Pro PLA (formerly known as APLA+) is the best PLA filament available for 3D printing your most demanding projects. When you're looking for a tough PLA with excellent temperature resistance that prints as smooth as butter, Pro PLA is the material for you.
Manufactured in the US from genuine NatureWorks™ 3D870 Ingeo PLA, Pro PLA offers a third-generation level of material engineering for 3D printing. Since it's a NatureWorks PLA material, it's a sustainably-sourced bio-plastic with an incredible eco-profile.
Pro PLA has higher impact strength than ABS and Standard PLA with a heat resistance rivaling that of ABS. That's even before any post-processing. You can anneal your design after 3D printing for even better heat resistance and impact toughness. For example, Pro PLA boasts 4.3 times the impact strength of PLA.
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.
