Sculpteo has announced the availability of four new PA11-based materials from BASF on its online part services platform. Known for its high-ductility, impact strength, and suitability for applications with high mechanical loads or stress,
PA11, in this case, is also sourced from 100% renewable biomass such as castor oil. PA 11 material with skin contact applications.
The four materials introduced are the Ultrasint PA11 , the Ultrasint PA11 ESD (electrostatic discharge), Ultrasint CF (carbon fiber) , and PA11 for MJF (Multi Jet Fusion). The PA11 ESD is especially relevant for electrical and tooling applications with housings, jigs and other components where electrostatic discharging properties are critical. PA11 CF.
