PolyTerra™️ 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 sold a tree is planted to give back to the earth.
Is PolyTerra™ PLA biodegradable?
The short answer is no in a way that it would not degrade when throwing it on the side of the road. PolyTerra™ PLA requires specific conditions to degrade which can be achieved in industrial composting facilities.
We developed a formula which can degrade faster than regular PLA while maintaining excellent printability which allows a step forward towards improving the end of life of our PLA in our industry.
