What is pa2200?
The PA2200 is a form of polyamide, commonly identified as Nylon. Widely used in a variety of industrial contexts and applications, the PA2200 stands out as a versatile material due to its exceptional mechanical and chemical properties.
Its characteristics are enhanced by the ability to 3D print using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology, allowing for the production of applications, prototypes, or entire production batches.
It adheres to rigorous biocompatibility standards, complying with EN ISO 10993-1, USP / Level VI / 121 °C, and approved for contact with food according to the EU Directive 2002/72/EC on plastics.
The PA2200 has several key characteristics that make it a remarkable material in additive manufacturing:
- High Resolution and Selectivity: Notable detail resolution and high selectivity make it ideal for precision in creating parts.
- Strength and Rigidity: Sintered parts in PA2200 exhibit an excellent combination of strength and rigidity, ensuring mechanical robustness and adaptability.
- Chemical Resistance: The material provides good resistance to chemical agents, broadening its potential applications in various industrial contexts.
- Biocompatibility: Approved for use in medical devices and other applications requiring biocompatible materials, such as orthopedic components.
The PA2200 is employed across a wide range of industrial sectors, thanks to its excellent properties:
- Industrial Prototyping: Ideal for rapid prototyping and aesthetic and functional testing, accelerating the development process of new products, as seen in industrial and automotive sectors.
- Industrial Components and Medical Devices: Used in the production of components for industrial machinery, customized flow meters, orthopedic devices, and other medical devices, including spare parts for the aftermarket.
- Automotive Industry: Replacement parts, grippers, tanks, covers, and other components requiring high mechanical properties benefit from the use of PA2200 in the automotive industry.
- Mass Production: The versatility of PA2200 in SLS printing makes it an excellent choice for mass production of functional parts, eliminating the need for expensive molds.
The sintered parts in this material allow for the application of various finishes, including priming, metallization, spray painting, milling, dip coloring, and waterproofing through a specific vapor smoothing treatment.
PA2200 with Primer
This treatment makes the surface of the part smooth and uniform, preparing the
part for a possible painting phase.
We can paint the part according to the specifications provided by the customer
(type of finish and RAL)
PA2200 Primer + Paint
This treatment consists of two stages: first the primer is applied, which makes the surface of the part smooth, and then it is varnished according to the customer’s specifications.
