No additives or modifiers! Naturally safe, naturally strong!
Why is having no additives or modifiers in a filament so important? Most PLA materials require the use of additives and impact modifiers to make them stronger and less brittle, but the use or composition of these additives is usually not fully disclosed... While polymers such as PLA may be a naturally safe and non-toxic, the additives may not be! This can translate into a filament that is not truly 100% biodegradable in addition to unknown effects of fumes/smell and overall safety. While this is usually not a concern with quality brand name filament, it is especially important to keep in mind when purchasing from unknown vendors on amazon, ebay etc. Our EcoTough PLA completely retains the natural safety and biodegradability of PLA while still being significantly stronger than others! As an added bonus to having a neat/non modified material, EcoTough PLA prints extremely smooth and consistent.
