Product Description
Polyamide 6-based powder for Laster Sintering with flame retardant

All Ultrasint PA6 grades have in common that they show high modulus, high strength and excellent thermal distortion stability. These properties ensure precise feature control, very good mechanical properties and simple surface reprocessing of 3D printed parts.
Parts made of Ultrasint PA6 FR black reach a V2 rating (UL 94V) and boast of high modulus, high strength and excellent thermal distortion stability, making the material suitable for prototyping and small series production in automotive, transportation, E&E and aerospace applications. Ultrasint PA6 FR black can fulfill the requirements of functional applications regarding high accuracy and mechanical strength as well as a high heat distortion temperature - properties, where existing 3D printing materials often show limitations.

Typical applications are:
  • Switchboard parts and other electronic components
  • Media flow & storage parts (i.e. air ducts for buses/aerospace)
  • Jigs & Fixtures for cables and pipes
