Ultrasint® PA6

The Best Material Solution for Durable Parts with Outstanding High Temperature Performance

Ultrasint® PA6 redefines the horizon for Powder Bed Fusion applications: Where other PBF materials show limitations, Ultrasint® PA6 surpasses them. With PA6 being one of the most popular technical polymers for serial production applications, we have added an array of superior material properties to make Ultrasint® PA6 the best material solution for durable parts. Ultrasint® PA6 boasts high strength and rigidity, uncompromising media tightness, as well as excellent thermal distortion and heat-ageing performance. Compared to conventional injection moulded PA6, Ultrasint® PA6 shows a superior performance with a lower water uptake.
Combining high thermal resistance with outstanding mechanical performance, it is the material of choice for advanced technical applications in tough environments.
