The materials for many of the above works come from the eSUN PLA family.

 

PLA (poly lactic acid, polylactic acid) is a new type of biodegradable material, which can be made from starch raw materials extracted from renewable plant resources (such as corn). The production process is pollution-free and can be degraded due to its excellent printability. , Is currently a kind of material used more in 3D printing.

 

PLA

 

With the development of the industry, eSUN has developed more 3D printing filaments with different appearances and different performance characteristics on the basis of PLA, which are widely welcomed by industry users. Specifically, it can be divided into general materials, industrial materials, and functional materials.

 

1.General Material

1. PLA

 

Application: decorations, cosplay

Introduction: PLA is an environmentally friendly material that is easy to print, with smooth print surface. Compared with ABS, PLA has higher rigidity and PC-like strength, and does not require a closed chamber, with low shrinkage, no warp or cracking, and can print large-size models. It has no irritating smell during printing, with FDA certification, safe and environmentally friendly to use; it can be used for early concept models, rapid prototyping, and metal parts casting.

 

2.PLA+

Application: machinery, electronic appliances, automobiles, decorative parts, cosplay

 

Introduction: It’s PLA based modified material, with easy printing characteristics of PLA, and improved toughness and interlayer adhesion. PLA+ is an environmentally friendly material that is easy to print, with a smooth surface; balanced strength, rigidity, toughness, and strong impact resistance, making it very suitable for printing functional parts; it has passed FDA certification and is safer to use; it can be used for early concept models and rapid prototyping .

 

3.PLA+ Refilament

Application: machinery, electronic appliances, automobiles, decorative parts, cosplay

 

Introduction: PLA+ refilament can be recycled, energy saving and environmental. It  can reduce production and transportation costs, reduce carbon emissions, and help environmental protection.

 

4.eSilk-PLA

Application: toys, decorations

Introduction: It has a silky texture, and the surface is smooth with no layer lines. It’s modified based on PLA material and has the easy printing characteristics of PLA.

 

5. Silk rainbow

Application: toys, decorations

Introduction: It has the texture of colorful and gorgeous rainbow silk, smooth surface and no layer lines. This product is modified based on PLA material and has the easy printing characteristics of PLA.

 

6. Stars PLA

Application: toys, decorations

Introduction: This product is modified based on PLA material, which adds the appearance of gorgeous luminous starry sky. PLA material is environmentally friendly and easy to print.

 

7. Glow-in-the-dark Rainbow PLA

Application: toys, decorations

Introduction: This product is modified based on PLA material, which adds a colorful and brilliant luminous rainbow appearance effect. PLA material is environmentally friendly and easy to print.

 

8.eTwinkling-PLA

Application: toys, decorations

Introduction: It has a flashing appearance effect. This product is based on PLA material with fine flash powder added, and has the easy printing characteristics of PLA.

 

9.eMarble-PLA

Application: toys, decorations

Introduction: It has an imitation marble appearance, and the appearance of the printed product is similar to the real marble statue. This product is based on PLA material and has the easy printing characteristics of PLA.

 

10.Wood

Application: model aircraft, decorations

Introduction: It has a wood-like appearance, matte and fine finish without layer lines, and is easy to paint. The product is based on PLA material and has the easy printing characteristics of PLA; it adopts micro-foaming technology, is lightweight, and has a density of 0.7g/cm³.

 

 

2. Industrial materials

1.ePLA-LW

Application: RC plane, ship model, cosplay

Introduction: A material specially developed for RC planes, with stable interlayer bonding, and the foaming rate and strength can be controlled by adjusting the printing temperature. Using active foaming technology to realize lightweight, low-density PLA parts, the foaming volume ratio is 220%, and the density is as low as 0.54g/cm³. The foaming makes the layered pattern basically invisible, and the surface of the printed item is matte and delicate, which is easy to paint. Under the same model and at the same speed, the use of lightweight PLA enables RC planes to have a lighter wing load and a lower stall speed, which can greatly improve the performance of the model.

 

2.ePLA-ST

Application: machinery, consumer electronics, automotive

Introduction: It has the characteristics of high impact resistance, high elongation at break, high bonding strength, and high printing accuracy. Toughness surpasses PETG, it has the good printability of PLA; strong and tough, suitable for printing prototypes of mechanical parts with toughness and precision requirements.

 

3. Functional materials

1.e4D-1

Application: home, wear, robot, toy

Introduction: Thermally induced shape memory material, modified based on PLA material, easy to print; it can be deformed by force in hot water, and can be fixed and deformed at room temperature and can be stored for a long time, when placed in hot water again , the part can quickly return to the original shape.

 

Modification of PLA materials can achieve multiple possibilities and provide users with more 3D printing materials with different performance characteristics and appearances. These materials adhere the advantages of PLA, are environmentally friendly and easy to print, and have a wide range of applicability. .

 

Insist on the innovative research and development of materials is what eSUN has been doing. In the future, we will continue to persevere, pay attention to industry development trends, and continue to provide users with materials with excellent performance to meet market needs.

 

In 2021, eSUN launched a new product ePLA-LW based on the patent of polylactic acid foam, which is very popular among domestic and foreign RC plane enthusiasts; soon, Glow-in-the-dark Rainbow PLA will also be launched, please look forward to it!
