3DFuel's Glass Filled PLA is a composite PLA filament made with real glass, giving it greater strength, toughness, and durability. Just like normal PLA, Glass Filled PLA is low-warp, low-odor, and doesn't need a heated bed. This means you can print functional, practical parts with the same ease of printing in PLA!
Glass Filled PLA by 3DFuel is a composite PLA made with real glass particles. Just like other PLA composites, Glass Filled PLA prints with same ease that normal PLA dose: low warp, low odor, and no heated bed required. However, Glass Filled PLA has been tested by 3DFuel to be:
- 1.4 times stronger than PLA at 57 MPa of max tensile strength.
- 1.3 times tougher than PLA with 34 J/m of Impact Toughness.
- 1.9 times more flexible than PLA with a tensile elongation of 3.4% before failure.
With Glass Filled PLA, you can print functional, practical parts without the hassle of printing in ABS or other tricky materials!
Simple, functional shelf support!
Glass Filled PLA prints well at 190-210 C. These are general starting points for Glass Filled PLA, actual temperatures will vary from one printer to another. A heated bed is not necessary, though if you have one, set it to 40 C.
