PolyWood™ is a wood mimic filament without actual wood powder, this removes the risk of nozzle clogging that is closely associated with other wood filaments. PolyWood™ is made entirely with PLA using a special foaming technology. It exhibits the same density and appearance as wood

Jam-Free™ - Jam-Free™ technology improves the heat stability of Polymaker’s PLA filaments with softening temperatures over 140 °C. As a result, Polymaker’s PLA filaments show minimal softening in the “cold end” and can melt rapidly once entering the heating zone, leading to excellent printing quality with zero risk of nozzle jams caused by heat creep.
Stabilized Foaming™ - Stabilized Foaming™ technology is used to produce foamed filaments, whose foam structure can survive the printing process and be inherited by the printed parts. This enables light weight 3D printed parts with unprecedented surface finish.
Light Weight - PolyWood™ is a first of it's kind light weight foam PLA designed to mimic the weight of real wood! PolyWood™ is 35- 40% lighter than regular PLA, only weighing 0.8 g/cm³!
Attractive Surface Finish - The Stabilized Foaming™ technology in PolyWood™ delivers an incredible matte surface finish which makes it a unique material choice for aesthetic applications such as architectural models, figurines, gaming dioramas, decoration or lifestyle parts.
Wood with no mess - Instead of using wood to mimic wood, Polymaker developed a unique foaming technology to deliver a material that mimics wood structurally. PolyWood™ is composed entirely of polymers. The Results? Excellent print quality without the risk of nozzle jams associated with other wood filaments.
Uncompromised Quality - With Polymaker's leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing, you can rest assured that PolyLite™ PLA will produce beautiful, reliable and accurate printed parts.
