Red Matte Fiber HTPLA - 1.75mm 500g | Proto-Pasta
Red Proto-Pasta Matte Fiber HTPLA
- Same beautiful matte finish and same great performance as Carbon Fiber PLA
- Plant fibers are used instead of carbon fiber to obtain the same great finish
- Does NOT need a wear resistant nozzle or any special hardware
- No heated bed needed
- Improved bonding strength with glue (compared to non-fiber PLA)
- Fibers allow for great adhesion to paint and other post-printing treatments
Notes from Proto-pasta's website:
Suggested print temperature is 190-230C, but we had good luck with a slow 1st layer at 230C on cold blue tape and 210C thereafter for a balance of strength and aesthetic.
This material does absorb moisture and dry filament is recommend for best results. When saturated with moisture, this material oozes more readily. Lowering flow and/or temperatures can minimize oozing and improve detail, though higher temperatures are recommended for best mechanical properties. With higher temperatures, ooze artifacts can be removed post build.
