Technical Info: Pro PLA (formerly APLA+) has higher impact strength than ABS and PLA with a heat resistance rivaling that of ABS! Available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameter, new Pro PLA will help your 3D printed projects look amazing and perform amazingly. Anneal your design after 3D printing for even better heat resistance.
Pro PLA is engineered and designed specifically with 3D printing in mind. Pro PLA was designed with the high impact strength needed in industrial applications to meet the growing demand by companies for a material with the properties of ABS, but the printability of PLA. Without any annealing/heat treating, Pro PLA displays impact strength levels at 8 times that of standard PLA and 1.5 times that of ABS. Annealing Pro PLA gives it over 12x the impact strength of standard PLA and over twice that of ABS.
Even before post-processing, Pro PLA exhibits significantly higher impact strength than ABS.
