The first filament developed by Colorfabb for FDM 3D printing. It is a harder and less brittle PLA than the classic. Through a process called compounding, a polyhydroxyalkanoate is added to a carefully selected blend of PLA. The result of this process is a completely homogeneous blend, which is the basis for the Colorfabb PLA / PHA filament.
The PLA / PHA filament is available in 30 colors, characterized by great brilliance and excellent opacity.
With higher toughness and better inter-layer adhesion when printing. PLA / PHA from Colorfabb is a premium filament.

Our PLA / PHA works well on both heated and unheated printing plates When printing on a cold printing plate we recommend applying blue tape, or alternatively one of the specific adhesives.
The rough surface of the tape, or the adhesive layer created by the fixer, will provide sufficient adhesion for the first layer, so that you can print with almost no deformation.
When using a heated build plate, a plate temperature of 50-60°C is recommended.
For Colorfabb PLA / PHA filament it is recommended to use 100% fan cooling for best detail and performance on complex protruding surfaces.
Large models tend to exhibit warping at the corners, printing with less cooling can reduce warping.
