Nylon PA 11 ESD (polyamide): lightweight and robust high performance SLS thermoplastic

Nylon PA 11 CF (carbon-filled) is designed for high performance applications. The parts produced by this carbon fiber reinforced material have high tensile strength, elasticity and high impact resistance. It is therefore ideal for applications in environments where high strengths and rigidity are required and/or parts are exposed to particular environments (eg chemicals, detergents, oil). It allows robust lightweight designs thanks to its high strength-to-weight ratio.

Nylon PA 11 CF (Carbon Filled)


Standard lead time About 7 working days, depending on part size, quantity, number of components and finishing degrees.
Standard accuracy ±0.012 in (± 0.3 mm) - may vary depending on geometry.
Layer thickness 0.004 in - 0.1 mm
Minimum wall thickness 0.039 in - 1 mm
Maximum build dimensions Dimensions are unlimited as components may be composed of several sub-parts. The maximum build envelope is 15 x 15 x 16 in (381 x 381 x 406 mm).
Surface structure Unfinished parts typically have a grainy surface but all kinds of fine finishes are possible. Laser-sintered parts can be smoothed, painted and coated.
