PLA / PHA Blue Grey 2.85mm filament by colorFabb is a PLA based filament enhanced with PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoate) which makes the filament tougher, with good layer adhesion properties and reduced warping tendencies. It’s an excellent 3D printing filament.

 

PHA is similar to PLA in that it is a bio-polyester, ensuring that colorFabb PLA / PHA filament is still biodegradable.

 

Each colorFabb PLA / PHA spool contains approx. 750g of filament, is available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameters in a range of colours.

 

Due to the large variation of monitors, video cards, operating systems & Internet browsers and the effects each has on each other, the colours on this page may not exactly match the materials.

Does colorFabb PLA/PHA work with all 3D printers?

The colorFabb testlab features a wide range of popular FDM / FFF based 3D printers. colorFabb continuously test their products on a range of 3D printers to check the quality of the materials produced and to develop exciting new materials.

 

The following printers are used in the colorFabb lab: Ultimaker Original, Ultimaker Original Dual Extrusion, Ultimaker 2, Makerbot Replicator 2, Delta Tower (E3D hot-end), Felix 20, Leapfrog Creator, BEETHEFIRST.

 

As such, colorFabb PLA / PHA can be used for most commercially available leading brands 3D FDM/FFF printers. Please check your specific printer set up, specification and operation of your 3D printer for compatibility.

 

What are the processing guidelines for colorFabb PLA/PHA?

  • Recommended extruder temperature: 195-220°C

  • Recommended platform temperature: 50-60°C (if available, heated bed not required)

  • Recommended print speed: 40 - 100mm/s 

 

What is the diameter tolerance?

colorFabb use laser measurement systems to check the diameter of their filament real time during production. It’s measured over 1000 times per second and helps guarantee that each spool of colorFabb 3D printing filament is produced within tolerance. colorFabb can guarantee 0.05mm +/- on both 2.85mm and 1.75mm colorFabb 3D printing filament.

 

Is a heated bed necessary for printing with colorFabb PLA/PHA?

No, a heated bed is not necessary for printing in colorFabb PLA / PHA filaments. PLA / PHA performs well on both heated and non-heated build platforms. For those printing on a cold build platform masking tape works well as the rough surface provides additional adhesion for the first layer.

 

Is it necessary to coat the build platform prior to a print?

We would recommend using your normal adhesion, as you would for any other print, for example a little glue stick on an Ultimaker 2.

 

Can colorFabb PLA/PHA be used as support material?

Yes, colorFabb works well in prints as support material and can be removed once the print is complete.
