RP Support adds advanced laser sintering powders to its portfolio

15 October 2010

RP Support has introduced a range of high performance laser sintering powders to its materials portfolio, which will be supplied through the newly formed partnership with Advanced Laser Materials. The high life cycle of these products substantially reduces waste whilst their high stability ensures consistent quality. Some of the key materials in the range include:

 PA 650 – an easy to process Nylon12, with optimised dry powder flow, which can be run as a drop-in replacement for other PA12 sintering powders, providing improved part detail and surface finish.
 PA 615-GS - a highly glass sphere filled material for higher dimensional stability, stiffness and temperature resistance compared to unfilled PA. Against comparable materials this powder is more recyclable and produces a better part surface finish.
 PA 601-CF - a carbon fibre filled Nylon12 powder with very low density, good dimensional stability, very high tensile modulus and heat deflection temperature.
 FR 106 - a fire retarded Nylon11 material which meets the flammability requirements of BMS8-401, type 1, class A, grade 60 for parts requiring superior mechanical properties coupled with high levels of fire retardancy.
 PA 640-GSL – a newly developed, light weight nylon12. This material has superior strength to weight properties that surpass any commercially available nylon12 filled material. It is ideal for light weight applications requiring a combination of strength and aesthetics.

Other materials in the range include TPE 210-S a flexible, thermoplastic elastomer for rubber-like parts, PA D80-ST, a colour stabilised Nylon11 that is also stabilised to prevent thermal degradation and PA 250, a Nylon12 powder, engineered for excellent mechanical properties, part definition and surface finish. It is also stabilised against thermal degradation resulting in little or no scrap material, with typical virgin refresh rates from 15 – 25%.

All materials are delivered in 10kg or 15kg pack sizes and are available from stock.
