Temperature-Resistant PA Powder for 3D Printing
Thermal Properties Modified
Evonik Resource Efficiency GmbH, Essen, Germany, has developed a polymer powder for applications in higher temperature range as part of its polyamide 6 series.
The product further expands the company’s portfolio of high-performance materials for powder-based 3D printing technologies.
The new polyamide powder features high mechanical strength as well as good chemical and temperature resistance. Its heat deflection temperature (HDT B) is around 195°C. Moreover, the powder material stands out for its low water absorption – below 3% –, which, according to the company, has a positive effect on processability in 3D printing and the dimensional stability of printed 3D components.
The new polymer powder with its nearly round grain shape stands out for good flowability and application properties, making it suitable for all powder-based 3D printing technologies. A proprietary procedure of Evonik is employed to produce the high-temperature material at the company’s Marl site in Germany.
