Verified that the base material is their PLA/PHA. They are looking to see if they can get the SDSs updated.

@adam I haven't used HIPS or heard of any problems with it for awhile.

@oliver @karrad have there been any updates to this issue? Is this something we need to spend time on?

adam added a comment to T4089: Verify ColorFabb ____fill PLA vs PLA/PHA.

So... looks like all SDSs make mention of a PLA blend with proprietary additives which has covered copolyester blends in the past. I think for the purposes of the SDS the PHA is considered a proprietary additive that they do not need to disclose. I will touch base with colorFabb to see if they have updated materials available that we can use. It might be something that we need to update in our copy, but they are likely not (based on my experience with SDS) required to disclose all the other plastics used in the blend provided they have fully disclosed health and environmental concerns/procedures.
Side note: bambooFill is discontinued and it's very unlikely that we can get an updated SDS to a material they are no longer producing.

@benmalouf we have currently only tested XSTRAND-GF30PA. We are waiting on an updated SDS for colorFabb's PA-CF. If everyone agrees, and it looks like they do, we can bring in more options.

Agreed we should add a couple abrasive mats to go with these tool heads. What have we been testing so far?

karrad updated subscribers of T3169: Abrasive Material to Bring on with Release of Banded and Dingy.

I feel if we are advertising these as abrasive resistant tool heads, we will need to carry and support at least one filament for release. Adding in marketing for this ticket.

benmalouf updated subscribers of T2862: Verbatim PLA Packaging Change.

I think we should take new pictures, but it's not urgent since we'll probably have mixed inventory for a many months. I will add a note to the product page that "packaging my vary but filament has not changed" and remove the picture of the old packaging from the page. Can someone confirm whether or not the reel itself is unchanged?

@benmalouf I just want to confirm before we close this task as resolved - you don't need to take pictures of the new packaging?
