PA= Polyamide (Nylon)
Ideal for low-stress aesthetic prototypes. It is an inexpensive material that is ideal for aesthetic finishes (stucco work and painting) when realising maquettes.
PA+GF= Polyamide with a 30% fibreglass reinforcement (Nylon-Glass)
deal for medium stress semi-functional prototypes. This material is ideal for realising complex and slim-width objects. Thanks to the optional impregnation treatment using epoxy resins, it is highly suitable for use in the hydraulic sector.
PA+AL= Polyamide with a 30% aluminium fibre reinforcement (Nylon-Aluminium)
Ideal for stressed functional and semi-functional prototypes. It is slightly more expensive than the former but is extremely high performing. It is renowned for its high tensile strength and exceptional machinability. It is ideal for realising complex and slim-width objects. Thanks to the optional impregnation treatment using epoxy resins, it is highly suitable for use in the hydraulic sector.
PA+C= Polyamide with 30% carbon fibre reinforcement (Nylon-carbon)
Ideal for high-stress semi-functional prototypes. It is one of the highest performing materials, specifically formulated to meet the requirements of the most demanding sectors, such as the racing and extreme sports worlds. It is renowned for its high tensile strength and excellent elastic modulus. It is used for the realisation of complex and slim-width objects. The objects realised using this material can be finished using procedures that drastically improves quality of the surfaces that can then be painted, achieving an extremely prestigious result that can be used in wind tunnels.
Ideal for semi-functional and functional prototypes which must provide high elasticity and deformation capacity. This material is ideal for realising flexible parts such as couplings, sleeves, diaphragms for airboxes etc.
The part obtained from a granulated rubber matrix requires special treatment to produce impermeable or fluid tight objects.
These materials are not standardised and do not correspond to similar industrial production materials.
They are formulated solely to meet specific requirements with exceptionally high levels of detail, where the aesthetic appearance is given priority over specific mechanical and technical properties.
These materials can be generally grouped as follows:
- High detail matt resins ideal for the realisation of models, masters for silicone moulds and technical prototypes of small industrial objects (e.g. remote controls, microsystems, toys, casings and shells for small devices). Resins are available also in off-white and black.
- High detail semi-transparent resins ideal for realising concept models. This type of object can be machined using finishing processes so as to achieve high levels of transparency for prototypes that require perfect internal vision (headlamps, particular lenticular screens or casings for systems where the interior must be visible).
High definition elastomer materials with a hardness of 40-60-80 Sh(A) ideal for realising prototypes of deformable objects, such as shoe soles, gaskets, sleeves, rubber-like diaphragms, nozzles, blowers etc.
Sintering and virgin BLENDS
Special formula polymeric Blends are used to realise objects which are under significant stress loads and for extreme applications as they guarantee top quality performance and greater uniformity of response. Although these materials are chemically identical to those above, they have a greater binding and amalgamation capability, providing mechanical characterisation of over +15%.
