PolyLite™ is a family of 3D printing filaments made with the best raw materials to deliver exceptional quality and reliability. PolyLite™ covers the most popular 3D printing materials to meet your everyday needs in design and prototyping. PolyLite™ PLA is a high-quality PLA designed for reliability and ease of printing.
PolyLite™ PLA features Jam-Free™ technology:
Jam-Free™ technology improves the heat stability of Polymaker’s PLA filaments with softening temperatures over 140 °C. As a result, Polymaker’s PLA filaments show minimal softening in the “cold end” and can melt rapidly once entering the heating zone, leading to excellent printing quality with zero risk of nozzle jams.
Excellent Compatibility: High Quality PLA filament compatible with an incredible range of extrusion based 3D printers.
Easy to Print: Works well with all common printing surfaces such as the blue tape, Kapton tape, glass, BuildTak, etc. No heated bed or 3D printer chamber required but can be used (up to 60°C)
Safe and clean: Polymaker use only PLA resins from Nature Works for the filaments manufacture. PolyLite™ PLA is also plasticizer free.
Affordable Technology: Polymakers industry leading filament quality and Jam-Free technology now available at an affordable price
Uncompromised Quality: With Polymaker's leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing, you can rest assured that PolyLite™ will produce beautiful, reliable and accurate printed parts every time.

All Polymaker products are formulated by Polymakers experienced R&D team to provide new optimized and innovative material solutions for the industry. Whether it be improving printing reliability & experience (Warp-Free & Jam-Free™) or to maximise material performance and functionality (Optimized & Nano reinforcement). Polymakers patented technologies and expansive portfolio have continued to provide empowering solutions to customers internationally, from Automotive manufacturers and Construction companies right down to the entrepreneur and household maker.
Polymakers patented Jam-Free™ technology dramatically improves the heat stability of their PLA filaments, by combining the latest development in biopolymer formulation and advanced polymer processing technologies. As a result, PolyLite™ PLA filament exhibits a high softening temperature of more than 140 °C, over 80 degrees higher than other PLA filaments currently on the market. So while printing, the filament will never soften in the “cold end” and can melt rapidly once entering the heating zone. This leads to extremely smooth printing and no more nozzle-jams caused by heat-creep!
Polymakers Jam-Free™ is especially helpful when using:
- 3D printers with cheap or older extruder designs.
- 'Higher Temperature' 3D Printers.
- Dual Extrusion 3D Printers (as the filament sits idle for long periods of time)
Please note that Polymakers Jam-Free technology increases the the softening temperature of the filament, not the heat resistance of printed parts. Parts printed in PolyLite PLA exhibit normal thermal properties and heat resistance.
Industry Leading Quality Control
PolyLite™ PLA like all other Polymaker materials is manufactured using state-of-the-art polymer processing technologies and equipment. Polymakers rigorous eight-step quality control process ensures industrial standards of reliability for a consistent customer experience.
Tolerance: Polymakers custom developed extrusion, control and monitoring solutions to ensure filament tolerance and roundness meet Polymakers strict quality standards.
Reliable Mechanical, Colouring & Printing Properties: Every batch of filament products are tested to ensure all quality specs (melt flow, softening point, mechanical, diameter, round-ness) are met.
Drying & Vacuum Sealing: Before packaging, all Polymaker filaments are dried to a moisture level of < 0.1% to ensure the best printing quality and are vacuum sealed to protect the filament from moisture. All vacuum packaged products are left for 24 hours before boxing to ensure they are leak-free.
Transparent Spool: PolyLite™ PLA is carefully wound on Polymakers 1kg transparent spools. With the transparent spool, it is easy to see exactly how much filament is left for your next printing project.
Resealable Bag: PolyLite™ PLA is packaged in a resealable bag to ensure your filament is moisture free. Like all other PLA filaments, PolyLite™ PLA is hygroscopic so we recommend using this bag for filament storage.
