Protopasta Translucent HTPLA - 1.75mm, 500g, Silver Smoke

Regular price $0.00 $41.03 Sale

Key Features:

  • A one-of-a-kind gunsmoke gray PLA filament with a translucent base
  • No abrasive fillers so you can expect normal wear with standard nozzles.
  • Good results are achieved using standard PLA parameters with standard build surface preparation (blue tape, glue stick, or BuildTak). No heated bed required.
  • Prints are heat treatable and finish with a transparent gray reminiscent of tinted windows in a car or the lenses of a pair of sunglasses.

Protopasta's HTPLA v2.0 is better than the original kickstarted version. This new formulation is higher performing and lower cost. HTPLA prints similar to standard PLA but is "Hella Tough" and can be "Heat Treated" for "Higher Temperature" resistance. This durable PLA has a theoretical Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) of more than 140C (285F) after heat treating though in our experience 120C or more was practically attained. This means HTPLA parts maintain strength and form to much higher temperatures than PLA, ABS, or Polyesters like PET which loose structure as soon as 55C and by 100C.
