How much hight temperature can LW-PLA-HT handle?
There’s unfortunately no simple answer to this question because it really depends on many other factors such as thickness of the material, the amount of foaming you’re utilizing and external conditions.
Standardized test methods did not reflect the significant difference as observed in our real world tests. So as we like to say, the proof is in the pudding:

Our test showed the new generation LW-PLA-HT filament did not deform as quickly nor as drastically as the original LW-PLA. In fact it took less than 2 minutes before the LW-PLA deformed during our test, it was so fast it took as by surprise. Even after the full 60 minutes the new LW-PLA-HT did not reach similar lever of deformation.
