Plastic and Simil-rubber

3D Prototypes from SLS, CNC Milling and Object

Plastic 3D printed prototypes can be obtained by:

  • SLS printing materials, granular powders (functional, technical and medium aesthetic uses);
  • Plastic milling materials (functional and aesthetic uses);
  • PolyJet/Object printing materials (aesthetic and simulation appeal uses);
3D plastic printing

Rigid plastics
All materials for rigid SLS are industrial-grade technical polymers designed for high functional compliance. Endowed with fair aesthetic qualities, they may require additional machining to increase aesthetic qualities or change their coloring.

  • Neutral polyamide (unfilled commonly known as PA, called PA2200 in technical jargon in reference to its tensile modulus) is the perfect material for making prototypes for assembly or verification of elements with joints, given its good bending, or for making elements of low thickness.


  • Glass-filled polyamide (commonly known as PA-GF, called PA3200 in technical jargon in reference to its tensile modulus) is a very strong material with important stiffness conferred by the filler. It is ideal for making parts such as shells and fairings, elements of the car and motorcycle industry especially if for coating purposes.


  • Aluminum-filled polyamide (commonly known as PA-AL or by the trade name Alumide) is one of the strongest and most rigid plastic materials. It is ideal for making prototypes of parts that are highly mechanically stressed or that need to undergo machining such as bulk threading, bushing application, or others.


  • Carbon-filled polyamide (commonly known as PA-C or by the trade name Carbomide) is the strongest and most rigid plastic material ever. It is ideal for making prototypes of parts that are extremely mechanically stressed or that need to undergo wind tunnel or related finishing work. It is characterized by a really high Tensile Strength to Density ratio, making it a must-have choice in all those applications where structures need to be extreme and masses need to be contained such as racing or avionics.


Sintered rubber evidences a smaller elastic range than is possible in industrial production and has an unmodifiable ShA hardness.

  • Sintered rubber (PEBA or Block Polyetheramide or “PrimepartST”), yellowish-white in color.


Blocks of plastic materials such as ABS, PA, POM and others specially formulated for machining by chip removal can be machined.

All PolyJet/Object plastic 3D printing materials are cartridge polymers designed for high aesthetic compliance and prototype appeal. They may have technical characteristics not in line with industrial products either in terms of stiffness or elasticity or ShA hardness.

  • Simil opaque rubber from the “Tango” 60 ShA range in black.
