P>proto-pasta magnetic iron PLA responds to magnets and behaves similarly to Pure iron, even to the point of rusting in the right environment! magnets “stick” to this Material like they would to iron or steel; it is not a magnet itself and will not “stick” to other metal. Magnetic iron prints beautifully with a matte Gray finish similar to cast metal. The density is about 50 percent higher than standard PLA giving printed parts a bit more “heft” and a less plastic feel.
in filament form, fepla is slightly more brittle than standard PLA and requires extra care when handling. Processing is Comparable to standard PLA. No heated bed required. Process may be less consistent on smaller nozzles and/or bowden Type machines. We frequently print using direct-drive systems with 0.4mm nozzles, though suggest 0.6mm and 190-210c (standard PLA or a bit cooler) for the best experience. This filament is more abrasive than standard PLA. Be prepared to replace your nozzle and do 1st layer adjustment. Try a wear resistant and/or larger diameter nozzle for increased service intervals.

As another user has said, it is stiff and abrasive. It's difficult to spool and the larger loose coil in which it was delivered doesn't fit well around smaller spools without a lot of tangling. The vendor knows this, but provides no spool, nonetheless, which is the only reason for four stars. If judging on quality alone, I'd give it five. Considering ease of use, it gets four.
Printed a calibration cube at 210/50 degrees and around 30 mm/s speed, layers stick well to each other and to the bed even without glue.
Only downside is that it does not have a spool so I needed to clear one and due to not fitting it well I was worried about printing at higher speed.
Saving money to buy the bigger spool of this filament.
I'm waiting for my wallet to cool-down after Christmas before I order a proper spool (500g in this case). This filament is definitely worth a try and produces a really neat finish. I will certainly be trying another Makerbot with this stuff as the rusting effect on the bot should look great.
