PolyLite™ is a family of 3D printing filaments made with the best raw materials to deliver exceptional quality and reliability. PolyLite™ Galaxy PLA is a high-quality PLA with a hint of reflective glitter inside to create a series of dark sparkling colours with an eye-catching galaxy effect.
To prevent nozzle clogs a 0.6mm nozzle diameter or larger is necessary for printing galaxy filament.
Starry Galaxy Effect - PolyLite™ Galaxy PLA is a high quality PLA with a hint of reflective glitter inside to create a series of dark sparkling colours with an eye catching galaxy effect. This starry effect makes PolyLite™ Galaxy PLA a great option for astronomy models, science fiction toys, figurines and a wide range of fun and aesthetically pleasing projects.
Strength and Rigidity - PolyLite™ Galaxy PLA is based on the same high molecular weight PLA as PolyLite™ PLA which makes it one of the most rigid PLA materials on the market. The combination of good tensile strength, inter-layer adhesion and stiffness makes PolyLite™ Galaxy PLA ideal for product design and prototyping applications that require a rigid material that is easy to print.
Compatibility In Mind - PolyLite™ Galaxy PLA is compatible with a wide range of 3D printers equipped with a 0.6mm nozzle or larger. Galaxy PLA works well on most printing surface with a thin layer of glue stick applied, no heated bed is required but can sometimes be used at 40 - 60°C for better results (maximum 60°C).
Anti Heat Creep technology - PolyLite™ Galaxy PLA is manufactured with Polymakers Jam-Free™ technology which improves the heat stability of the filament with softening temperatures over 140°C and leads to excellent printing quality with zero risk of nozzle jams caused by heat creep .
Uncompromised Quality - PolyLite™ Galaxy PLA filament is made with the highest quality ingredients including Ingeo® from Natureworks. Natureworks is a world-leading biopolymers supplier based in the USA with a portfolio of high quality raw PLA materials produced from rapidly renewable plant resources. Combining Polymakers innovative R&D technologies, compounding and extrusion systems with Natureworks Ingeo® resins produces a reliable 3D printing filament to print beautiful and accurate models
Heat creep is the the process of heat spreading irregularly throughout the hot end, one common example is with all metal hot end designs. Once heat creeps towards the cold end, the PLA filament softens prematurely in the cold end and expands resulting in a jam. Polymakers Jam-Free™ technology increases the heat resistance of the filament itself (not the printed part) to 140˚C which prevents the filament from prematurely softening in the cold end and can still melt rapidly once entering the heating zone.
Printing Temperature: 190˚C - 230˚C
Bed Temperature: 25˚C - 60˚C
Printing Speed: 40mm/s - 60mm/s
Nozzle Recommended: 0.6mm or higher, Hardened Steel
PolyWood is a wood mimic filament without actual wood powder, which removes all risks of nozzle clogs. PolyWood is made entirely with PLA using a special foaming technology. It exhibits similar density and appearance as wood.
