This tomato filament is a bio-composite material of natural origin, versatile, compostable and 100% made in Italy.
It is a 3D printing filament obtained from the waste from tomatoes, which are added to a PLA (polylactic acid) base, giving it greater elasticity.
It is has a higher resistance to deformation compared to PLA.
The tomato filament has a red colour (slightly dotted with green) and gives excellent aesthetic, olfactory and tactile sensations.
