Materials

The 3D Printing materials we use at Lancashire3D

We’re proud to provide an environmentally responsible range of 3D Printing materials to our customers. Our Plastic range is produced by Filamentive, a market leader in recycled 3D filaments.

ABS Plastic

Strong material

Wear resistant

Heat tolerant

Up to 64% Recycled

ABS is a durable material that is wear resistant with a high heat tolerance (100 °C).

PLA Plastic

Hard material

No warping

Biodegradable

Up to 55% Recycled

PLA is a hard but brittle material. It’s great for low stress applications or prototypes.

PETG Plastic

Industrial strength

No warping

Food safe

67% Recycled

PETg is a food safe industrial plastic.

Carbon Fibre Composite

Strong material

Wear resistant

Very rigid

80% Recycled PET / 20% Recycled Carbon Fibres

Carbon Fiber Reinforced PET is a strong, hard and wear resistant material.

ASA Plastic

Strong material

Wear resistant

UV resistance

Up to 50% Recycled

ASA is the perfect engineering filament for those prints that need to withstand external environments.

Polycarbonate (bioPC)

Industrial strength

Chemical resistance

Heat tolerant

BPA Free

Polycarbonate typically contain Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical strongly linked to serious health and environmental impacts. As an ethical brand, we’re pleased to announce that our bioPC is BPA-free

Engineering Grade PLA

Strong material

Wear resistant

High dimensional accuracy

Up to 50% Recycled

An engineering-grade plastic, with performance comparable to ABS. Features a heat resistance of 95°C< (after annealing)

Polycarbonate / ABS (PC-ABS)

Strong material

High impact resistance

Heat tolerant

Wear resistant

PC-ABS the perfect material for mechanical parts and tools, which should be light and strong and show minimal wear after prolonged use. It has a high heat tolerance (108 °C).

Wood / PLA Composite

Looks like wood

Feels like wood

Can be varnished

Up to 50% Recycled

Smells like wood, looks like wood, feels like wood!

PLA (with metallic flakes)

Hard material

No warping

Non-toxic flakes

Up to 10% Recycled

All the same qualities of our PLA but with a stunning sparkle thanks to metallic flakes!

Standard Resin

High detail

Smooth surface finish

Strong material

Customisable colours

3D print strong, precise concept models and prototypes that bring your ideas to life with Standard Resin.

Tough Resin

High detail

Smooth surface finish

Sturdy results

Withstand stress / strain

Tough Resin’s high impact strength and compliance make it perfect for parts that need to return to their original shape after force is applied over a brief period.
