About Matte PLA
Matte PLA, also known as Matte Finished PLA, is a type of 3D printing filament made from polylactic acid (PLA) plastic that has been processed to have a matte or non-glossy finish. Matte PLA filaments are available in a range of colors and are popular among 3D printing enthusiasts for their unique finish and texture.
Matte finish: Matte PLA has a non-glossy finish that gives it a unique look and feel. The surface of the printed object is more textured and less shiny than regular PLA, which can be desirable for certain applications.
Easy to print: Matte PLA is easy to print with, similar to regular PLA. It has good layer adhesion and is less prone to warping than other 3D printing filaments.
Biodegradable: Like regular PLA, Matte PLA is made from biodegradable and renewable resources such as cornstarch and sugarcane. This makes it an environmentally friendly option for 3D printing.
Safe for food contact: Matte PLA is safe for food contact and can be used to make food containers and utensils. However, it's important to note that not all PLA filaments are safe for food contact, so it's important to choose a filament that is specifically labeled as such.
Limited post-processing: The matte finish of Matte PLA is achieved through a special processing technique, which can make it difficult to post-process the printed object (e.g. sanding or polishing) without affecting the matte finish.
Overall, Matte PLA is a unique and environmentally friendly filament option for 3D printing that offers a non-glossy, textured finish.
