High Performance Polymers

Ultrasint® PA11 Black


General Information

Ultrasint® PA11 black, a bio-based material (castor oil), is an interesting alternative to PA12. Parts produced with this material show a high elongation at break, elasticity and high impact resistance. Typical applications are in environments where high deformations (e.g. hinges) and/or exposure to special surroundings (e.g. chemical, detergents, oil) may occur. Due to its high ductility and toughness, it does not splinter in most crash situations. Ultrasint® PA11 black is processable on most common SLS printers. Parameters for printing will be provided.
