May be worth trying PETG. The nozzle temp for printing is about 230deg. So significantly higher than PLA.

It’s easier to print with than ABS as the thermal expansion is much less. I print with a bed temp of 60deg and it sticks.

Only issue is fine stringing. If you use a Bowden system then increase the retraction setting to reduce the problem.
