Alumide is a blend of aluminum powder and polyamide powder, which allows metallic-looking, non-porous components to be machined easily and is resistant to high temperatures (130°C). Typical applications include parts for wind tunnel testing in the automotive industry, small production runs, jig manufacturing, education and illustrative models with a metallic appearance.
