Print Strength You Can Count On
Essentium PA is known for its strength. As an engineering grade material, our Polyamide is easy to print with while boasting a variety of excellent mechanical properties. Perfect for functional parts, Essentium PA provides strength you can rely on.
Impact Resistant & Wear Resistant
Prints with PA are prints you can rely on for a long time. With high impact resistance, Essentium PA can withstand a significant amount of force. It’s chemical and abrasion resistance means there’s little that can break down this material.
Balanced Toughness and Rigidness
PA provides tough prints that can flex for various applications yet retain its stiffness. If you have parts that need more rigidness than a traditional flexible filament but less stiffness than PLA, Essentium PA is the right choice.
Essentium PA is chemically superior and has been specially formulated for additive manufacturing by BASF. Enjoy this chemical and abrasion resistant material while gaining significant strength and durability. It is important to note that the mechanical properties of PA may change with water uptake as it is moisture sensitive. The best prints with Essentium PA typically occur utilizing a glass bed and bed adhesion solution.
