ecoPLAS 3D201  - The Sustainable Choice

Massive Dimension has taken significant strides towards sustainability by introducing ecoPLAS 3D201. ecoPLAS is a manufacturing-ready biodegradable and compostable limestone (CaCO3) based compound with PLA as the base polymer. 

Key Benefits

  • Lower Carbon Footprint: PLA base and limestone filler
  • Cost-Efficiency: ecoPLAS tends to be more economical without compromising on quality.
  • Durability: The strength and resilience are on par with conventional PLAs, making it a great choice for various applications.
  • Surface Finish: Matte surface 

Polypropylene (PP) Materials - Carbon and Glass Fiber Filled

PP is one of the most versatile plastics, used in everything from automotive parts to packaging. Massive Dimension's PP materials come with high tensile strength and excellent heat resistance. Filled with Carbon Fiber or Glass Fiber for adding strength. 

Unique Features

  • Strength: Very stiff with the added Carbon or Glass Fiber
  • Chemical Resistance: Suitable for applications that require resistance to solvents and acids.
  • Low Density: PP has a low density, making it ideal for lightweight components.
  • Low Power Consumption: Can be printed without a heated bed, without a heated build environment, and does not need to be dried before printing.
