Product Description
PA 2201, a whitish, a bit more translucent polyamide 12 powder, is in compliance with FDA, 21 CFR, §177.1500 9(b) except for alcoholic foodstuff. Apart from that PA 2201 and PA 2200 have identical material properties. Laser-sintered parts made from PA 2201 possess excellent material properties:

  • high strength and stiffness
  • good chemical resistance
  • excellent long-term constant behaviour
  • high selectivity and detail resolution
  • various finishing possibilities (e.g. metallisation, stove enamelling, vibratory grinding, tub colouring, bonding, powder coating, flocking)

Typical applications of the material are fully functional plastic parts of highest quality. Due to the excellent mechanical properties the material is often used to substitute typical injection moulding plastics. The biocompatibility allows its use e.g. for prostheses, the high abrasion resistance allows e.g. the realisation of movable part connections.
