The filament manufactured with active foaming technology with which you will be able to create light and low density parts.

A light weight PLA filament ideal for light and low density creations with which to reduce the weight of printed parts by up to 50% compared to conventional PLA thanks to active foaming technology.

A new material has landed in Recreus to add to the wide portfolio of products. The new PLA-LW (Light Weight) filament.

A light weight PLA filament ideal for light and low density creations with which to reduce the weight of printed parts by up to 50% compared to conventional PLA thanks to active foaming technology.

Its potential

It is an ideal filament for creating light, low density and resistant parts. By reducing the flow in the printing of this material, we can print up to two and three times more parts than with a conventional PLA spool.

Highlights

  • Light weight
  • Low density
  • Material that spreads farther
  • Easy to print
  • Resistant and less brittle
  • Great surface finish
  • Matt finish

Applications

A clear example of the application of the PLA-LW is in the manufacture of air models. Thanks to the foaming of the material at high temperatures we can reduce the total weight of the model and therefore reduce the wing load of the aeromodeller enabling an improvement in its flight qualities.

Another example is in the use of material when making complements or accessories for ‘cosplay’, as they will be lighter and more bearable.
