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. Printing with the material between the recommended 195 and 215 °C does not affect the material’s antibacterial properties.
