Proto-Pasta's Magnetic Iron PLA is truly one-of-a-kind! This magnetic filament allows for so many unique printing opportunities. Make a game, make fridge magnets, heck, make your own science experiments!
This filament actually functions like a real magnet, and has similar qualities like pure iron - you can even make it rust for an aged look.
We recommend a printing temperature that is about 10-20 degrees lower than you would print with standard PLA.
To get a rusty look, "polish" your finished print with a wire brush to expose more of the iron particles to the air. Then, submerge the piece in a salty solution for about 2-3 days. You can soak longer if you would like a more very rusty finish.
