Made from recycled materials, recycled rPLA offers a sustainable alternative to regular PLA.
Recycled rPLA (recycled polylactic acid) refers to a type of filament that is produced by recycling and reprocessing PLA (polylactic acid) plastic. PLA is a biodegradable and renewable thermoplastic material derived from plant-based sources, such as cornstarch or sugarcane.
Recycled rPLA is created by collecting and processing discarded or waste PLA products and filament scraps, then transforming them into new filament for 3D printing. This recycling process helps reduce waste and environmental impact by giving new life to PLA materials that would otherwise end up in landfills or incineration.

Please note that these values represent typical ranges for the technical properties of recycled rPLA. However, it's important to note that the exact properties can vary depending on the specific recycling process and the quality of the recycled material. It is advisable to refer to the manufacturer's specifications for precise information on a particular recycled rPLA filament.
