Reflow's rPLA is a bioderived material originally produced from corn starch, but recycled again from food packaging waste sourced in the Benelux region. It’s easy to print with, durable with excellent print quality.
Recycled with care
Our natural PLA is 100% recycled material, while black and white filaments contain 2% or less coloring masterbatch.
Reflow rPLA exhibits excellent adhesion to printing bed, ease of printing and superior layer adhesion.
rPLA. Bioderived, Easy to Print with Impeccable Surface Finish
PLA or Polylactic acid is a bioderived plastic and the leading filament choice for creators. rPLA's original source is cornstarch. While PLA can be broken down at the end of life, it does not naturally decompose at speed without industrial composting assistance. So by taking PLA food packaging and creating rPLA filament, we’re extending it’s life by another cycle. Reflow rPLA filament prints with accuracy and consistency on all setups, exhibiting flawless surface finish and print quality to produce highly visual and durable finished products.
PLA is a highly versatile biopolymer that is economically efficient to synthesize and possesses biodegradable capabilities under the right conditions. It has a range of common applications from cardiovascular implants or PPE in healthcare as well as uses like plastic films, bottles and straws in packaging. Our rPLA is sourced from a consistent stream of food packaging waste, collected and pelletized by a leading recycler in the Benelux region.
