ZYLtech PLA filaments have taken the best aspects of PLA filament, including renewability, biodegradability, and adaptability. PLA, known as Polylactic Acid, is the most widely used plastic filament in 3D printing. PLA filament is a bioplastic due to the fact that it is produced from renewable natural resources such as tapioca and corn starch products. As a biodegradable material, so it is much better for the environment in contrast to petrochemical-based alternatives. 

Reliability

ZYLtech filament is all about reliability. When you need a stronger and more durable functional part, you need to know you are printing with a material you can trust and depend on. ZYLtech’s NO. 1 goal is to provide you with the most reliable and the strongest 3D printer filament at the best price possible.  

Quality Control

ZYLtech PLA 3D printer filament is meticulously tested for quality and consistency. We use top quality US based raw materials and additives for reliable results time after time. Our 1.75mm PLA filament tolerances of ±.05mm make for steady feed rates and reliable extrusion on both Bowden and Direct Drive setups!   

Affordability

ZYLtech PLA filaments are designed with price in mind; we created an affordable solution for every 3D maker. Whether you are a pure beginner with a finite budget, or an additive manufacturer looking to save on cost of production, ZYLtech PLA is the filament to get any job done.

Color Consistency:

It's important to us at ZYLtech that all of our 3d printer filaments have consistent color in each and every roll that comes off the production floor.  Our chemist and quality control department work closely to ensure that our formulas produce reliably reproducible results every time.

Pro Tips from the ZYLtech Print Lab:

  • Leveling for PLA filament:
    • If you use the paper method to level, we usually suggest leveling as you would for PLA then setting a Z offset of +.5-1mm.
  • PLA does not like to “squish.”
  • First Layer Adherence:
    • We have found that 0% fan for the first 2 layers gives the best chance to avoid curling/warping.
  • Layer Adhesion:
    • PLA 3d printer filament will adhere to itself more efficiently when printed with little to no parts cooling fan.  If you are working with fine detail or bridging, you will have to experiment with parts cooling fan settings for best results.
  • Stringing and retraction:
    • You will typically need to increase the retraction distance and retraction speed vs printing with PLA.  You will need to experiment with stringing and retraction test models to dial in your machine’s settings.

    Great PLA

    Great PLA. In general I'm mid-way through my 5th roll of filament without any issues. Thanks!

    Wish they would go back

    Posted by Victor Escutia on Aug 16th 2022

    I used to love zyltech black because kg per kg it was the best value. Now the formulation makes it one of the most frustrating filaments to use on my system. The filament is often too brittle out of the vacubag and it tangles itself when it does break. I wish they would go back to the non-natureworks, or atleast make the filament non brittle in sections, which seems to be an issue with their formulation or extrusion. I also remember the spooling being neater and the current spooling is just awful, resulting in tangles as mention above.

    Gloss Black PLA

    Posted by Robert Smith on Aug 11th 2022

    it prints amazing. The only issue I've had so far is it broke just before the extruder on my ender 3, but that was user error I believe. I would highly recommend your product to everyone.
