SLS / PA3200 GF

ENHANCED STIFFNESS AND TEMPERATURE STABILITY. VERY GOOD WEAR RESISTANCE.

PA3200 GF is a polyamide 12 (PA12) powder with a 30% glass bead content, which is characterised by the excellent stiffness and mechanical wear resistance of laser-sintered parts.

A typical application for PA3200 GF is plastic parts that require high strength, low abrasive wear and higher heat distortion temperature. Common applications include: stiff and rigid plastic housings, support structures of machines and apparatuses, bearing housings, and thermally loaded parts.

The material is available in grey colour.
