FormFutura 1.75mm Silk Gloss PLA


Silk Gloss PLA is an easy to print modified PLA type of 3D printer filament that has a stunning smooth and silky surface finish. Silk Gloss PLA has been enhanced with added polymers that give the material its high level of light dispersion and reflection. This makes Silk Gloss PLA the perfect 3D printer filament for printing objects with a lot of detail and that need to stand out by its colour appearance.
