This are the characteristics for PLA/PHA :

-PLA/PHA filament for 3D Printing is malleable, making it harder to break and more flexible than PLA alone.

-PLA/PHA filament is less prone to warping during printing.

-PLA/PHA filament printed objects have a more opaque finish.

-PLA/PHA (polylactic acid with Polyhydroxyalkanoate) is a plastic made of renewable sources.

-It is biodegradable as the PHA is produced by bacterial fermentation of sugar or lipid and the PLA is based in corn, tapioca and sugar cane.

-Temperature can vary between 190 and 230 °C.
