Description

“Your PLA is ridiculous!”

– Cole Nielson, CEO of Orbital Composites

“The filament is noticeably stronger than normal PLA.”

– Johnny T. Nelson III, Electrical Engineer for Lockheed Martin

 

Engineering Grade Performance

Engineering Grade PLA is stronger than similar high-perfomance PLA’s. Strength and stiffness come together in an easy to print material for prototypes and functional parts. Starting at $29.95 and offered in 7 colors, Engineering Grade PLA provides exceptional value to printers.

Smoother Prints, Less Jams

Essentium Engineering Grade PLA is desigined to give you maximum printability. Easy to calibrate, Engineering Grade PLA reduces filament waste due to strict quality tolerances. Engineering Grade PLA provides you with smoother prints and less jams.

7 Vibrant Colors to Choose From

Personalize your prints with 7 different colors to choose from. With engineering grade performance, easy printability, and vibrant colors to select, many makers are moving to Essentium Engineering Grade PLA as their go to material.

Essentium PLA has been specifically designed for use in additive manufacturing. Our PLA formulation has superior tensile strength, elastic modulus and impact resistance in comparison to standard PLA. Furthermore, our PLA has a high heat deflection temperature stemming from its excellent heat-resistance and faster crystallization rates. This PLA prints with great detail at high speeds, less warping, and good bed adhesion. All of this means that you get the performance of an engineering grade material with the printability of standard PLA.

With the superior heat resistance and mechanical properties of our PLA, we provide strength and toughness you can rely on while still giving you the same ease of use as traditional PLA.
