PA (Polyamide) is an engineering plastic, characterised by its great resistance to impact and able to work continuously at a temperature of up to 120 ºC for an extended period of time.

Its semi-flexible behaviour derives from a semicrystalline structure, which impart strength and durability, best suited for the most demanding technical applications. A low coefficient of friction allows for a short-term use in contact with moving parts.PA (Polyamide) is an engineering plastic, characterised by its great resistance to impact and able to work continuously at a temperature of up to 120 ºC for an extended period of time.

Applications

  • Strong and flexible parts
  • Structural components exposed to a harsh environment
  • Parts demanding high fatigue endurance
  • Bearings, nuts, rivets, washers and gears
  • Cams, rollers, snap-fit joints and sliding components
  • Plugs, connectors, jigs and fixtures
  • Electronic covers and tool handles
  • High-performance material with flexible applications

    PA is a technical and competent material with an excellent impact strength and elongation at break. However, all this impact strength is compensated by a low level of stiffness that allows flexible applications.

    Properties

  • Exceptional impact resistance and good strength
  • Low friction coefficient
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Thermal resistance (upt to 120ºC)
  • Good resistance to oil and alkali
  • Strongly hygroscopic
  • Thermomechanical properties dependent on environmental humidity

    Bed adhesion:

    To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo.

    Recommendations:

  • Store it in an airtight container with desiccant.
  • Dry filament before printing.Place it in an oven or in a dehydrator at 50ºC for 6 to 8 hours
  • Enclosure is required for BCN3D Sigma and Sigmax printers.
