PA 1101 is a whitish-translucent polyamide 11 material, which is optimised for the use as a laser-sintering material. Laser-sintered parts made from PA 1101 are characterised by high impact resistance and elongation at break. The material is based on renewable resources and can therefore be classified as environmentally friendly material.
- high impact resistance & elongation at break with an otherwise balanced property profile
- based on renewable resources
- better temperature resistance than PA 12; nearly continuous mechanical properties at a wide temperature range
- no splintering and cracking, even under highest mechanical stress
The material is particularly suitable for applications with functional elements which require high material ductility (e.g. integral hinges) and ones where high impact resistance is important.
Another typical application for this material is for components which do not allow splintering (e.g. parts to be used in the passenger compartment in vehicles).
