Do your Ultimaker Material specialists actually know what is in the PLA you sell?

This has been buzzing around in my head. So many suppliers of PLA (et al) don't have a clue what's in their product. Especially if they farm out their filament requirements and product responsibility to China.

They talk as if they know, but they don't. It's all sales pitch and sell sell.

I imagine Ultimaker do their filament research, but do you actually know what's in the filament you sell? In this case I'm referring to PLA - the poorer person's filament.

My apologies. I just found your excellent resource on materials. Couldn't see the wood for the trees!

We actually put quite some effort into these resource materials and we have a professional and well informed materials team :) We did an AMA a while back with @TomHe, perhaps also interesting to read :)

If there is anything else you would like to know/learn, feel free to ask!
