We only work with nylon by means of SLS.
To make nylon models, different polyamides (PA) are used. This group of nylon is versatile and finds application in various industries such as e.g. the textile industry, cosmetics industry, eyewear industry, medical technology, automotive engineering and many other industries.
Polyamides are suitable both for the production of prototypes and for serial production.
Depending on the various application areas and customer requirements for the components, careful selection of the material is crucial.
The materials have different properties and values, e.g. in density, tensile strength, ductility and roughness, so that not every material is suitable for every application.
We can print the following materials for you:
PA12 AS (Polyamide 12)
Properties: tissue compatible, dimensionally stable, high chemical resistance
Application: functional components, frames, jewelry
PA12 CS (Polyamide 12, ceramic reinforced)
Properties: high density, high stability
Application: mostly for components that are exposed to high loads
PA11 (Polyamide 11)
Properties: natural product made from castor oil seeds, high chemical resistance, high UV resistance, low water absorption, high density, excellent impact resistance, high elasticity
Application: automotive industry, medical devices, jewelry, frames
Properties: high elasticity, rubbery
Application: seals, damping, pipes, jewelry
TPE (Thermoplastic elastomer)
Properties: high density, high heat resistance, high elasticity, high resistance
Application: mostly for prototypes or end applications under difficult conditions
