Polylactic Acid (PLA): The Environment-friendly Plastic
3D Printing Hub
NOVEMBER 8, 2017
One of the major advantages of PLA is its biodegradable nature and the sustainable process by which it is made, making it the environmentally friendly choice of plastic. Under the right circumstances, PLA can break down into its natural elements in less than a month in contrast to the centuries it will take for traditional plastics to decompose. It is typically available in the market as thin films for thermoforming, plastic pellets for injection molding, or 3D printable filaments.
