PA 2210 FR is a flame-resistant, halogen-free polyamide (PA 12) material, with excellent long-term stability and chemical resistance. This high-performance plastic is Blue Card-certified, meaning it is tested and approved regularly by an independent test lab. Since it also passes the UL 94 V0 test and tests part of FAR 25.853, it is suitable for even electrical and electronic, and aeronautics and aerospace applications.

Technical Specifications

Standard lead time On demand
Standard accuracy ±0.3 % (with lower limit on ±0.3 mm)
Layer thickness 0.15 mm
Minimum wall thickness 1 mm, but living hinges are possible at 0.3 mm
Minimum detail 0.3 mm
Minimum clearance 0.4 mm between parts that need to be assembled
0.5 mm between shells of an interlocking part
Maximum part dimensions 280 x 280 x 550 mm
Interlocking or enclosed parts? Yes
Surface structure Unfinished parts typically have a grainy surface but all kinds of fine finishes are possible. Laser-sintered parts can be sandblasted, colored/impregnated, painted, covered and coated. Please note that the all finishes like colored/impregnated, painted, covered and coated have an impact on the flammability properties, smoke generation, toxic gas generation and burning behavior.

How Does Laser Sintering Work?

Laser Sintering is a laser-based technology that uses solid powder materials, typically plastics. A computer-controlled laser beam selectively binds together particles in the powder bed, by raising the powder temperature above the glass transition point after which adjacent particles flow together. As the powder is self-supporting, no support structures are necessary.
