ePLA-ST filament s based on the PLA resin. After adding high-performance modifiers and other additives, it is modified and granulated by a special twin-screw extruder and then prepared by a filament forming machine. The FDM 3D printer filament has the characteristics of high impact resistance, high elongation at break, low warping, high bonding strength, high printing accuracy, high precision, smooth printing, light ageing resistance, and air oxidation resistance. It is suitable for continuous printing for a long time without nozzle carbonisation risk.
ePLA-ST printing parameters
【ePLA-ST】 is very suitable for printing some prototypes of mechanical parts with strength and precision requirements and can even be directly made into functional final products. It is generally used in automobile parts, IT manufacturing, machinery and electrical parts and other fields.
3D printed parts using ePLA-ST
According to the data comparison, ePLA-ST's overall physical properties are stronger than eSUN's classic PLA. It has higher impact resistance, higher elongation at break, and better precision. In the follow-up, we also evaluated PLA+ and compared the printing performance of the three materials. The specific data conclusions are as follows.
ePLA-ST vs PLA+ vs PLA physical properties:
ePLA-ST, PLA+, PLA performance comparison
Note: Printing test conditions: nozzle 215℃; bottom plate 45℃; speed 40mm/s
In summary, ePLA-ST as a new product of eSUN PLA series, has higher impact resistance, higher elongation at break, lower warpage, and a whiter colour. During printing, the connection between layers is also very smooth, the print will be more resistant to light ageing and air oxidation; it is easy to bend under pressure, not easily broken, and has super toughness!

How to Store:
1. If you are going to leave your printer inactive for more than a couple of days, please retract the filament to protect your printer nozzle.
2. In order to extend the life of your filament, please place the unsealing filament back to original vacuum bag and stock it in a cool and dry place.
3. When storing your filament, please feed the loose end through the holes on the edge of the filament reel to avoid winding, so that it feeds properly the next time you are ready to print.
