PA12S MATERIAL DATA SHEET

NYLON POWDER FOR SLS SYSTEM

PA12S is a fine thermoplastic Polyamide Nylon powder formulated to produce functional prototypes and typical applications in automotive manufacture (e.g. wind tunnel tests or parts that are not safety-relevant). This material is mainly used on rapid prototyping systems by laser sintering or radiation. It provides production of prototype & functional parts with long life cycle and excellent functionality. The recommended layer thickness amounts to 0.15 mm.
