HTPLA Matte Fiber

Made with plant fibers, but reminiscent of Ceramic, Marble, or Limestone, White Matte Fiber HTPLA brings a superb finish to both artistic and technical parts with no special hardware required. Based on Proto-pasta HTPLA, this Matte Fiber version can be heat treated to retain more stiffness to higher temperatures. Dimensional stability is improved compared to HTPLA without fibers. The plant-based fibers improve the adhesion of glues and coatings. Performance is similar to Carbon Fiber HTPLA but the processing of Matte Fiber does NOT require a wear-resistant nozzle


Material Properties:

  • Base material: Heat treatable PLA with high temp resistance

  • Characteristics: low odor, non-toxic, renewaby sourced

  • Additives: Minimal color added

  • Density: approx. 1.14g/cc


HTPLA is a semi-crystalline grade of PLA optimized for heat-treating (typically between 95-110C) for higher temperature use.
