Tough PLA BCN3D Filaments

Impact resistant / Stiff / Easy to print



Tough PLA (Polylactic Acid) is engineered for its high impact resistance and strength, similar to those of ABS, in combination with the stiffness of PLA. This material shows excellent results in layer adhesion and is the perfect match for tooling or manufacturing aids where a high impact is needed. Tough PLA is an easy to print material with a very good surface quality.
