Spectrum PLA MATT is a material based on PLA, which chemical composition has been modified in such a way that it is possible to obtain matte surface elements.
Spectrum PLA MATT is a PLA-based material with a chemical composition modified so that it would be possible to obtain matte surfaces of printed object. The matte finish of printed items considerably improves their aesthetic properties and also minimises the visibility of layers on the side surfaces of printed items. In addition, the material maintains all the features of PLA-based classic polymers, i.e. the easy and highly efficient printing, low shrinkage and very good adhesion between layers and also between the build platforms and printed objects. Further, the use of admixtures has improved the impact resistance and lowered the brittleness of printed items.
PLA MATT advantages
Due to the modification of the chemical composition of Spectrum PLA MATT, you may manufacture items which demonstrate:
- Improved mechanical strength properties as regards the impact resistance, resilience and durability as compared to items made of the classic PLA,
- A high quality matte side surface with hardly visible layers,
- Improved adhesion between layers and also between the build platforms of the equipment and printed objects,
- The possibility to increase the printing speed with the higher flowability of the material.
With the above-mentioned properties, the applications of Spectrum PLA MATT are mostly oriented towards the presentation of major aesthetic values, i.e. industrial design prototyping for concept visualisation and demonstration of designer variants of structures. It is also used for interior design purposes and architectural models.
Filament is reeled on the neat, transparent spool. Each spool contains information on the type of material, diameter and recommended printing temperature. Filament is vacuum-packed with a moisture absorber. Instruction manual inside. Whole product packed in the original, folied Spectrum Filaments packaging.
