PolyLite™ PLA is a high-quality PLA designed for reliability and ease of printing.
Polymaker PolyLite™ PLA Information
What is Jam-Free™ Technology?
Polymaker Jam-Free™ Technology increases the heat resistance of the filament itself (not the printed part) to 140˚C. This prevents any jamming issue due to the hot end heat creep issue.
Heat creep is the process of heat spreading irregularly throughout your hot end, softening the filament before entering the melting chamber and jamming the filament by making it expand in the cold end.
The increase of the filament heat resistance from 60˚C to 140˚C ensures a Jam-Free experience.
(Note the printed part will have the same heat resistance as regular PLA: ~60˚C)

How strong is PolyLite™ PLA?
PolyLite™ PLA is based on a high molecular weight PLA from Natureworks, which makes it one of the most rigid PLA material on the market.
You can check the Young’s modulus and bending strength data of PolyLite™ PLA in its TDS, which represent its rigidity, and compare it with other materials of our portfolio.

When handling filament the end should be:
- On the spool
- In your hand
- Loaded in the printer
Do NOT let the end of the filament go when handling it as you can cause the spool to tangle. Filament cannot tangle on its own. Returns/refunds will not be issued if you tangle a spool. Due to how filament is spooled onto the roll it is impossible to get a tangled spool from a new spool.
