Our rPLA is a bioderived material originally produced from corn starch but recycled again from food packaging waste sourced in the Benelux region. It’s easy to print with, durable with excellent print quality. Our natural PLA is 100% recycled material, while black and white filaments contain 2% or less colouring masterbatch. This material has been tested by the lostboyslab and is used in full production without any hassle. Reflow rPLA sold by lostboyslab exhibits excellent adhesion to printing bed, ease of printing and superior layer adhesion.
PLA or Polylactic acid is a bioderived plastic and the leading filament choice for creators. Our materials original source is cornstarch. While PLA can be broken down at the end of life, it does not naturally decompose at speed without industrial composting assistance. That way, by taking PLA food packaging and creating rPLA filament, we’re extending it’s life by another cycle. Our rPLA filament prints with accuracy and consistency on all setups, exhibiting flawless surface finish and print quality to produce highly visual and durable finished products.
