ALGAE Filament General Information. ALGIX 3D ALGAE filament is the perfect material for many FFF 3D printing needs, including prototyping, educational and design or artistic projects inspired by nature. ALGAE filament is made from nuisance algae, thus helping keep ecology in balance through remediation. The remainder of the filament is made from PLA, a nontoxic resin made of lactic acid derived from plant sugars. ALGAE filament has a unique texture and color palette inspired by nature. Using ALGAE filament for your prints allows you to use a more sustainable material (validated by a third party Life Cycle Assessment) and print at a lower temperature, which requires less energy. This filament will run best at an extrusion temperature of 175-190°C (2.85mm filament usually prints at the higher end of this range). ALGIX 3D Information. ALGIX 3D is a part of the ALGIX family of brands. ALGIX is a distinguished leader in compounding and additives for the bioplastics industry.
