【Engineered Precision and Performance】GratKit PLA 3D printing filament 1KG offers high dimensional accuracy and consistency. GratKit uses advanced CCD diameter measuring and a self-adaptive control system to control filament output at 1.75(±0.03)mm diameter during the production process.
【Moisture Resistant Pro】GratKit 3D printing filament went through a 24-hour drying process in the thermostatic room before sealed packing. Moreover, GratKit 3D printing filament gets environmental glue attached to the reel to make sure the reel stands longer after unpacking.
【Dust Free Storage】GratKit PLA filament gets a zipper bag included for filament storage after unpacking to keep filament away from dust. It is also recommended to zip the remaining filament together with a desiccant bag in the zipper bag.
【Tangle Free Easy to Use】GratKit PLA filament 1.75mm is produced under a strict production line to make sure every roll of filament is rolled up by the precise machine. Every pack of filament is tangle free.
【Environmental Packing】GratKit PLA 3D Printing filament uses recyclable cardboard reels for environmental purposes.
【Industrial Standard Quality】GratKit aspires to gratify demand of smart manufacturing. All products are designed and manufactured with industrial standard quality.
【About Colors】GratKit is offering PLA 3D printing filament of all colors. We provide OEM and ODM services for customized colors that are not available in the market yet. You are always welcome to contact GratKit with a Pantone serial number or simply the CMYK color numbers.
PLA melts at a relatively low temperature of about 175 degrees Celsius. Unlike so-called thermoset materials, PLA can be heated past its melting point multiple times with very little degradation. It’s a hard material, but that also means it’s somewhat brittle, and once it breaks, it likes to shatter. Only this material is proven for 50 microns layer height.
However, PLA is not a perfect material and, just like every other plastic, has some disadvantages. The low melting temperature also means low-temperature resistance. Parts start to lose mechanical strength at temperatures over 60 °C.
The combination of being low in UV and temperature resistance means that it’s not ideal for outdoor use. Also, PLA is only soluble in chemicals like chloroform or hot benzene. So when connecting multiple pieces, you’re better off using just glue.
Even though PLA is on its own food safe, we do not recommend repeatedly drinking or eating from your 3D prints. Because of the small fractures on the print surface, bacteria can build up in there over time. You can prevent this by applying a food-safe coating. When post-processing PLA, it’s better to use wet sanding. Without water, you'll quickly start heating the plastic by friction, which will cause it to soften and make it hard to keep sanding.
