 Polymaker PolyMax PLA Tough Ductile Filament

PolyMax™ is a family of advanced 3D printing filaments produced with Polymaker’s Nano-reinforcement technology, to deliver exceptional mechanical properties and printing quality. PolyMax™ PLA is an incredibly easy-to-print filament with improved mechanical properties, making it an excellent alternative to ABS.

PolyMax™ PLA features Polymaker's Jam-Free™ technology and Polymaker's Nano-reinforcement technology:

Jam-Free™ - 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.

Nano-reinforcement - Nano-reinforcement technology is applied to produce filaments with excellent mechanical properties and printing quality. It dramatically improves the toughness of the material by increasing its impact resistance.

Features

Superior Toughness - Regular PLA is a very brittle material which greatly limits its range of applications. PolyMax™ PLA exhibits a vastly superior impact strength up to 9 times that of regular PLA and PLA+ materials with excellent ductility.

Easy-to-print - The good mechanical strength of PolyMax™ PLA is achieved with no compromise in printing quality. PolyMax™ PLA prints easily with no heated bed or chamber required.

Quality Control - With Polymakers eight step quality control process and rigorous in-house testing, you can rest assured that PolyMax™ PLA 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™) to maximizing 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.

Nano-reinforcement Technology

Nano-reinforcement technology is applied to produce filaments with excellent mechanical properties and printing quality. It dramatically improves the toughness of the material by increasing its impact resistance.

Jam-Free™ technology

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, PolyMax™ 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 PolyMax™ PLA exhibit normal thermal properties and heat resistance.

Industry Leading Quality Control

PolyMax™ 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.

Packaging

3kg Spool: PolyMax™ PLA is carefully wound on Polymakers 3kg spools.
Resealable Bag: PolyMax™ PLA is packaged in a resealable bag to ensure your filament is moisture free. Like all other PLA filaments, PolyMax™ PLA is hygroscopic so we recommend using this bag for filament storage.
