PolyTerra™ Edition-R is PLA filament containing 30% post-industrial recycled PLA. This PLA boosts the sustainability of an already eco-friendly material without compromising the print quality or printing characteristics. With a matte black surface finish this recycled PLA filament is the perfect filament for everyday applications.
What is post-industrial recycled PLA?
Post-industrial recycled PLA refers to a type of recycled polylactic acid (PLA) that comes from industrial waste generated during the manufacturing process of PLA-based products. Instead of using new raw materials, post-industrial recycled PLA is produced by collecting and reprocessing excess PLA materials, trimmings, or defective PLA products that would otherwise be discarded as waste.
The recycling process involves sorting, cleaning, and processing the collected PLA waste to remove any impurities and then transforming it into new PLA pellets or filaments that can be used to produce new PLA-based products. By using post-industrial recycled PLA, companies can reduce their environmental impact by minimizing waste and the consumption of new resources. This contributes to a more sustainable and eco-friendly approach to manufacturing and product development.
