EconoFil™ 1KG REFILL Coil - PLA Filament - Red - 2.85mm
SKU: 5E3 FCARFPLA2RD
With the rapid growth of 3D printing across all industries, there is a massive amount of waste being generated in the industry.
Filaments.ca is proud to be the first 3D materials supplier in Canada to offer the new and innovative REFILL filament system!
With our REFILL filament system, filament is produced as a coil WITHOUT a spool and is designed to be fitted on a REUSABLE master spool. A master spool is a spool that splits into 2 pieces in order to accept a refill filament coil and then closed back together to form a complete & full filament spool. Master spools can be either purchased separately or 3D printed from our free supplied STL files.
The main advantages of using the REFILL system are:
- Reduced overall cost.
- Reduced shipping weight.
- Reduced packaging waste.
- Reduced empty spools accumulation & waste.
The Filaments.ca REFILL filament system is proudly produced under our popular EconoFil™ line, finally bringing together our company vision of both financially and environmentally sustainable 3D printing!
TO OUR FRIENDS IN THE USA AND AROUND THE WORLD:
No additives or modifiers! Naturally safe, naturally strong!
Why is having no additives or modifiers in a filament so important? Most PLA materials require the use of additives and impact modifiers to make them stronger and less brittle, but the use or composition of these additives is usually not fully disclosed... While polymers such as PLA may be a naturally safe and non-toxic, the additives may not be! This can translate into a filament that is not truly 100% biodegradable in addition to unknown effects of fumes/smell and overall safety. While this is usually not a concern with quality brand name filament, it is especially important to keep in mind when purchasing from unknown vendors on amazon, ebay etc. Our EcoTough PLA completely retains the natural safety and biodegradability of PLA while still being significantly stronger than others! As an added bonus to having a neat/non modified material, EcoTough PLA prints extremely smooth and consistent.

The Filaments.ca Brand Advantage:
The best selling PLA in Canada just got even better! Our new EcoTough PLA is a result of continually improving formulation based on feedback from our customers & the 3D printing community. Selling in such high volumes gives the Filaments.ca brand an edge over competitors by being able to analyze trends accurately and implement preventive actions to ensure the high quality of our product is maintained and improved.
All our products are stored in and shipped from our own fully controlled warehouse. Having full control over storage conditions, product packaging as well as maintaining a FIFO (First In First Out) storage system is crucial in keeping our 3d printing consumables fresh and in an optimal environment.
We're passing our production cost savings back to you!
Take advantage of our high volume manufacturing savings! Being Canada's largest supplier of 3D printing materials, we are able to bring down manufacturing & packaging costs while still maintaining high quality product standards & practices. And it's all thanks to you, our customers!
Get the best of both worlds; High performance at an affordable & sustainable price:
The EconoFil™ series of 3D filaments is truly a unique endeavor; Having accessible, high quality and affordable filament makes it easier for more people to enter into the amazing world of 3D printing. From the start, Filaments.ca's vision has been to bring Canadians unique and popular 3D printing consumables without breaking the bank. EconoFil™ is a testament that even after years in business, this commitment is still very much part of our core values. Seeing the immense popularity recently in budget friendly 3D printing consumables, we're staying true to our vision and giving our customers local access to true competitively priced filaments as seen in other countries like the USA where the market is significantly larger. In fact, our EconoFil™ line is one of the lowest priced 3D filament on the market, and that is no gimmick!
In addition, high volume users such as schools, libraries and businesses can now confidently expand their 3D printing departments by knowing that they are getting the best possible value for their 3D printing consumables budget!
EconoFil™ is the perfect "go-to" filament for everyday 3D printing & prototyping.

Our PLA filaments comply with the Restriction of Hazardous Substance (RoHS) directive and certified by SGS. Why is it important? It basically means the filaments are free from lead and other potentially hazardous substances including cadmium, mercury and chromium VI, among others.
|NET WEIGHT: 1 KG Coil (2.2 LB)|
|Made from 100% Grade A Virgin Raw Materials: We've seen first hand what prints from recycled filaments can look like, issues such as visible discoloration and other inconsistencies are common. From the very beginning, we've always guaranteed in writing that our filaments are made from pure grade virgin resin, giving you consistent high quality prints, beautiful look and feel.|
|Controlled using Non-Contact Laser Diameter Gauge: Rapid, precise and repeatable measurements to exact dimensional tolerances. Such gauges allow us to maintain consistent high quality filament by automatically stopping a production line the moment a non-conforming measurement is detected. So regardless of the 3D printer you are using, the consistently round diameters provide optimum flow through the extruder nozzle.|
|Continuous Line Production: Filament is extruded and spooled onto the reel in one continuous motion, producing tangle free spools that will unwind freely and smoothly from the start of the roll to the end.|
|New Non-Brittle Formula: Naturally brittle plastics such as PLA can now be used with confidence knowing that the filament will not break during a print job, while still inside the printer or just sitting in storage. Our new formula adjusts the degradability of the material for optimal strength and performance.|
|Ideal for High Resolution Prints: Our filaments will give you outstanding results even when printing at ultra high resolution using the latest 3D printers.|
|Tested on a Wide Range of 3D Printers: We repeatedly and accurately test our filaments in-house, but more importantly, we act based on feedback from thousands of customers all across Canada (Thank you!)|
|Compliant, Registered and Certified: Our filaments comply with the Restriction of Hazardous Substance (RoHS) directive and certified by SGS. Why is it important? It basically means the filaments are free from lead and other potentially hazardous substances including cadmium, mercury and chromium VI, among others.|
|Moisture Protected Packaging: Some 3D printing materials can be negatively affected by moisture, that's why every product made by us is packed inside an air tight package along with a moisture absorbing desiccant pack. Furthermore, we've taken an extra precautionary step and will also ship you 1 free resealable bag as well as 1 free extra desiccant pack for every spool that you order. Regardless of the type of filament or the manufacturer. This will enable you to easily keep your filaments at an optimal storage condition and free from dust or dirt AFTER opening the original packaging, so its always ready for your next print.|
|Produced According to a Standardized Color System: Every colored filament we manufacture is formulated according to a standard color system such as the Pantone Color Matching System. This is important in order to ensure consistent color shade with every batch as well as allowing us to produce specialty colors such as metallic and custom colors.|
