Anybody ever tried to print PLA on whatsoever film/surface/substrate. I am desperately looking for PLA films but is difficult to find in the market something doesn`t cost a fortune. Anybody some suggestion? wisdom?
At the moment PLA is employed in:
+medicine > price range to 1000 euro per sqm....due to production process, mechanical properties & standards , very out of range
+food > bags of salad, daily consumable, fresh food use packaging in some kind of PLA...the quality available in re-using the material is poor, often undesirable and some tests doesn`t really see promising
I tried to print also on:
+ fabric: due to the texture of the fabric itself, small objects become a limit (under 5 mm), therefore I am addressed more toward an homogeneous continuous material, like some kind of plastic
+LDPE and PP: PLA stick on it but poorly, not very advisable
+acrylic: PLA stick on it but weakly, I noticed instead that soft PLA stick better on it, probably due to the material micro-structure itself, anyway still not convincing
someone has better understanding? or chemistry knowledge? or see the light at the end of the tunnel :?
