ProtoPasta Composite PLA - Rustable Magnetic Iron filament

  • $ 36.99


Prints like PLA, behaves like metal! Experience our most "attractive" material yet!!!

Proto-pasta Rustable Magnetic Iron Metal PLA Composite is actually ferromagnetic.  It responds to magnets and behaves similarly to pure iron!  Encapsulated in plastic, the iron maintains a stable matte, cast metal finish as printed, but can be rusted when desired.  Here is why Proto-pasta Iron PLA is so interesting:

  • Weighted feel with 1.5x the density of standard PLA
  • Rustable to create modern artifacts in a few easy steps - instruction here
  • Attracts magnets (neodymium type recommended for strongest attraction)
    • Induction at magnetic saturation about 0.15 Tesla
    • Relative (to air) Permeability - between 5 and 8 independent of frequency up to 1 MHz
    • Permeability - between 62E-7 and 100E-7 H/m independent of frequency up to 1 MHz
  • More thermally conductive than standard plastic
  • Prints easily like PLA with less nozzle wear than Steel or Carbon Fiber
  • More filament for your money - 2x the length of Bronzefill (500g Iron =1kg Bronzefill)
