The impact strength of parts printed using PolyMax PLA is 8-9 times that of regular PLA-printed parts and 20% higher than ABS-printed parts
Prints at similar conditions as PolyPlus PLA; same high printing quality as PolyPlus PLA
Ideal replacement for ABS
Left: comparison of impact strength of printed parts from ABS, PLA and PolyMaxTM PLA. Right: The difference of failure modes between parts printed from regular PLA (brittle failure) and PolyMaxTM PLA (ductile failure).
Comparison of mechanical properties between parts printed from ABS and PolyMax PLA
Average filament diameter: 1.75 mm
Standard deviation of diameter: < 0.05 mm (~ 0.02 mm typical)
Printing temperature range: 180 - 240 °C
Recommended printing temperatures: 185 - 200 °C (with HBP) / 200 - 230 °C (without HBP)
PolyMax PLA is compatible with most FDM/FFF based desktop 3D printers, including MakerBot Replicator 2, Replicator 2X (can be used reliably for dual-extrusion printing), MakerGear M2, Afinia/Up!Plus, Reprap-series, and many more!
Store unused PolyMax PLA filament in the provided resealable bag with the desiccant pack to prevent moisture absorption.
