PLA 3D870 is a high-performance PLA filament that is designed to be strong, heat-resistant, and easy to print with. It is mainly made by NatureWorks, a leading manufacturer of bioplastics, using a proprietary process that creates a highly crystalline structure within the PLA polymer.
One of the main benefits of PLA 3D870 is its high-performance characteristics. Its high level of crystallization gives it exceptional strength and heat resistance, making it ideal for use in applications where parts need to withstand high temperatures or heavy loads. Its high stiffness and rigidity also make it suitable for use in structural parts or components that require a high level of dimensional stability.
PLA 3D870 has a glass transition temperature (Tg) of 80-85°C, which means that it remains stiff and rigid at relatively high temperatures. It also has a heat deflection temperature (HDT) of 60-65°C, which indicates its ability to resist deformation under load at elevated temperatures.
In addition to its high-performance characteristics, PLA 3D870 also offers excellent print quality. Its smooth surface finish and sharp details make it well-suited for producing high-quality, detailed parts. Its low shrinkage rate and minimal warping make it easy to work with, and it is compatible with a wide range of 3D printers.

PLA 3D870 is a versatile material that can be used for a wide range of applications. It is commonly used for prototyping and product design, as well as small-scale production runs. It is also a popular choice for creating custom parts for hobbyists and makers.

In addition to its practical uses, PLA 3D870 is also popular in educational settings. Its ease of use and compatibility with a wide range of 3D printers make it a popular choice for teaching students about 3D printing technology.

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.
