Polylactic acid, commonly known as PLA, stands out as a thermoplastic monomer sourced from renewable and organic materials like corn starch or sugar cane. Here are a few key benefits:
LESS ENERGY: PLA production uses 65% less energy than producing conventional plastics.
LESS POLLUTION: This material generates 68% fewer greenhouse gases and contains no toxins.
RECYCLABLE: PLA melts at low temperatures, which allows the reuse of lost parts, easily converting them into new objects.
BIODEGRADABLE: Under certain industrial conditions, in composting plants.
SUITABLE FOR DIVERSE USES: Safe for use in applications such as food containers and medical devices.
LIGHTWEIGHT: Objects printed using this material are extremely light, making them very convenient when it comes to fashion accessories.
