PLA or Polylactic Acid is a biodegradable and carbon-neutral plastic made from corn, tapioca root or sucar cane. In our products we use NatureWorks 4042D resin which extrudes at around 180º C to 220º C and produces no toxic fumes. It is safe to handle and use even for kids and often advertised as food-safe. Please be aware that our material contains colorants and is not produced in a controlled food-safe environment. As such we do not recommend to use it in extended direct contact with food, especially not liquids. There are options to cover the material with lacquer that are considered food-safe.
Notice: A recent study by the Illinois Institute of Technology has show that the printing process produces ultrafine particle even from PLA and suggest that caution should be used when using such devices indoors. Please make sure you have proper ventilation, an enclosed printer or maybe even exhaust vent.
