About Pa12 af Nylon Powder Introduction

PA12 AF (Nylon Powder with Added Fillers) is an advanced variation of polyamide 12 (PA12) powder used in 3D printing. It is specifically engineered with the addition of fillers to enhance its properties and performance for specialized applications. The added fillers, such as carbon fiber, glass fiber, or other reinforcing materials, impart improved mechanical strength, stiffness, and dimensional stability to the PA12 matrix. This makes PA12 AF an excellent choice for applications that require high strength, rigidity, and resistance to wear. Additionally, the combination of PA12's inherent characteristics, such as chemical resistance and low moisture absorption, with the added fillers creates a versatile material suitable for demanding environments.

Advantages of Fiber Reinfocement Nylon Powder

The disadvantage of nylon powder is that it has high water absorption, which affects dimensional stability and electrical properties. Fiber reinforcement can reduce the water absorption rate of resin, so that it can work at high temperature and high humidity.

Advantages of Fiber Reinfocement Nylon Powder

What is the Nature of Nylon Powder?

Nylon powder is composed of nylon resin powder and other substances in a certain formula ratio. It can make the coated surface more wear-resistant, rust-proof and chemical-resistant.

The Properties of Nylon Powder

Nylon Powder | Wide variety and wide range of applications

Polyamide (PA), commonly known as nylon powder, is an engineering plastic with excellent performance, with excellent mechanical properties, outstanding corrosion resistance, oil resistance, heat resistance, high modulus and other advantages. In the 3d printing industry, PA12 and PA11 are used more, followed by PA6.
After the nylon material is reinforced and flame-retardant modified, its heat resistance, modulus dimensional stability and flame resistance can be significantly improved. At present, among the Precimid series printing powders of TPM3D, there are glass fiber reinforced nylon materials and carbon fiber reinforced materials. Nylon materials, including aluminum alloy reinforced nylon materials, as well as flame-retardant nylon materials, more than 30 kinds of SLS polymer powder printing materials are widely used in automobiles, electrical and electronic, power tools, consumer electronics, medical care, education, cultural and creative industries and aerospace. and other fields.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

PA12 AF nylon powder is a specialized variation of polyamide 12 (PA12) powder that incorporates added fillers, such as carbon fiber or glass fiber, to enhance its mechanical properties.

PA12 AF nylon powder offers improved strength, stiffness, and dimensional stability compared to regular PA12. It provides enhanced durability, wear resistance, and rigidity, making it suitable for demanding applications.

Industries such as automotive, aerospace, engineering, and manufacturing can benefit from PA12 AF nylon powder. It is ideal for producing robust and lightweight components that require superior strength and performance.

PA12 AF nylon powder is processed using selective laser sintering (SLS) technology. It is heated by a laser to fuse the powdered material layer by layer, forming complex three-dimensional objects with high precision.

Carbon fiber and glass fiber are commonly used fillers in PA12 AF nylon powder. These fillers improve the material's mechanical properties, enhancing strength and stiffness.

Depending on the desired outcome, post-processing steps such as surface finishing, dyeing, or coating can be performed to enhance the appearance and functionality of parts printed with PA12 AF nylon powder.

PA12 AF nylon powder is primarily used as a standalone material. However, it can potentially be combined with other compatible materials or additives to further enhance its properties or achieve specific requirements.

Future developments may focus on expanding the range of fillers available for PA12 AF nylon powder, optimizing the material's properties, and exploring new applications in various industries.
