The 3D Printing Polyamide is in the form of an exceptionally fine powder. The material is both durable and flexible; long-lasting and resistant to most chemical products. The powder can be mixed with glass (GF-PA) or aluminum particles (Alumide) to improve its technical properties. No backing structures are used for printing with this material, and it results in accurate details with pleasant outlook. The untreated parts printed with polyamide have an abrasive appearance as well as a porous structure, but can be easily treated and impregnated to improve the surface and to achieve waterproofing. Sintered polyamide parts serve as functional prototypes, and are often used for the end consumer items.
This is the most widespread plastic in our everyday life. Very durable, yet flexible material, this is most often the choice for engineering and professional applications. Its flexibility and precision make it ideal for the creation of assemblable parts that can be used for prototypes as well as for spare parts and end products. The material lasts up to 90-100 degrees Celsius and is easy to work with – sanding, polishing, and painting. ABS is a solid material and has a high impact resistance, making it ideal for engineering and functional prototypes, conceptual modeling, or end products.
ASA is a professional polymer compound with high performance and thermal stability. Durable and flexible, this material is particularly suitable for parts requiring UV resistance and durability against various weather conditions. It has a good appearance and high precision when printed, making it a choice for many end-user parts engineers, parts for infrastructure applications, and automotive applications.
A biodegradable material, an excellent choice for prototypes that do not come with special requirements. It is harder than ABS, inflexible and its properties worsen if left in the sun for long. Its temperature resistance is low – up to 50 ° C. Good choice for functional and conceptual prototypes. Extremely accurate, pleasant to touch. This material is mainly used with non-professional machines, with supporting structures of the same material, which affects the surface quality and the accuracy of the dimensions.
In stereolithography (SLA), liquid photopolymers are used to build the intended objects. Solid Fill has a broad variety of photopolymers – hard, flexible, rubber-like – with the purpose of covering as many prototyping requirements as possible. This type of materials and the printing technology used in producing them provide serve as a guarantee of high accuracy, great outlook and detail precision. They are used for the design of conceptual and functional models, as well as for the producing of prototypes for subsequent processes such as Vacuum casting. They are not suitable for external use as they are sensitive to UV rays.
Hard and non-transparent material with a high level of surface precision used in 3D Printing with Poly Jet technology. This polymer is employed in general applications with enhanced mechanical properties and the ability to withstand bending. It is used when conceptual prototypes with outstanding outlook and accuracy are needed, as well as for making prototypes for subsequent processes such as Vacuum coating.
This is a hard material resembling ABS, with the feel, presence, and qualities of injection molded plastic. In the end, you receive parts with stunning white color and a smooth surface that withstand high temperatures. This material is used when conceptual and functional prototypes are needed, as well as for making prototypes for subsequent processes such as vacuum casting.
