SWISSFIL® PLA has a glass temperature around 55°C. It can be used for temperatures up to 45°C (continuous) and 60°C (short-period), respectively. The filament is bio-degradable, can be dissolved in many organic solvents and shows a high UV light resistance. It complies with flammability class V-2 of UL94. For further material properties please check the technical datasheet.

Typically, the PLA filament is printed at temperatures between 190-220°C. For better build plate adhesion a heated print bed is recommended with a build plate temperature of 50-70°C.

In case the PLA was stored in a humid enviroment for some time, drying is recommended before use. It can be dryed during two to four hours at 80°C.
