Are you looking to buy Polymaker PolyTerra PLA+ 3D Printer Filament in Australia?
PolyTerraTM PLA+ is a strength enhanced variant of Polymakers eco-friendly and
sustainable PolyTerraTM PLA formulation; combining sustainability with good mechanical
properties. While the original PolyTerraTM PLA was engineered to offer a matte surface finish
and easy-support removal, PolyTerraTM PLA+ features a semi-gloss surface finish and is
optimized to deliver better strength & layer adhesion than PolyTerraTM PLA. It is a
sustainable product sourced naturally and for every spool produced a tree is planted to give
back to the earth.
- Strength Optimized Formula - PolyTerraTM PLA+ is based on the same eco-friendly
formula as PolyTerraTM PLA but has been optimized for strength and inter-layer adhesion.
- Improved Ductility - Like PolyTerraTM PLA, PolyTerraTM PLA+ delivers improved ductility
which is less brittle (Charpy Impact) in X-Y axis than standard PLA formulations.
- Glossy Surface - This newly developed formulation renders parts with an attractive slight
gloss surface finish which offers a nice effect for aesthetic models.
- Bioplastic PLA Formula - PolyTerraTM PLA+ is a newly developed material from
Polymaker called FBC (Fully Bio Compound). It is a compound of PLA bioplastic and
naturally occurring biocomposite. PLA is biodegradable under industrial composting
conditions however the degradation rate is very slow in ambient temperatures.
- Polymakers FBC formula contains less PLA plastic to degrade making PolyTerraTM PLA+
a more environmental friendly material. PolyTerraTM PLA+ is a strength optimized version
of the FBC formulation featuring a different ratio of PLA and bio-organic compounds as
- Eco-sustainable Packaging & Carbon Offset – Polymaker are committed to helping
combat plastic waste, as such PolyTerraTM PLA+ comes on a fully recycled cardboard
spool with recycled labels and box. Furthermore, Polymaker will plant one tree in
Australia through the ONETREEPLANTED association for every locally sold spool of
- Compatibility / Jam-FreeTM- PolyTerraTM PLA+ is compatible with a wide range of 3D
printers and is manufactured with Polymakers Jam-FreeTM technology which leads to
excellent printing quality with zero risk of nozzle jams caused by heat creep .
- PolyTerraTM PLA+ works well on most printing surface with a thin layer of glue stick
applied, no heated bed is required but can sometimes be used at 40 - 50°C for better
results (maximum 60°C).
- Uncompromised Quality - PolyTerraTM PLA+ filament is made with the highest quality
ingredients including Ingeo® from Natureworks; a high quality PLA material produced
from rapidly renewable plant resources in the US. 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.
Heat creep is the the process of heat spreading irregularly throughout the hot end, one common example is with all metal hot end
designs. Once heat creeps towards the cold end, the PLA filament softens prematurely in the cold end and expands resulting in a jam.
Polymakers Jam-FreeTM technology increases the heat resistance of the filament itself (not the printed part) to 100 ̊C which prevents the
filament from prematurely softening in the cold end and can still melt rapidly once entering the heating zone.

Safety Data Sheets:
Disclaimer: The typical values presented in Polymakers data sheet are intended for
reference and comparison purposes only. Due to the nature of 3D printing they should not
be used for design specifications or quality control purposes.
Storage: It is recommended to store PolyTerraTM PLA+ in the PolyBoxTM 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.
