ECOMAX® Tough PLA is a unique filament created to offer superior impact resistance, ductility, and lower gloss when compared to standard PLA. Developed for industrial-grade applications that require a more robust set of properties than what is usually available from typical the PLA. This material is ideal for large parts or small and offers ease of printing, excellent layer bonding, low gloss appearance, and the low warp you would expect from a PLA-based material. We proudly make ECOMAX® Tough PLA at our factory in Grand Rapids, MI using state of the art equipment, resins, and colorants.
Our AquaTek® X1 Water Soluble Support works great with our Tough PLA and allows you to print parts with complex geometries and then dissolve away the support in warm water. Check it out HERE.
