HI, I want to make 3D filament with plastic recycling and it’s perfect, but i want to do with PLA, Where i can find this kind of plastic (It’s use for what) and how i can identify it. Thanks for your help
PLA is mostly used to make 3D fillament and biodegradable cutlery and cups. This type of plastic might be hard to find and get any huge quantity of.
But if you do want to search for this type of plastic, it will be marked with a
SPI 7 (“others”)
PLA will not biodegrade unless composted with 2/3 organics, and above 140deg F – strictly an industrial process.
The hobbyist 3D printer people would love to recycle their scrap – a lot of scrap.
There are a few people trying to recycle their PLA into non-virgin filament.
Thanks, for your answers.
