Sparkle Flake HTPLA - Cloverleaf Green

All materials in these categories print similar to standard PLA but can be heat treated for higher temperature resistance. This durable PLA has a theoretical Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) of more than 140C (285F) after heat treating. This means HTPLA parts maintain strength and form too much higher temperatures than PLA, ABS, or Polyesters like PET which loose structure as soon as 55C and by 100C.
