Filament Factory Canada is a top-tier Canadian 3D printing filament manufacturer focusing on true pure, non-toxic, food safe and recyclable materials based on unique polymer building block configuration research.

About TruePure PLA+

A classic PLA reconfigured for strength, rigidity and food grade peace of mind! This PLA is very easy to use and the perfect material for everyday 3D printing at home, school or in the office. Made from 100% premium food grade raw materials and colourants. Clean extrusion and storage environments. Produces strong, accurate, clean, reliable and repeatable results. +/- 0.02mm or less average diameter variation & roundness.

  • Easy to 3D print.
  • Polymer blocks configured to be stronger & non-brittle.
  • Rigid with high tensile strength.
  • Precise details.
  • Opaque (non transparent) colour
  • Strong layer bonding.
  • Good adhesion to build plate.
  • Low warping.
  • Very low odor
  • 100% Cardboard recyclable spool.
  • Scraps accepted back for recycling.
 Made in Canada 3D Printing Filaments
Manufactured in our Mississauga, Ontario facility using premium quality materials and extrusion equipment. Consistent diameter monitoring using multi axis laser micrometers. Every batch is traceable and tested for quality assurance. Spools are dried before packaging and ready to use upon opening.

Printing Guideline

Nozzle size: ≥ 0.15mm Print Speed: 40 - 60 mm/s Flow Rate: ± 100%
Print Temp.: 190 - 210° C Fan: 50 - 100% Retraction: ± 5mm
Build Plate Temp: 40 - 60° C Layer Height: ≥ 0.1mm Difficulty: Easy

The above settings should work for most printers, however they are meant as a guidance and starting point only. Do feel free to experiment outside these ranges according to your specific printer. There are many different types of printers, hot-ends and printer configurations, it is therefore not possible to provide an overall one-size-fits-all setting. If stringing occurs, please try lowering your printing temperature and/or dry the material in a dehydrator (50°C for 2 to 4 hours)

3D filaments Canada
5 Meters Extra - FREE
Every spool is slightly over-filled by at least 5 additional meters of filament. This can be used to calibrate your print settings for the spool without tapping into the 1KG net weight. Or as a safety net/ reserve in case some of your prints end up requiring a bit more filament than originally calculated.

 Important notes to consider regarding Food Safety in FDM 3D Printing:

While we have taken every measure to ensure that this product is made from food safe materials and handled in a way that complies with food safety standards, there are other processes and risks that are inherent to 3D printing which are beyond our control. If your parts will be used in food applications, special care should be taken to ensure that the migration of harmful substances from your printing environment is fully controlled based on the following information:

  • Your 3D printer is comprised of several components which come into contact with the filament prior to extrusion, such as the gears, tube, hot-end assembly and nozzle. Please keep in mind that these parts are most likely not made of food contact grade components and are not being regularly cleaned/sanitized and as such may have an affect on the cleanliness of your final product. At a minimum, we recommend to use a stainless steel nozzle and try to keep your printer and printing environment as clean as possible.
  • All FDM 3D printed parts have a surface finish comprised of visible layer lines created by the 3D printing process. These layer lines can harbor small pieces of food and promote the growth of bacteria, pathogens and other harmful contaminants which can migrate into the food. If your 3D printed part is expected to come into contact with food on a regular basis, measures should be taken to ensure that the part is thoroughly cleaned, sanitized and verified clean prior to each use.

    Packaging

    TruePure PLA comes carefully spooled on a 100% recyclable cardboard spool, vacuum packed in a moisture resistant metallic bag with extra adsorbent double silica gel desiccants packs. Guaranteed tangle free upon arrival.

    Trouble free end-of-spool
    In case you're not there when the filament runs out, we carefully ensure that when the end of the spool is reached, the filament will easily release from its winding hole, saving your printer the trouble of playing tug of war with your spool holder.

    Scraps Recycling

    3D Filament Recycling Canada

    We gladly accept any scrap produced from our filament. Leftover material, supports and discarded prints can be shipped to us for efficient and responsible recycling. Please segregate different materials and mark your package/s clearly, letting us know what's inside. Colours do not have to be segregated.
