Aurarum PLA 3D Printer Filament – Grey 1.75mm 1Kg
AUD31.95 Inc GST
Aurarum PLA is the easiest material to print with ? A good starting point for a successful print is to have your hot end around 200 degrees and your hot bed around 55 degrees.
All AURARUM filaments are 100% Australian made right here in Melbourne, Victoria.
PLA is a biobased polymer derived from natural resources and offers a significant reduction in carbon footprint compared to oil-based
plastics. Luminy® is a high heat, high viscosity, PLA homopolymer.
Compared to standard PLA, these PLA homopolymers have higher melting points and an increased rate of crystallization.
Best settings for successful printing:
|Printing / Extrusion temperature||200 to 230 degrees|
|Bed Temperature||20 to 60 degrees|
Luminy® L175 has a biobased content of 100% (confidence level 1) and a biobased carbon content of 100% according to EN16785-1 under certificate number DIC-00001. Luminy® L175 is certified 100% biobased according to ASTM D6866 under the USDA Biopreferred program.
PLA can be printed on a much cooler heated bed or if you have a well levelled bed maybe even no heat at all.
|Transparency (colour dependent)||2/10 to 8/10|
Like any 3D printing a well ventilated space is preferred and good storage is the key to a good shelf life of your filament.? All our filament is shipped in a vac sealed bag containing a small desiccant satchel.? When opening your bag a clean cut along the top edge will allow you reuse that bag again if you do not finish the entire reel in 1 go.
|Reel Size||200h x 65w|
|Weight / metres||1kg / 340 metres (approx)|
|Filament width||1.75mm +/- 0.03mm|
|Spool||Plastic, Vacuum packed|
Composting of organic waste helps to divert organic waste from landfill or incineration. Composting is a biological process in which organic wastes are degraded by microorganisms into carbon dioxide, water and humus, a soil nutrient. Luminy® PLA polymers are in compliance with the EN-13432 standard. Luminy® L175 has been certified compostable by TUV Austria (OK Compost S478) and by European Bioplastics (Seedling 7W2030) up to a thickness of 2.3 mm. As the compostability of the end product is also dependent on the geometry of product, it is the responsibility of the manufacturer of the end product to ensure compliance with the regulations.
FOOD CONTACT STATUS (from manufacturer based on EU market regulations)
In the European Union, Luminy® PLA polymers are compliant with EU commission regulation 10/2011 of 14 January 2011 (and amendments) on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food. Lactic acid is considered a dual use substance, since lactic acid is approved as a food additive (additive number E270). There are no SMLs or SML(T)s for the ingredients used to produce Luminy® PLA. The regulation does include an migration limit of 10 mg/dm2 on the overall migration from finished plastic articles into food. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer of the final product, when intended as a food contact product, to determine that the use of the product is safe and also suitable for the intended application. While it is TotalEnergies Corbion’s conclusion that the above mentioned polymers are permitted, it is the final product which must meet the given regulations and the manufacturer should take responsibility to check if the final product is in compliance with these regulations.
In the United States of America, Luminy® PLA as supplied by TotalEnergies Corbion has been evaluated and was found to be suitable for use in food contact applications. On 30 November 2018, FCN 001926 as applied for by TotalEnergies Corbion to the FDA became effective. It is included in the list of effective notifications for FCNs on the website of the FDA. The evaluation performed was in line with the requirements of Section 201(s) and Section 409 of the Federal, Drug and Cosmetic Act, and Parts 182, 184 and 186 of the Food Additive Regulations. Luminy® PLA neat resin is approved for all food types and conditions of use B through H.
One of the best things about PLA is the ease of post processing. Sanding and painting is made simple making it easy to get a very finished and polished look even from the roughest of prints.
Aurarum PLA is printer agnostic and as such is suitable for all brands including Flashforge, RepRap, Creality, Artillery, MakerBot, Ultimaker, Makergear, Up!, Voron, Bamboo and many others.
