Are you looking to buy Polylite PLA Dual Colour Silk Filament in Australia?
PolyLite™ PLA Dual Silk is a dichromatic silk PLA 3D printing filament that is manufactured
with two different colours to give models a striking dual-coloured effect. It is the perfect
choice for creating unique, eye-catching multi-color prints with an elegant surface finish that
hides the layers. Made with high-quality materials, PolyLite™ PLA Dual Silk combines the
luxury and elegance of silk with the versatility and printability of Silk PLA.
- Dichromatic Silk Finish - PolyLite™ PLA Dual Silk is a high quality dual colour
filament that offers a beautiful and dynamic colour transition effect for your 3D
prints. The silk finish of this filament is achieved with no post-processing required
and adds a smooth touch of elegance to your 3D prints, making them suitable for a
variety of applications such as jewelry, home decor, or fashion accessories.
- Compatibility In Mind - PolyLite™ PLA Dual Silk is an easy-to-print filament and
compatible with a wide range of popular extrusion based 3D printers. (Heated bed
may be required in some cases). With its excellent print quality and outstanding
visual effect, PolyLite™ PLA Dual Silk PLA filament is the perfect choice for your next
stand-out 3D printing project.
- Easy to Print - PolyLite™ PLA Silk works well with many common printing surfaces
and a heated bed isn't strictly required but may be recommended with some build
plate surfaces or geometries for better results (up to 60°C).
- Uncompromised Quality - PolyLite™ PLA Silk filament is a PLA-blend made
with the highest quality ingredients including Ingeo® from Natureworks. Natureworks
is a world-leading biopolymers supplier based in the USA with a portfolio of high
quality raw PLA materials produced from rapidly renewable plant resources.
Combining Polymakers innovative R&D technologies, compounding and extrusion
systems with Natureworks Ingeo® resins produces a reliable 3D printing filament
to print beautiful and accurate models.

- Please note it's not possible to make a Silk PLA filament with resistance to heat creep; this is why
PolyLite™ PLA Dual Silk does not feature the Jam-Free™ technology implemented in other
PolyLite™ PLA filaments. This may affect compatibility with printers that suffer from heat creep and
for these users we recommend considering a PLA filament which features Jam-Free™ technology.
On some printers it may be possible to solve heat creep issues with a different hot end design.

Tips for printing dichromatic filament
- Dichromatic / dual colour filaments print the best when the outside perimeters of the part
are all printed in the same direction for each layer, not all slicers do this by default. You can
view the direction of the tool path in slicer preview.
- PolyLite Dual Silk PLA is wound carefully to ensure correct colour alignment on the spool.
To achieve the best result, make sure the filament doesn't twist in the feeding path. If the
filament twists during printing, the position of the two colours will shift throughout the print
resulting in a striping effect. Some users find this effect desirable while others don't. Some
level of twisting is common with most 3D printers on the market but excessive twisting
may be more likely with some printers depending on their spool mount, hot end and extruder
design. Using a high quality dual geared direct drive extruder and mounting the spool in a
straight position that avoids twisting can help reduce this striping effect.
- Smaller melt zones are better for dichromatic / dual colour filaments. This effect works
because our 3D printers print with a laminar flow and so the two colours don't mix. Volcanostyle hotends or CHT-style nozzles can produce mixing that reduces the dual-colour visual
- It can be useful to print an alignment coin to tell you exactly where the colour change will
occur. The angle will be different for every printer setup, but we have found that if the printer
and spool stay in the same orientation, the alignment doesn't change from spool to spool.
Storage: It is recommended to store PolyLite™ PLA Dual Silk in the PolyBox™ to prevent
moisture absorption which will lower the quality and the mechanical properties of the print. If
the filament has absorbed moisture it can be dried at 55˚C for 6 hours in a convection oven.
