MATERIALS

At FTI, We’re able to provide all our customers a vast array of materials to meet their plastic printing requirements.

FACTS & DATASHEETS

As the largest polymer additive manufacturing (AM) facility, we utilize multi jet fusion & selective laser sintering (SLS) materials like Nylon 12, Glass-Filled Nylon 12, Flame Retardant Nylon 12 and ‘Tough Black’ PA 1102 to construct plastic 3D printed parts. All our polymer materials provide long-term solidity, toughness and durability.

MATERIALS

PA 1101

The white, light-transmissive, additively manufactured parts are characterized by high impact resistance and elongation at break. They do not splinter even under the highest mechanical loads. Compared to PA 12, they have higher temperature resistance and nearly constant mechanical properties over a wide temperature range. The material PA 1101 is based on renewable resources (castor oil).

PA 1102 - Black

Parts made from the mass-dyed polyamide 11 powder have a uniform black color and are therefore particularly suitable for visible areas that are subject to abrasive wear. In addition, they have high impact resistance and elongation at break and do not splinter even under the highest levels of mechanical stress. Compared to PA 12, they have higher temperature resistance and nearly constant mechanical properties over a wide temperature range. The material PA 1102 black is based on renewable resources (castor oil).

PA 2200

The property profile of durable white parts made from PA 2200 is very balanced: such parts are characterized by strength, rigidity and good chemical resistance. They are also biocompatible and certified for contact with foodstuffs.

PA 2201

Parts made from pigment free polyamide 12 powder are also white but appear slightly more transparent. This material is approved for contact with food (FDA, 21 CFR) and its other properties are similar to PA 2200 – strength, rigidity and good chemical resistance.

PA 2210 FR

This white polyamide 12 powder is equipped with a halogen-free chemical flame retardant. Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has issued a Blue Card (equivalent to the well-known Yellow Card) specifically dedicated to 3D printing materials to PA 2210 FR: at wall thicknesses above 3 mm, it meets the required fire protection class UL 94 / V-0, primarily relevant for the production of electric and electronic components and applications in the aerospace and mobility sectors.

PA 3200 GF

Parts made from this white polyamide 12 powder filled with glass beads have high rigidity and good elongation at break. They are also especially resistant to wear and tear, and thermally resilient. This material is used mostly in vehicle engines and molding material for deep-drawing tools.

PrimePart FR (PA 2241 FR)

This polyamide-12-based material is white and contains a halogen flame retardant. Thanks to its good refreshability, it is very cost-efficient compared to other flame-retardant materials. The additively manufactured parts are elastic with good tensile strength and are used in the interior of aircraft, e.g. ventilation ducts and exhaust valves

Alumide

This metallic gray, aluminum-filled polyamide 12 powder is characterized by high rigidity, a metallic appearance and a range of useful post-processing options. The surfaces of Alumide parts can very easily be finished by grinding, polishing or coating. The chip-breaking effect of the aluminum filling simplifies machining. Another impressive property of Alumide® is its very high temperature resistance, which results in excellent dimensional stability at high temperatures. Parts made from Alumide® can therefore be used in functional applications at high temperatures.

EOS TPU 1301

The parts made from this white material are extremely hydrolysis-resistant, with high resilience and good tribological properties. The degree of flexibility can be influenced by the part design and the choice of process parameters and can even be varied within the same part.

HP 11-30

This high-performance plastic made from PA 11 features high strength combined with increased impact resistance and elongation at break due to being enforced with carbon fibers. Since the fibers are encapsulated (compounded) in the raw material, the dark gray components have comparable mechanical properties in all three spatial directions (isotropy). This material is electrostatically dissipative.

PA 640-GSL

This dark gray PA 12 material is filled with both hollow glass beads and carbon fibers. This makes it exceptionally temperature-resistant and rigid, but also very light.
