Printing Materials

3D printed parts

We offer several types of materials for various products. From rigid to flexible, our team will be able to advise you on the right material for your project.

PA12 (Nylon)
PA12 has the general advantages of nylon : toughness and resistance to fatigue, abrasion and temperature. It has an excellent quality/price ratio, especially for medium to large production batches of parts. It has a wide range of applications and is a good material to choose when in doubt.

PLA
Biodegradable polymer made from corn starch. In addition to being an environmentally friendly bioplastic, it is inexpensive, easy to print, chemically stable and has good mechanical properties. It is available in a wide range of colors and various additives (metals, wood, fiber, stone, etc.) High-performance PLA grades are also possible, offering an alternative to ABS.

PC
PC, or polycarbonate, is a high-performance material. It is exceptionally strong, tough, twice as impact resistant as ABS (colored version) and withstands high temperatures. It is possible to have UL-V0 flame retardant grades. PC can also be mixed with ABS (PC-ABS) and PBT (PC-PBT) to greatly increase inter-layer adhesion.
