Recycled! Compare to Black PLA

“Since 2013, Protopasta has valued quality, reliability, and creativity. We seek to reduce waste in our production and build relationships in our community.”

We’ve taken many steps over the years to ensure our commitment to these values. The next phase of this commitment is finally here: Recycled PLA! We’ve collected our high-quality waste stream and turned it into high-quality recycled filament. 

  • An original, one-of-a-kind Protopasta Recycled PLA filament
  • Made from our very own rescued waste stream
  • Compare to Black PLA, but with some sparkles based on waste stream
  • Fully compounded to ensure consistency throughout a batch
  • Designed & produced by Protoplant exclusively for you

Recycled PLA colors may resemble other colors or appear totally unique depending on the waste source of a given batch. In either case, the color is indeed unique and unknown before we make the filament (this is why we opted for numbers, rather than names). When gone from our shelves, the same color will never be made again. We are mixing 100kg batches and fully compounding our materials to ensure color consistency within the batch. While we are overwriting the color of some PLA to make it black (with glitter still showing through), we are seeking to maintain color whenever possible. So far, we’ve ended up with many beautiful colors!

Recycled PLA works well

I've been making good parts from the black recycled PLA for months now. No issues with it and saving a few bucks is always welcome. Hopefully Protopasta will keep producing it.

Prints smooth like buttah

This recycled PLA prints beautifly! The batch I received has a hint of sparkle and a satin finish.
