Closed Loop Plastics' Nebula Black is an upcycled high-impact polystyrene 3D printing filament made entirely from post-consumer plastic cups and lids and colored with a little help from Carbon Black pigment. Each spool is produced in Long Beach, CA, where plastic waste from the community is given new life as 3D filament for makers, engineers, and enthusiasts around the world. The finished product is an engineering-grade, structural filament that is great for sustainable prototyping and can easily be used with any printer, providing a black matte satin finish.
