Filaments depot PLA 3D850 is a high-performance 3D printing filament that is made from  Ingeo Biopolymer 3D850 a biodegradable and compostable thermoplastic material called polylactic acid (PLA).

It is an upgraded version of standard PLA filament, with enhanced mechanical properties that make it 20% stronger than regular PLA. 
In addition to its high tensile strength, PLA 3D850 also has a flexural modulus of 4000 Mpa, which means it is resistant to deformation and has a high stiffness. It has an elongation at break of 5%, which ensures that it can withstand stress and strain without breaking or cracking. These mechanical properties make PLA 3D850 ideal for functional parts, such as gears, brackets, and fixtures.
PLA 3D850 also has impressive thermal properties. It has a heat deflection temperature of 60°C at 0.455 MPa, which means it can withstand moderate temperatures during use. Its glass transition temperature is 55°C, which is the point at which it transitions from a rigid to a flexible state. This property is important for parts that need to flex or bend without breaking.
When it comes to printing, PLA 3D850 is easy to use and produces high-quality prints with excellent surface finish. It has a low melting point and flows smoothly, which means it can be easily printed on most 3D printers. It also has low shrinkage and warping, which helps to prevent the print from lifting or cracking during printing.
Filaments Depot PLA 3D850 filament has a consistent diameter, which ensures that the printed object has a smooth and even surface.
One of the main benefits of PLA 3D850 is its environmental friendliness. It is made from renewable resources, such as corn starch, sugarcane, and tapioca roots. It is also biodegradable and compostable, which means it can break down naturally without harming the environment. Additionally, it does not emit toxic fumes during printing, making it a safer choice for indoor use.
Made in Canada, Ontario utilizing sophisticated extrusion equipment and high-tech drying technology. The filaments are monitored with live multi-axis micrometer, and computerized diameter monitoring technology. Producing clean, repeatable and reproducible results.

    Annealing (Heat Treating) Instructions

    To anneal a 3D printed part made from 3D850 filament, you can follow these general steps:
    1. Preparing the part: Ensure that your 3D printed part is clean and free from any support structures or debris.

    2. Oven setup: Set up an oven or a heat source capable of reaching the required annealing temperature. Check the manufacturer's guidelines or the material datasheet to determine the recommended annealing temperature for 3D850 filament. Typically, for 3D850, the annealing temperature ranges between 80 to 110 degrees Celsius (176 to 230 degrees Fahrenheit).

    3. Heat the part: Place the 3D printed part on a heat-resistant tray or a ceramic plate and put it inside the oven. Make sure the part is adequately supported and does not deform during the process.

    4. Annealing process: Gradually increase the oven temperature to the recommended annealing temperature for 3D850. This should be done slowly to avoid any sudden temperature changes that could cause warping or cracking of the part. You can increase the temperature in increments of 10-15 degrees Celsius (18-27 degrees Fahrenheit) every 10-15 minutes until the desired annealing temperature is reached.

    5. Soak at annealing temperature: Once the oven reaches the recommended annealing temperature, allow the part to soak at that temperature for a sufficient amount of time. The recommended soaking time can vary depending on the size and geometry of the part, but a general guideline is to keep it at the annealing temperature for at least 30 minutes to an hour.

    6. Cooling process: After the soaking period, slowly cool down the part by reducing the oven temperature gradually. Avoid rapid cooling, as it may introduce stress or deformations in the part. You can turn off the oven and let it cool naturally inside or open the oven door slightly to facilitate cooling while ensuring a gradual temperature decrease.

    7. Post-annealing inspection: Once the part has cooled down to room temperature, inspect it for any changes in dimensions, surface quality, or structural integrity. Annealing can help relieve internal stresses and improve the part's mechanical properties, but it's essential to verify if it meets your specific requirements.
