Features of Polymaker PolyLite PLA
Polymaker Jam-Free™ Technology
Polymaker's Jam-Free™ Technology helps prevent your filament from jamming in the nozzle causing nozzle clogs that could potentially ruin you hotend. This technology works by increasing the heat resistance of the filament itself to 140°C. This keeps your nozzle from jamming by reducing the problem of heat creep.
Heat creep is when your hotend heats the filament, and the heat creeps up the filament. This causes melting outside the desired area, known as the melt zone. This leads to your printer pushing more filament into the hotend then it thinks, causing jams.
The increased heat resistance reduces heat creep, allowing you to print without having to worry about nozzle jams.
Note: The increased heat resistance of the filament does not lead to increased heat resistance in the printed part. Final part heat resistance for PolyLite PLA is similar to most PLAs: around 60°C.
Super Rigid PLA
Polymaker PolyLite PLA is based on a PLA manufactured by Natureworks. It has a high molecular weight, making it one of the most rigid PLA filaments on the market. PolyLite has a Young's modulus of 2636 ± 330 MPa (a measure used to represent rigidity).
