Ultrafuse® PLA PRO1

Speed, Strength, Versatility and Consistency

PLA PRO1 is an extremely versatile tough PLA filament made for professionals. It reduces your printing time, (subject to printer and object limitations) and the strength exceeds overall mechanical properties of printed ABS parts. Printer settings can be tuned to achieve blazing fast speeds or an unrivaled surface finish. The excellent quality control ensures the highest levels of consistency between colors and batches, it will perform as expected, every time.

Description

Ultrafuse® PLA PRO1 is developed as a high-speed engineering thermoplastic that prints as easy as PLA, at speeds previously considered unusable. Yet it retains far better mechanical properties, that even exceed printed ABS objects. Something that the most demanding users have always had to make a compromise on prior to Ultrafuse® PLA PRO1.

By varying the print settings, users can optimize for speed, strength, surface quality or a mix of those qualities beyond performance levels of traditional filaments. When you find yourself in an environment that requires reliable performance print after print, look no further than to increase your productivity with Ultrafuse® PLA PRO1. By cranking up the speed you can save at least 30%* in printing time. To achieve this high speed, we recommend setting your printer in the tem- perature range of 220°C to 230°C*. Superfast printing may affect surface quality. Ultrafuse® PLA PRO1 has strong layer adhesion which makes prints much stronger, thus increasing functionality.

* Results may differ due to the mechanical properties of the 3D-printer
