SELECT Metal PLA is our latest PLA and is made from 100% virgin PLA pellets. Metal PLA is one of the most versatile and easy to use filaments on the market. With the right settings you can print parts that is very strong, and it also have a nice metal look surface and a slight rough surface which gives it a very natural look and feel.
This filament has some glitter mixed with it for a shiny metal look.
SELECT Metal PLA has a rough surface which gives it a more natural look when printed. It also has the benefit of higher prints speeds than regular PLA. This version of PLA is perfect when you don´t want shiny prints but rather have the matt surface without any reflections. It´s perfect for architects and model makers that don´t want that “plastic feeling”.
Due to the very low shrinkage SELECT Metal PLA is very easy to use in all FDM/FFF printers. The risk of warping are very small with SELECT Metal PLA and it works well without a heated build plate, but for larger prints and the absolute best results we recommend a heated build plate. A temperature setting of 40-60°C, will make the prints stick even better.
