Alumide - PA + Aluminium

Alumide - PA12 + Aluminium

This material is characterized by its high rigidity, its good post-treatment possibilities and its metallic appearance.

The alumide is a polyamide 12 powder loaded with aluminum particles. Metallic gray in color, it is often used to simulate the appearance of metal. It withstands high temperatures 130 ° C.

Parts printed from Alumide have excellent material properties:

- Excellent dimensional accuracy.

- Well balanced ratio of density and rigidity.

- Increased thermal conduction and good machinability.

- The surfaces of Alumide parts can be refined very easily by grinding, polishing or coating.


Examples of use of Alumide:

  • Manufacture of metallic appearance parts for automotive applications (engine parts).
  • Visual and illustrative models (metallic aspect) for education or presentation of projects.
  • Template manufacturing, wind tunnel tests, tool insertion tool.
