Economy PLA is a UK PLA filament for 3D printing, made with up to 99.99% recycled material.
To avoid being landfilled, PLA waste has been sourced from a EU supplier before being compounded and extruded in the North of England, and spooled onto 100% recyclable cardboard reels.
Post-industrial (pre-consumer) waste is material diverted from the waste stream during a manufacturing process. It is single-source waste - free of debris - which mitigates the risk of contamination. Utilising post-industrial recycled material also ensures optimal 3D printing performance, in line with ‘virgin’ material.
Patented technology has been applied to ensure easy printing - with minimal warping. Economy PLA is ideal for general prototyping and non-industrial applications that do not require impact resistance and / or load bearing.
Standard PLA settings are advised, though experimenting with your own parameters is recommended due to the many variables involved in 3D printing hardware / software.
To optimise 3D print quality, we strongly recommend the use of a dust filter when 3D printing with Economy PLA. This is a link to some options available for free download via Printables.com.
