Polylactic Acid (PLA) with 10% Hemp Fibers (from the bark of the cannabis plant) Old meets new; The Hemp fiber one of the oldest and strongest natural fiber. PLA is a recently developed biodegradable plastic derived from renewable organic resources (corn starch or sugarcane). PLA is recyclable but can also be biological decomposed in composting plants. Bringing (compounding) these two materials together creates a strong but biodegradable and compostable new material. The Hemp fiber technique is based on the products of Hemplyne.
The 3D4MAKERS PLA Hemp Filament has unique properties because it does not come into contact with water during the production process and is directly packaged in a vacuum packaging. These properties make the 3D4MAKERS PLA Hemp Filament particularly suitable for usage in FDM and FFF 3D printers. The material has an excellent adhesion between layers which results in great improvement of the impact resistance, strength, durability and the printing process.
For the best results we advise users of the 3D4MAKERS PLA Hemp Filament to use a different printing nozzle than the standard nozzle usually provided with 3D printers. A nozzle with a diameter of at least 0.5mm will give the best printing results.
The PLA Hemp Filament produced by 3D4MAKERS does not meet any European regulations concerning plastic materials and articles coming into contact with food.

To get the best results while printing we advise you to keep the 3D printer in a room where there is hardly any draft and/or temperature fluctuations. Keep the 3D printer out of the sun. This cannot be a room where people sleep.
When the 3D printer is not being used it is important to keep the 3D4MAKERS PLA Hemp Filament in a bag and stored in a cool, dry and dark place until it is used again.
