Prints like plastic, polishes like metal!
Stainless Steel PLA by Proto-pasta brings metal 3D printing home by combining the familiarity of PLA with finely ground stainless steel powder
Proto-pasta Stainless Steel PLA is a dense material that prints as easily as standard PLA but results in heavy prints that can be finished post-print to achieve amazing results. Perfect for jewelry, costumes, props, figurines, crafting, robots, and more!
NOTE: **This filament is more abrasive than standard PLA. Be prepared to replace your nozzle and do 1st layer adjustment. Try a wear resistant and/or larger diameter nozzle for increased service intervals.
In filament form, SSPLA is slightly more brittle than standard PLA, and requires extra care when handling.
In an unfinished form, prints look like cast metal. They can be left that way, or finished through a variety of methods to achieve different results:
STORAGE: One large resealable bag with slider + an extra desiccant pack are included with every spool. The bag and extra desiccant are a great way to safely store your filament spool when not in use. It keeps your filament bone dry & free from any dust or dirt particles, so it's always ready for your next print.

- In our experience, good results were achieved using standard PLA parameters with standard build surface preparation (blue tape, glue stick, or BuildTak). No heated bed required (if equipped, set to 60c).
- Process may be less consistent on smaller nozzles and/or bowden type machines.
- Possible to print with 0.4mm & 0.5mm nozzles, but best results achieved with 0.6mm nozzles
