Ultimaker Tough PLA is a technical PLA (polylactic acid) material with a toughness similar to ABS. It is ideal for printing functional prototypes and tooling at larger sizes – without fear of delamination or warping. Ultimaker Tough PLA offers the same safe and easy use as regular PLA.

With an impact strength similar and higher stiffness compared to Ultimaker ABS, Tough PLA is less brittle than regular PLA and gives a more matte surface finish quality. Heat resistance is similar to standard PLA filaments, so printed parts should not be exposed to temperatures above 60 °C. Ultimaker Tough PLA is more reliable than ABS for larger prints, with no delamination or warping.

Ultimaker Tough PLA is also compatible with Ultimaker support materials (PVA and Breakaway), giving full geometric freedom when designing parts.

Printer Compatibility

Ultimaker Tough PLA can be printed on the Ultimaker S5, Ultimaker S3 and Ultimaker 3 family printers using an AA print core. On other Ultimaker 3D printers you may use this material experimentally, although no official print profiles are supplied. Tough PLA can be used experimentally by selecting PLA as a starting profile.

Storage & Drying

It is recommended to store Ultimaker Tough PLA material in a resealable dag with desiccant away from sunlight. This helps avoid moisture absorption from air and long-term exposure to humidity which can compromise material quality and performance.

Technical Data

The 3D printed test specimens were printed in the XY plane, using the fine quality profile in Ultimaker Cura 3.1, an Ultimaker 3, a 0.4 mm AA print core, 90% infill, 0.1 mm layer height, and 205 °C nozzle temperature.
