colorFabb Vibers PLA Pastel Purple
This is a new development which is close to home and close to our heart. In cooperation with the Dutch company Vibers, we’ve developed a biobased formulation including 10% Elephant grass. This type of grass grows incredibly efficient and catches 4 times the amount of CO2 per acre compared to a regular European forest. It’s grown on fallow soil not used for food cultivation and doesn’t need additional irrigation. What nature provides is enough for this plant to thrive. Due to the leaves being discarded overtime the soil receives important nutrients and revitalizes the soil. Once a year the crop is harvested, but only the tops, therefor the biodiversity remains intact.
The filament prints incredibly smooth, with soft matte looking surfaces and great haptics. Each PLA Vibers print has a third less (!) carbon footprint compared to regular PLA.The material will become available in more earth tone colors which supplement the sustainable look & feel of this unique material. Adding color to this formulation is what makes it standout from all the other fiber filled materials in the market. If you look closely you’ll see a hint of the cellulose fibers on the surface of each 3D printed part.
This filament comes on a carboard spool made from recycled cardboard to further minimize the use of single use plastic.
