PLA Antibacteria

General Information

BigRep PLA Antibacteria is a bacteriostatic material that inhibits the growth of bacteria and other harmful microbes by an enzymatic reaction. The active metal ion incorporated in the PLA polymer to achieve this effect does not negatively impact PLA’s mechanical or printing properties. It is an ideal material for use in hospitals, beauty salons, shops, or anywhere where users wish to prevent the presence of harmful microorganisms. Printing the material at recommended 195 to 215 °C does not affect the material’s antibacterial properties.
