PlaPlus – high temp PLA that withstands up to 100C temp

Hi all,

finally we have added High Temp resistant PLA to our range.

At normal conditions it is slightly softer than our standard range, it doesn’t snap, glass transition temp is few degrees lower than standard PLA. To Achieve high temp resistance the prints have to be temperature treated. all it takes is 30minutes @ 80C. The cup in the picture was annealed in about 2 minutes by pouring boiling water into it.

The range of colours at this stage will be limited. The filament is not glossy like standard PLA – it is like velvet. THe price is only couple $ more than standard PLA – $35.95/kg spool

Helping good cause

Hi all,

this time we are not announcing new product or service.

We would like to get everyone onboard and encourage everyone to support our good friend Mat Bowtel, who is helping people without anything in return.

Mat is 3D printing hands and arms for people who are not as fortunate as most of us.

Mat started a campaign that if successfully funded would allow him to help people free of charge that can’t afford it themselves.

So lets dig deep and provide support to Mat.

He has also started Patreon account for those who would like to donate every month as well

thanks a lot to everyone

TPE and TPU update

Hi all,

we would like to inform you that we are changing TPE grade. it is going to be more like Ninjaflex – slightly harder. New grade is going to be Shore A 85 (it used to be 80A). some of the filament is still softer stuff. New grade has better mechanical properties and will be more forgiving on your printers 🙂

Also we have added new colour – Silver. The stock should be updated shortly.

On the other news – from next week you will be able to buy Aurarum TPU filament. it is going to be available in Natural, Black, Red, Silver, White and Blue colours to start with.

Most of you have experienced TPU from other suppliers. For those who never tried it – it is even harder wearing stuff than TPE. Very flexible and very difficult to break.

We hope you will enjoy the new colours and new material type.

don’t forget to visit our store at www.aurarum.com.au we have growing list of new items – including some RC toys.
