New possibilities of laser sintering by e-coloring

CIPRES – Your service provider for colored parts

The perfect complement to e-Manufacturing is e-coloring. Today, the color concept is being used more and more for the dyeing of laser sintered parts in polyamide and enables a higher efficiency for the nylon laser sintered parts. e-coloring does not just include dyeing rather all finishing solutions that make your parts real. With this innovative, environmentally friendly technology, every plastic laser sintered part is delivered in the desired color and quality. The parts retain all geometric, mechanical and thermal properties.

Our color concept offers …

… a big color scale.

… a high lightfastness in all color shades.

… water resistance.

… good compatibility.

… very high color fastness in the different types of polyamide (does not fade, for example, in chlorine water, benzene, in citric acid and strong cleaning agents, etc.).

… good abrasion resistance.

… scuff resistance.

With the new, environmentally friendly technology of e-coloring, every nylon laser sintered part is delivered in the desired color

Advantages of e-coloring

  • Shape stability is maintained
  • cost-effective coloring without surface pretreatment
  • Parts retain all geometric, mechanical and thermal properties
  • Color space ranges from brilliant to matte to deep are possible
  • Color penetration depth: 1mm
  • decolorizable only from 200°C

Quality

Polyamides are sensitive to light and thermal or chemical oxidation. The photosensitivity of laser sintered parts can be recognized by their yellowish appearance after a few months. In the case of the colored laser sintered parts, this effect is barely visible due to the color. Thanks to an additive system, we can even improve the light stability and thermal or chemical resistance of the colored laser sintered parts (thermochemical treatment).

Our qualities:

  • e-coloring standard
    Coloring with surface pre-treatment for the optimal look
  • e-coloring standard +
    Coloring with surface pre-treatment for optimal look, including a thermo-chemical treatment to improve the laser-sintered parts (water-tight, pressure resistant, dirt repellent, etc.)
