Volcano PLA is an industrial grade PLA which is engineered for professional applications that require high printing speeds and improved heat resistance and mechanical properties similar to ABS. Volcano PLA offers the same mechanical and thermal properties - after annealing - as most ABS filaments, but with the biodegradability and ease of printing of PLA. Volcano PLA combines a high heat resistance with high printing speeds and high impact resistance into a PLA-based filament engineered for industrial applications.


Unique features

  • High heat resistance of ≥ 95° C after annealing

  • Less than 0.3% shrinkage after annealing

    • Roughly 8 times less shrinkage compared to competitor materials available on the market

    • Engineered to have excellent dimensional accuracy before and after annealing

  • Engineered for high printing speeds of > 120mm/s

    • Highly crystalline immediately after extruding resulting in increased stiffness and temperature resistance

  • Superb mechanical properties comparable to ABS

  • Excellent interlayer adhesion

  • Biodegradable

  • Matte surface finish


General printing guidelines *

Nozzle size: ≥ 0.15mm Layer height: ≥ 0.06mm Flow rate: ± 95 - 110%
Print temp: ± 230 - 265° C * Print speed: High Retraction: Yes ± 5mm
Heat bed: ± 0 - 60° C * Fan speed: 50-100% Experience level: Beginner

*) Above displayed settings are meant as guidance to find your optimal print settings. These ranges in settings should work for most printers, but please do feel free to experiment outside these ranges if you think it is suitable for your printer. There are a lot of different type of printers, hot-ends and printer offsets that it is extremely difficult to give an overall one-size-fits-all setting.

*) Flow rate depends on printing speed and type of hotend used. For full metal hotends a lower flow rate is recommended and for high printing speeds a high(er) flow rate is recommended.
