PolyTerra™ Gradient PLA is a colour transition 3D printing filament that transitions between various colours and shades throughout the spool. Based on Polymakers PolyTerra™ Matte formula, this bioplastic filament is sourced naturally to provide ease of use, printing quality, speed and reliability. It is the perfect choice to easily create colourful or multi-shade models with a smooth matte surface finish that hides the layers.
Gradient Transition - PolyTerra™ Gradient PLA combines the incredible matte surface finish of PolyTerra™ PLA with a series of stunning gradient colour transition filaments. Each gradient has been designed to focus on a specific theme or colour spectrum, delivering a fun filament for hobbyists, educators and small businesses. PolyTerra™ Gradient PLA is the perfect choice for printing dynamic and unique vases, artistic creations, statues and some articulated models.
Optimized for Support - PolyTerra™ Gradient PLA has been engineered with excellent support removal properties, enabling users to more easily break away support or rafts from the surface of their prints.
High Speed Capable - Polymaker have engineered the base PolyTerra™ PLA formula with ideal flow properties to deliver a filament which is capable of high-speed printing (only on suitable hardware).
Bioplastic Matte PLA Formula - PolyTerra™ Gradient PLA is based on a newly developed material from Polymaker called FBC (Fully Bio Compound). It is a compound of high-quality Ingeo PLA compounded with naturally occurring elements. The result is a PLA filament with less plastic content that feels softer and more ductile / less brittle on the spool. Polymakers FBC formula contains less PLA plastic to degrade which improves the speed of degradation under specific industrial conditions. Like other PLAs, the degradation rate is still very slow in ambient temperatures.
Ductility (X-Y) - PolyTerra™ Gradient PLA is softer than regular PLA, delivering improved ductility in the horizontal X-Y axis than standard PLA formulations. Whereas a test bar in standard PLA will snap when bent, PolyTerra™ Dual PLA will tend to gradually bend and fracture in the horizontal axis.
Compatibility / Jam-Free™- PolyTerra™ Gradient PLA is compatible with a wide range of 3D printers and is manufactured with Polymakers Jam-Free™ technology which leads to excellent printing quality with zero risk of nozzle jams caused by heat creep.
Uncompromised Quality - PolyTerra™ Gradient PLA filament is made with the highest quality ingredients including Ingeo® from Natureworks; a high-quality PLA material produced from rapidly renewable plant resources in the US. Combining Polymaker's innovative R&D technologies, compounding and extrusion systems with Natureworks Ingeo® resins produces a reliable 3D printing filament to print beautiful and accurate models.
