SLS Materials

Prosilas is one of the leading companies in the use of SLS technology.

 

Prosilas’ strong experience in these technologies allows it to constantly research and test new materials to enable new applications.

Polyammide PA12

It is the most used polymer in laser sintering process and it is also the base of almost all the other materials.

It has an excellent mechanic and thermic performance, for this reason it is suitable to produce functional parts. It is biocompatible and FDA certified (food use).

Alumide / PA12 + Aluminum

Alumide is a polyamide PA12 with aluminium charge. It adds to the polyamide more stiffness.

Thanks to aluminium, heat can dissipate easily and it guarantees a better result for the following CNC mechanic productions.

PA12 + Carbon Fiber

It is a polyamide PA12 charged with carbon fibers.

It is a high-mechanic performance material, it is very
demanded for its high resistance that allows it to be used for stressed components in the aerospace,
motorsport and automotive.

It has electric capacities thanks to the presence of carbon fibers.

PA12 + Glass Spheres

It is a polyamide PA12 charged with micro spheres of glass. Thanks to the glass charge in the polyamide, it is more rigid and keeps the same properties of PA12.

Parts produced with this material have a better result for the following CNC machining and an excellent resistance to abrasions.

TPU

TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) is a material with an excellent elasticity and elongation properties, this guarantees flexibility, durability and resistance to lacerations and abrasions.

Its use is recommended for tubes, gaskets, technical clothing and footwear, and for all those applications that need a material able to be flexible.

PA12 Flame Retardant

It is a polyamide with self-extinguish capacity (halogen free). V-0 for thickness bigger than 2 mm.

It is JAR25 certified for aviation and UL94 certified for the realisation of components applied in electric and electronic systems where self-extinguish characteristics are required.

Polyamide PA6 MF (Mineral Filled)

PA6 MF is a polyamide mineral reinforced that offers mechanic performances and high-temperature
resistance. A stronger material than other polyamides for SLS technology.

The mineral reinforcement is in particle in order to have very homogenous mechanical properties.

This material is recommended for the automotive, mechanics and for every application that requires high-performances.

Polypropylene PP

It is a polymer specifically developed for 3D SLS printing as alternative to polyamide.

Polypropylene, differently from polyamides, offers an excellent plasticity, elongation and great capacity of shock absorption, low moisture absorption and durability.
