Heat Resistant PLA
More than 50% higher heat deflection compared to standard PLA - No annealing necessary.
PLA is known to have a relatively low heat resistance compared to most other 3D printing materials. This makes it difficult to keep objects made from PLA in a hot environment such as a hot vehicle in the summer time for example without deforming. Some newer grades of PLA are able to be annealed to achieve higher heat resistant temperatures, although this process can be tricky for many users and the end result can significantly alter the dimensions of the object due to shrinking.
Our new heat resistant PLA maintains the easy printing properties of standard PLA but with an increased heat deflection temperature and without the need for annealing.
Depending in the geometry of the object, heat resistant PLA will only start softening / deforming around 85°C to 105°C compared to around 55°C for standard PLA.

- PLA can be printed both with and without a heated print bed, but if your desktop 3D printer does have a heated print bed it is recommended to set your print bed temperature to approximately 40°C to 60°C.
- Stick well to glass with glue stick as well as most printing surfaces on the market, including blue tape, PEI, BuildTak etc.
- PLA absorbs heat and so benefits from additional active cooling.
