PA12 - SLS Polymer

PA12 sinter polymer is a versatile material with very good mechanical and thermal properties. Some applications are:
Products with film hinges
Snap-fit parts, particularly strong snap hooks
Covers, also large parts that can be glued
Series production (Direct Manufacturing)
Test parts for R&D departments, design and engineering agencies
