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 produced a tree is planted to give back to the earth.

PolyTerra™ Features
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.
Eco-sustainable Packaging – 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.
Optimized for Support - Polymaker have engineered PolyTerra™ PLA with excellent support removal properties, enabling users to more easily break away support or rafts from the surface of their prints.
Jam-Free™ Technology - Polymaker have implemented their Jam-Free™ technology into PolyTerra™ PLA to improve the heat stability of the filament with softening temperatures over 100 °C. As a result, PolyTerra™ PLA filament shows minimal softening in the “cold end” and can melt rapidly once entering the heating zone, leading to excellent printing quality with zero risk of nozzle jams caused by heat creep.
Bioplastic PLA Formula - PolyTerra™ PLA is a newly developed PLA material from Polymaker called Fully Bio Compound (FBC) - a bioplastic mainly made with high quality US-made Ingeo PLA high quality Ingeo PLA and compounded with naturally occurring elements. Ultimately these innovations result in an excellent, easy to print 3D printing material which uses less PLA plastic without compromising performance.

Improved Impact Resistance - The next generation formulation of PolyTerra™ PLA delivers parts with good mechanical properties, outperforming regular PLA filament in impact resistance. The improved impact resistance of PolyTerra™ PLA makes it a great choice for 3D printing hobby and education projects.
Compatibility In Mind - PolyTerra™ PLA is compatible with a wide range of 3D printers including models from Ultimaker, Makerbot, FlashForge, Creality, Monoprice, Lulzbot, Prusa Research, Raise3D, Tiertime, and other popular extrusion based 3D printers (Heated bed may be required in some cases). 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.

Disclaimer: The typical values presented in Polymakers data sheet are intended for reference and comparison purposes only. Due to the nature of 3D printing they should not be  used for design specifications or quality control purposes.

Storage: It is recommended to store PolyTerra™ PLA in the PolyBox™ to prevent moisture absorption which will lower the quality and the mechanical properties of the print. If the filament has absorbed moisture it can be dried at 55°C for 6 hours in a convection oven.
