Polylactic Acid PLA


Polylactic acid PLA is a polymer that derives from natural sources like corn. PLA is biodegradable (when composted correctly), thus is often used in consumer products like cups, bags and containers as well as dissolvable medical implants.


Furthermore, PLA experienced a rise in popularity when 3D printing came to the market as PLA is food safe and easy to work - even for beginners in the 3D printing area.
