eSUN PLA-LW 1kg 1.75mm White
ePLA-LW (Lightweight PLA) was specifically developed for drones, airplanes, and cosplay. Developed by eSUN, the ePLA-LW has more stable interlayer bonding than wood, and the foaming rate and strength can be manually adjusted by increasing or decreasing the temperature.
3D printing has come a long way since its inception. What used to be a small niche market of enthusiasts and commercial users has turned into a worldwide technological tool and hobby. While there are many options available, choosing the suitable material is crucial in creating items that will be durable and last long-term.
ePLA-LW by eSUN: The eSUN White ePLA-LW (Lightweight PLA) was specifically developed for drones, airplanes, and cosplay. Developed by eSUN, the ePLA-LW has more stable interlayer bonding than wood, and the foaming rate and strength can be manually adjusted by increasing or decreasing the temperature. What makes the eSUN White ePLA-LW ideal for aircraft is its use of foaming technology. This helps achieve lightweight, low-density PLA parts suitable for flight. Since the foaming volume ratio is an impressive 220%: a roll of ePLA-LW can be printed equivalent to 2.2 rolls of regular PLA. The increasing volume starts between 210-270°C, an increase of up to 1.2 times can be expected, while the printing extrusion rate can be reduced by 45% to make lightweight parts. Using the same model at the same speed, a lower stall speed and lighter wing load is produced by using a lightweight PLA. With models such as airplanes, weight reduction can significantly improve performance.
