 Product Description


ECOMAX® High Temperature PLA Biopolymer is made in the USA using 100% virgin High Temp Natureworks PLA biopolymer resin and premium colorants.  Our filament is precision extruded onto 1kg reels (2.2 lbs) and then vacuum-sealed with desiccant to protect it from moisture.  

Once you anneal parts made with this material, you can expect a substantial increase your thermal and mechanical properties.  This PLA prints like normal PLA, but offers almost double the thermal properties - up to 140°C (test data coming soon!)

This filament is ideal for use with practically all desktop printers, such as Makerbot, Reprap, Printrbot jr., Makerfarm Prusa i3, MendelMax, UP! 3D, Flashforge, Solidoodle, Afinia, Lulzbot Taz, Makergear, Ultimaker, or any other printer accepting 1.75, 2.85, or 3.0mm filament.   


Filament diameter specs:  

  • 1.75mm +/- 0.03mm
  • 2.85mm +/- 0.03mm

Recommended Print Conditions:

  • Extruder Temp:  190-220°C, Ideal 200°C
  • Bed Temp:  23-60°C [No Heated Bed Required]
  • Bed Prep:  3DXTech Blue Painters Tape, Hairspray or PVA Glue on clean glass

Annealing Directions:

  • Place the printed part in an oven at 80-130c for 30-60minutes.  You may want to leave any supports on the part to help support it if you're concerned about deflection.  The additional heat will further crystallize the PLA and increase the heat distortion temperature (HDT) to upwards of  120-140°C!

Test data:

  • We have printed test bars using standard PLA and HT-PLA being tested for mechanical and thermal properties.  We will post them to our blog and send out an email when the data is back from the lab.

  1. Best PLA I've printed with

    Posted by Ray on 10th Feb 2017

    I'm not a big PLA printer, I prefer ABS and ASA, but I've picked up a few spools from various sources. With that came various discrepancies, such as brittle filament that can't be left in an extruder overnight (without it shattering and requiring maintenance), pickier than nylon with moisture, or the common issue with PLA deforming in heat. Not an issue with this stuff. It's stronger, plenty resilient to the elements, and prints wonderfully (even without a layer cooling fan!). The only stuff I've experienced to be tougher is Raptor series PLA from another supplier, but that is not as easy to print in my experience, and it shrinks more than most PLAs.

    I print end use parts for paintball markers, and have used Raptor High Temp/High Performance PLA for smaller pieces that needed the rigidity of PLA over ASA, but have now replaced Raptor with EcoMax. It's blacker, prints better and is plenty strong. Another bang-up formulation from 3dxtech!
