Properties:

  • High stiffness
  • Wear resistance
  • Improved temperature performance
  • Good thermal loadability
  • Excellent surface quality
  • High dimensional accuracy and detail resolution
  • Good processability

Applications:

  • Stiff housings
  • Parts with requirements on wear and abrasion
  • Parts used under elevated thermal conditions
  • Usage e.g. for final parts within the engine area of cars
  • Deep-drawing dies
  • Any other application which requires particular stiffness, high heat distortion temperature and low abrasive wear
Alumide® - Polyamide Aluminium-filled

Product Information

Alumide is a metallic grey, aluminium-filled polyamide 12 powder, which is characterised by its high stiffness, metallic appearance and good postprocessing possibilities. The surfaces of Alumide parts can be refined very easily by grinding, polishing or coating. The machining of Alumide laser-sintered parts is simplified through the cut breaking effect of the aluminium filling.

Properties:

  • Easy post-processing, good machinability
  • High temperature performance
  • Thermal conductivity (limited)
  • High stiffness
  • Well-balanced ratio of density and stiffness
  • Excellent dimensional accuracy

Applications:

  • Applications with metal-like look
  • Parts which need machining
  • Parts with thermal loads
  • Manufacture of stiff parts of metallic appearance for applications in automotive manufacture (e.g. wind tunnel tests or parts that are not safety-relevant)
  • Tool inserts for injecting and moulding small production runs
  • Illustrative models (metallic appearance)
  • Setting jig and device manufacture
