Nanovia PLA Flax : Flax fibre reinforced

5,50 103,05  exl. VAT

Nanovia PLA Flax is entirely bio sourced, biodegradable, and certified without endocrine disruptors. The non-abrasive flax fibres, sourced in the north of France, improve the material’s mechanical properties and reduce PLA‘s warping tendencies. By varying the temperature it’s possible to brown the fibres and alter the part’s colour.

Combining PLA’s ease of printing with flax fibers’ mechanical properties, Nanovia PLA Flax will allow you to create mechanical 3D prints with ease.

variation de couleur selon température d'impression

Alter Nanovia PLA Flax’s colour by changing the extrusion temperature of your printer.

This biosourced composite 3D filament, certified endocrine disruptor free, can be browned by varying the printing temperature up to 260 °C.

Nanovia’s PLA Flax’s fibers are harvested and transformed in France, specially selected for additive manufactoring. The organic look of this filament makes it ideal for decorative objects and toys.

Nanovia PLA Flax is also availble in pellet form for injection molding and 3D pellet printing.


  • Easy to print
  • Biocourced and biodegradable
  • Certified endocrine disruptor free

Application recommendations


  • Store Nanovia PLA Flax in a dry and dark location, if possible with a desiccant.
  • In order to guarantee good printing conditions dehydrate Nanovia PLA Flax at 50 °C for 4 hours or longer, when the spools has been exposed to moisture for an extended period.


  • Extrusion temperature : between 200 and 230 °C
  • Heated bed temperature : between 50 and 70 °C

Post treatment

  • For an outdoor usage, we recommend that you paint your print or submit them to an anti UV treatment, such as our Nanovia smoothing solution.

Health and safety


  • We recommend printing Nanovia PLA Flax in a room equipped with air extraction or by using appropriate breathing equipment.

Post treatment

  • We recommend wearing standard safety equipment during the post treatment of your prints made with Nanovia PLA Flax.

Endocrine disruptor test:

1 Method OEDT – SERPBIO Laboratory. Sample : NANOVIA 3D filament PLA Flax.

Study: Measuring the activity of the human estrogenic receptors expressed in S. cerevisiae (SW303.1B)

Every measurement is reproduced 3 times independently with the different contents of the tested sample

Results: The obtained data shows that the tested product does not influence the measured activity

Note on the ratio of circulating plasmic œstradiol: With menopaused women / with men: * [4×10-11M – 2×10-10M] with pre menopaused women (excluding ovulation): [1×10-10M – 5×10-10M] / with women (ovulation): [2×10 -9m] * a value is considered critical when it exceeds [2×10-11M].

CONCLUSION: The tested material can be considered absent of endocrine disruptors.
