PolyMax PLA by PolyMaker is a superior PLA with added strength for mechanically demanding applications. Prints like regular PLA with high printing quality and stability.
PolyMax™ PLA is a 3D printing material with excellent mechanical properties and printing quality. PolyMax™ PLA has an impact resistance of up to nine times that of regular PLA, and better overall mechanical properties than ABS.
PolyMax PLA 3D printing filament is compatible with most desktop FDM/FFF printers and has superior mechanical properties. It is optimized specifically for printing stability, exhibits minimal heat expansion with no hazardous gas or warping and can be used reliably on many "ABS-only" printers; producing excellent results with dual-extrusion printing.
The impact strength of parts printed using PolyMax PLA is 9 times that of regular PLA-printed parts and 20% higher than ABS-printed parts, making it an ideal replacement for ABS.
See figures below for more details:
Extremely Tough : Regular PLA is a very brittle material, which greatly limits its range of applications. PolyMax™ PLA was designed to change this. Featuring increased impact strength of up to 9 times that of regular PLA and 20% better than ABS, PolyMax™ PLA is a sure winner when it comes to toughness. So if you are looking for a material that can withstand your mechanically demanding tasks, PolyMax™ PLA is up to the challenge.
Uncompromised Quality : The good mechanical strength of PolyMax™ PLA is achieved with no compromise in printing quality. As PolyMax™ PLA is also produced with Jam-Free™ technology you can be certain you will get high quality prints with excellent strength while still enjoying the ease of printing PLA.
ABS? No More : Still printing ABS while trying to endure the odour and potential health risk? With PolyMax™ PLA you can get rid of that potentially hazardous ABS and still achieve the same structural strength with even more benefits such better printer compatibility, easier printing, less warping, no hazardous odours, and in many cases even better mechanical properties.
STORAGE: One large resealable bag with slider + an extra desiccant pack are included with every spool. The bag and extra desiccant are a great way to safely store your filament spool when not in use. It keeps your filament bone dry & free from any dust or dirt particles, so it's always ready for your next print.

I used to think that the 'premium' filaments weren't worth the cost, but this stuff is worth every penny. If you're tired of your PLA prints cracking or snapping, especially when under any kind of mechanical strain, you'll love the PolyMax high strength formulation. It will bend long before (or if it ever) breaks. The high ductility does mean that removing support material can be a little more labour intensive (e.g., around small details it tends to get a bit 'gummy'), but this is a minor trade-off.
