Material Info

This material is a real all-rounder in additive manufacturing. It is characterized by excellent mechanical properties and also has very good dimensional stability. The difference to normal PA12 is due to the manufacturing process, which ensures a higher crystallinity and a higher melting point for SLS - PA12.

Look and feel:
Untreated parts are white and have a slightly rough surface. Various post-treatment processes are available with which smooth, homogeneous surfaces can be achieved.


Dyed SLS parts


SLS parts can be dyed after printing. Textile dye is used and our color palette ranges from 31 standard colors to 170 RAL shades.

Vibratory grinding (tumbling)

Vibratory grinding produces homogeneous and smooth surfaces. For this purpose, an even abrasion is generated on the parts in a vibration trough using grinding stones.

Chemical smoothing

During chemical smoothing, the parts are treated with a solvent vapor. In this way, surfaces are achieved that come close to the quality of injection molded components.
