05mm
** "Not Extrudable" means that plastic does not stay in filament from as it comes out of the nozzle, the system can melt and push the plastic out of the nozzle but will puddle. The melt flow of the polymer is too high.
