Easy to use.
PLA (polylactic acid) is the most practical material to use when venturing into 3D printing for the first time. It is easy to work with, provides excellent adherence and is specifically indicated for long lasting prints.
It solidifies quickly.
During the printing process, each layer must have cooled sufficiently before the print head deposits another layer of melted filament on top. Given our PLA solidifies quickly it provides better print quality for small-volume pieces without sacrificing speed.
Thermal stress is produced by temperature inequalities in various points of an object. In 3D printing, this results in the bulging of the first layers due to the thermal difference between the bed (room temperature) and the filament (about 200-220ºC). The thermal-stress deformation of our PLA is minimal, which helps reduce warping even without heated bed.
Using only the typical adhesion methods such as fixative spray or bar, tape or PEI beds, our PLA offers excellent adherence even without a heated bed.
Biodegradable, ideal for domestic use.
In BQ, we make our own PLA in Huesca (Aragon). Our spools hold 100% PLA of maximum quality. This completely biodegradable and compostable material is produced without the use of petroleum derivatives. PLA is generated by the polymerisation of lactic acid originating from the fermentation of vegetable-derived sugars. Unlike other materials, it does not give off unpleasant odours making it ideal for domestic use.
The printing temperature range is between 200 and 220ºC.
Our PLA melts in the hot-end starting from 180ºC, however, due to possible variations in the temperature measurement and regulation of your printer’s hot-end, we recommend printing at above 200ºC.
The ideal print temperature is 210ºC.
Through subjecting our PLA to exhaustive tests we have ascertained that the best print quality/speed ratio is achieved at 210ºC.
PLA Fluoride collection
More fun, more striking
A chromatic range inspired by the Pop Art movement, which will take you back to the vinyl and neon of the sixties. Our most irreverent collection is ideal for your casual prints or for decorative items: combine small fluoride pieces with neutral spaces, or give a more vibrant and energetic touch to any setting.
