Impact Resistant and Versatile
Tough PLA is a versatile material that is easy to print and produces consistently good results. It has a good surface finish, is biodegradable, stiff and has a good impact resistance. It is a good alternative to ABS.
- Manufacturing aids
- End use parts
Wear and Temperature Resistance
PA (Polyamide) is an engineering plastic, characterised by its great resistance to impact forces and ability to work continuously at a temperature of up to 120 ºC for an extended period of time. A low coefficient of friction allows for short term use with moving parts.
- Tool handles
- Cam, rollers and snap fit joints
Stiff and Impact Resistant
ABS is a good material to use in an industrial environment. It has an attractive matte finish, good stiffness, dimensional stability. It has good layer adhesion which allows for easy printing.
- Parts under high mechanical stress
- Strong prototypes
Easy to Print with Good Mechanical Properties
PET-G has a good balance of strength and elongation at break. It is resistant to water and chemicals, therefore it’s often used for water tight containers. The material is easy to print and has better mechanical properties than PLA.
- Parts in contact with salts, acids etc.
- Waterproof applications
