Spectrum PLA Silk is a PLA-based filament for additive manufacturing with colour concentrates which imparts the satin texture effect to printed items. It is another material with unique aesthetic properties. The surface satin texture of printed items largely reduces the visibility of layers on the side surface of printed items. Using a specially development pigment, it is possible to retain the classic properties of PLA, i.e. the simple and efficient printing, while obtaining a very low shrinkage rate and relatively high tensile strength. Thus the material is designed for those who appreciate simple printing and very high aesthetic properties. Spectrum PLA Silk guarantees the following properties of printed items:
- Reduced visibility of layers on the side surfaces of printed items,
- Satin shine on the entire surface of printed items,
- Maintenance of all the mechanical strength parameters of the standard PLA.
With the above-mentioned properties, the applications of Spectrum PLA Silk are mostly oriented towards decorative art and interior design, where the aesthetic qualities prevail, while the 3D print-specific artefacts have maximally reduced visibility.
