 PLA MATTe is an easy to print variant on the everyday material PLA and exists for >70% out of recycled Post-Industrial PLA. Its surface diffuses light to give it a matt look and creates a rough feeling. PLA matte is slightly abrasive, please consider using a hardened nozzle. This material can be printed on most common printers and has a reliable bed adhesion to most common build plate materials.


“Birdhouse 16eme” Designed by  FLOWALISTIK

Please note this material is definitely more brittle than your regular PLA filament, so make sure there are no sharp filament feeding angles from the spool to the nozzle. Get that right and you will adore this filament!

There are times when you may require a quality filament that has very low light refraction.  Even though we love all our wonderful quality PLA filaments, we have sometimes required a filament which had a plain matte finish, making it look less like plastic!

With this new filament offering we are able to provide you with a filament that is very easy to print even on a cold bed, has superb layer adhesion and a semi textured finish.  It does not reflect light and has a finish that is perfect for some architectural and mechanical pieces. 

Great for model building, it also has excellent flexural strength for a PLA material, which means in can take a knock or two.  Layers lines are almost invisible (even when printing at 0.2mm layer height with a standard 0.4mm nozzle).

This 1kg of filament spool is shrink wrapped, boxed and shrink wrapped yet again!  Ensuring that it arrives with you moisture free and ready to print.

Fantastic layer bonding, low temperature printing, no heated platform necessary, lays down beautifully on the majority of FFF/FDM 3D printer platform surfaces.


Superb tolerances with a smooth finish, a perfect compliment to your 3D printer.

Features:

  • Tougher and less brittle compared to regular PLA
  • Improved printing speeds
  • No "warping" - can be printed on a cold platform
  • Biodegradable
  • Limited odour
  • Easy to print slightly textured surface

Very stiff but this filament is for experts

You've got to know what you're doing with this filament and it's a more difficult setup than either PETG or ABS. However once you get it dialled in its incredible stuff. First warning. This filament will EAT your nozzle. Whatever material has been added to give it a higher modulus and matte finish is also highly abrasive. I printed just 600g's worth and it increased my brass nozzle aperture from 0.4 to 0.9mm in that time. USE A STEEL NOZZLE!!!

This strength of this filament (not so much stiffness) is very sensitive to print temperature .Make sure your nozzle temps are well calibrated and cooling is the lowest it can possibly be that avoids excessive stringing. For me that was 15-40%. I found the strength was optimal around 220C. However the neatest print was at 212C@40% fan.

Measured flexural modulus was 4900Mpa which is higher than the spec and approaching CF-blends with a 0.6mm nozzle 0.4mm layer height, 218C. [Test piece was an 8mmx8mmx150mm bar, loaded 50N in the centre.]

The finish on the part is very neat, smooth and very matte in appearance, perfect for my telescope parts.

As noted in other reviews build plate adhesion is higher than normal. Do not remove the part until fully cooled and only with a sharp rapp to the part. Do not try to prise off the build plate.

Beginners, stay well clear of this filament. expert users; it's one of the best i've used.

Update to my previous review

Update: I also just had to use chloroform to unblock my nozzle, after printing 2.38 grams. I have 900 grams of this filament left if anyone wants any? It's useless.

I am using a micro-swiss all-metal hotend and coated nozzle, with dual thermocouples, and I have zero problems printing hard stuff like carbon, Nylon and TPU. PLA was supposed to be easy. Not if you choose this one.

Looks Okay - but carbon PLA looks 500% better even if it is abrasive. Also, RIP build plate.

I was hoping this would be as good as carbon-reinforced PLA, in terms of appearance and printability. I was wrong.

Firstly it does not behave like PLA, the stringiness and oozing properties are difficult to manage. OK, so these can be adjusted for. Then comes the adhesion to the print bed. It's so unmanageably sticky that I broke my glass print bed removing the first prints I ever did. Note that I've printed with PLA, ABS, carbon, PETG, flexibles, conductives, wood and Nylon on this print bed, hotend and nozzle with no problems - then come along this matt "PLA" and I've had some of the worst prints for years. I'd recommend you dont buy. If you want that carbon look, buy a couple of good quality hardened nozzles and use carbon - or if you plan to do a lot, buy a ruby nozzle and you'll be good for a LOT of abrasive printing.

Decent filament for the cost

As the title says, it's good filament for how much it is - it seemed to overextrude but this is more of my default ptofiles problem than the PLA itself. Small tweaks to the flow should fix this.

Matte black effect is really nice, and seems to hide layer lines pretty well at 0.2mm. The roll itself comes on a cardboard spool, which I appreciate more than having tons of plastic ones as these are easier to break down and recycle. The plastic did seem quite brittle, but as long as you have a filament guide this should negate any snapping. One thing worth noting is that the print temperatures on the box didn't really match up what I needed to print at. Box recommends 205-225 but found that 195-200 works perfectly.

Overall reasonably happy with it. Would recommend. Printing on an Ender-3.

Looks fantastic but poor layer bonding

I was very impressed with the visual quality of prints using this filament, layer lines are nearly invisible and the matte effect looks fantastic. Unfortunately the layer bonding is pretty weak and and it will break along the layer lines under a very small load compared with regular PLA. I am currently experimenting with it to see if I can improve its strength and will update if I am successful, as it stands I will not be able to use it for its intended purpose. It will be great for models if you are careful with the small parts.
