ColorFabb filament based on PLA/PHA bioplastic blend available in a wide range of colours. 

ColorFabb is a company based in the Netherlands that develops and produces filament for 3D printing.

The PLA/PHA filament is a filament for FDM/FFF 3D printers, it is made of a mixture of bioplastics, as the name suggests, and is less brittle than other PLAs, and its final quality is surprising.

This ColorFabb filament is based on PLA (polylactic acid) a biodegradable polymer obtained from natural resources, such as starch extracted from corn, beets and wheat, and PHA (Polyhdroxyalanoate), a bio-polyester produced in nature by the action of bacteria by fermentation of sugar or lipids, is a biodegradable plastic and is used in the production of biopolymers.

This mixture of bioplastics gives the filament greater strength than PLA alone. Furthermore, taking into account the nature of the two polymers, we can say that PLA/PHA by ColorFabb is a 100% biodegradable filament.

PLA/PHA is a strong, high quality filament that is also available in a wide variety of colours.

The recommended printing temperature for printing PLA/PHA filament is 195-220℃ and at a printing speed of 40 - 100 mm/s.

It is recommended that the print bed temperature is between 50-60 Cº.

As for the build plate, PLA/PHA works well on both heated and unheated build platforms. For those users printing on an unheated build platform, we advise applying adhesive tape to the build area, such as Kapton Tape.
