PLA (Polylactic Acid) is one of the most commonly used materials in 3D printing. It is a biodegradable and environmentally friendly thermoplastic derived from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugarcane. PLA is widely used due to its ease of printing, low warping, and minimal odor during printing.
What Is PLA Filaments
When it comes to PLA filaments, there are various options available in terms of colors, finishes, and additives.
Manufacturers often experiment with different formulations to achieve specific characteristics and aesthetics. One such characteristic is the surface finish, which can range from glossy to matte.
A “Semi-Matte” PLA would imply a material that falls in between a fully matte and a glossy finish. A semi-matte surface can provide a smoother appearance than standard matte PLA but with reduced reflectivity compared to glossy PLA.
As for the color “Black,” black PLA filaments are quite common and widely available. The color black is popular for various applications, including prototyping, artistic projects, and functional parts.
D printing material manufacturer ColorFabb has launched a new 3D printing wire. Compared with other PLA, black semi-matte PLA provides a smoother surface finish. Because it does not contain fibers, the wire achieves a high-quality finish. The new black semi-matte PLA can be used without having to adjust printer settings or parameters, which makes it easier for users to try.
In addition, ColorFabb also provides two black matt finish wires: XT-CF20 and PA-CF Low Warp. However, these materials require hardened steel nozzles for printing.
It is worth mentioning that the black semi-matte PLA provides a better aesthetic, while reducing the gloss of most PLA 3D printing. Therefore, the surface highlights are less obvious, and the final appearance is cleaner and more luxurious.
The new 3D printing materials can be printed at the usual PLA temperature and settings. This is a reliable and easy-to-use material similar to other PLA materials.
