Product information


PolyTerra️ PLA is a bioplastic based 3D printing filament designed from the ground up to create the next generation of PLA, providing ease of use, printing quality, speed and reliability. It is a sustainable product sourced naturally and for every spool produced a tree is planted to give back to the earth.

Matte Surface & Fun Colours - Print parts with a beautiful matte surface finish and unleash your imagination with PolyTerra™ PLA's fun and vibrant colour range. PolyTerra™ PLA renders models with excellent surface quality and features great overhang and bridging capability.

Optimized for Support - PolyTerra™ PLA has been engineered with excellent support removal properties, enabling users to more easily break away support or rafts from the surface of their prints.

Easy Sanding - PolyTerra™ PLA is softer and easier to sand in comparison to regular PLA filaments and can be easily painted.

Bioplastic PLA Formula - PolyTerra™ PLA is Polymakers newly developed bioplastic PLA material made with NatureWorks high quality Ingeo PLA and compounded with naturally occurring elements. Ultimately these innovations have enabled Polymaker to reduce the plastic content of PolyTerra PLA by 15-20% without compromising performance. Polymaker has also run a compostability test, certified to ISO 14855-1, with a third party laboratory that revealed thanks to the organic compounds in PolyTerra PLA, printed parts composted faster than a comparable PLA material under the right conditions.

Eco-sustainable Packaging & Carbon Offset – Polymaker are commitment to helping combat plastic waste, as such PolyTerra™ 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 PolyTerra™ PLA.
Improved Ductility - PolyTerra™ PLA delivers improved ductility which is less brittle than standard PLA formulations.

Compatibility / Jam-Free™- PolyTerra™ PLA is compatible with a wide range of 3D printers and is manufactured with Polymakers Jam-Free™ technology which leads to excellent printing quality with zero risk of nozzle jams caused by heat creep . PolyTerra™ PLA works well with common printing surfaces with no heated bed required but can sometimes be used at 40 - 50°C for better results (maximum 60°C).

Uncompromised Quality - PolyTerra™ 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.
