Marble PLA

Marble PLA is a mix of standard PLA with small black PLA chips for a marble appearance. PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a corn based plastic. While strong, it does not hold up to high heat or extended UV lighting. It will biodegrade in the right conditions over the course of several years. It is the preferred material for early prototyping due to its ease of use, affordability and wide range of colors.


Marble PLA has a great surface finish and adds just the right amount of speckle to your prints. Several colors are available such as black marble with white specs, white with black specks and various other colors.
