Material

Bluesint PA 12

Developed by Materialise, Bluesint PA 12 offers similar mechanical and visual properties to traditional laser-sintered PA 12, but is made from 100% re-used polyamide powder. As well as avoiding waste, using this material reduces powder-related carbon emissions by over 30%, offering a more sustainable alternative for rapid prototyping.
