Material

PA 12 (SLS)

High mechanical and thermal resistance make laser sintered PA 12 (SLS) an ideal choice for a wide range of applications, from functional prototypes and end-use parts, to consumer goods. This material has excellent long-term stability, is resistant against most chemicals, can be made watertight by impregnation, and is certified as biocompatible and food-safe under certain conditions.
