Heat Treat for Great Performance!

PLA and HTPLA are great for many applications, just exactly as they're printed! But once they're stored above 50C, they start to break down. Luckily, the HT is for Heat Treat! Or is it High Temp? Either way, it spells a huge improvement (up to three times) to the part's thermal stability!

Simply place your printed part in your oven for a few minutes (larger parts will need longer times) at 100 - 120C (200 - 250F), and the material will crystallize and become much stiffer. Keep in mind this may warp some architectures of printed parts, so experimentation is required. Best results are with flat and/or supported parts with 100% infill.

HTPLA could be the solution to your printing needs!
