Iron-filled Metal Composite PLA Prints like PLA, behaves like metal!

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. 1.75mm, 500g 8" diameter spool Usable on most PLA-compatible printers, such as Lulzbot, Makerbot, FlashForge, Dremel, Ultimaker, Printrbot, and more!

Made in the USA!
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

  • 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)

**This filament is more abrasive than standard PLA. Be prepared to replace your nozzle and do 1st layer adjustment. Try a wear resistant and/or larger diameter nozzle for increased service intervals.

Processing is comparable to standard PLA. No heated bed required. Process may be less consistent on smaller nozzles and/or bowden type machines. We frequently print using direct-drive systems with 0.4 mm nozzles, though prefer 0.6 mm and 190-210C (standard PLA or a bit cooler) for the best experience.
