GF Nylon-12

Process: Laser Sintered (LS)
Laser Sintered (LS) parts are ideal when you need tough parts for harsh functional testing. SICAM produces our laser sintered parts from pure nylon powder for high strength, pressure proof, chemical and heat resistant applications. Adding a percentage of glass fill can increase rigidity and resilience to parts in harsh heat environments.
