Title: About PolyTerra by PolyMaker - the eco friendly filament. Watch on youtube: https://youtu.be/Wvmf7qf_368
The video is a review of PolyTerra PLA, the new filament by PolyMaker. This is PolyMaker's first step to switch to carton spools. Price of PolyTerra is low, compared to their earlier products (approximately 20$ in US and 20EUR in EU). PolyTerra™ PLA is a bio plastic compound which main polymer is PLA as well as an organic compound which makes it more eco-friendly. For every spool purchased they will plant a tree in the region where the spool was bought. The box and spool are made from of recycled carton.
In this video I am testing other properties from specifications like: matt surface, does it easier to remove supports, is warping reduced, tensile- and layer adhesion tests, brittleness (impact- and bending tests).
