Polylactic Acid (PLA): The Environment-friendly Plastic

3D Printing Hub

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. However, this also renders PLA unsuitable for high temperature applications such as containers made for holding hot liquids.
