Reflow of the Netherlands have pioneered an approach to recycle discarded plastic into a range of exceptional sustainable materials for 3D printing. They source the highest quality streams from leading recyclers and work closely with scientific institutions to optimise their filament range. When you print with Reflow you’re supporting an established network of recyclers, Makers and designers in tackling plastic pollution while co-creating meaningful work.
Our rPLA is a bioderived material originally produced from corn starch but recycled again from food packaging waste sourced in the Benelux region. It’s easy to print with, durable with excellent print quality.
PLA is a highly versatile biopolymer that is economically efficient to synthesise and possesses biodegradable capabilities under the right conditions. It has a range of common applications from cardiovascular implants or PPE in healthcare as well as uses like plastic films, bottles and straws in packaging. Our rPLA is sourced from a consistent stream of food packaging waste, collected and pelletised by a leading recycler in the Benelux region.
rPLA. Bioderived, Easy to Print with Impeccable Surface Finish
PLA or Polylactic acid is a bioderived plastic and the leading filament choice for creators. Our materials original source is corn starch. While PLA can be broken down at the end of life, it does not naturally decompose at speed without industrial composting assistance. That way, by taking PLA food packaging and creating rPLA filament, we’re extending it’s life by another cycle. Our rPLA filament prints with accuracy and consistency on all setups, exhibiting flawless surface finish and print quality to produce highly visual and durable finished products.
