BigRep Polyamid PA6/66 Filament
BigRep’s PA6/66 is a highly durable 3D printing filament for industrial applications. It is a light-weight thermoplastic material with high rigidity and has high resistance to heat and chemicals. Its high compatibility with machining and mechanical strength make it an excellent candidate for most industrial applications, especially in the automotive and aerospace sectors.
Functionally similar to Nylon PA6, a common material for injection molding, PA6/66 is ideal for printing end-use parts or prototyping with nearly identical material properties to final, mass-produced parts. The material’s durability and production scalability make it the choice for not just industrial transportation applications, but also developing product electrical housing, cooling, and heating systems, as well as molds and vacuum forming.
Prototyping with PA6/66 in full-scale with the same material properties as a final product can present substantial shortcuts in the product development cycle, circumventing frequent late-stage iteration problems and dodging related exorbitant expenses.
High Strength and Durability
BigRep PA6/66 filament is known for its excellent strength and durability. It is a blend of polyamide 6 (PA6) and polyamide 66 (PA66), combining the benefits of both materials. This filament offers enhanced mechanical properties, making it suitable for producing robust and long-lasting parts.
PA6/66 filament exhibits good resistance to various chemicals, including oils, greases, and certain solvents. This property makes it suitable for applications that require resistance to chemical exposure or contact with harsh substances.
Good Impact Resistance
BigRep PA6/66 filament provides good impact resistance, allowing it to withstand sudden loads and impacts without cracking or breaking. This makes it suitable for producing parts that need to withstand mechanical stress or dynamic environments.
Excellent Dimensional Stability
PA6/66 filament offers excellent dimensional stability during the printing process and after printing. It has low warping and shrinkage properties, ensuring accurate and dimensionally stable prints. This reduces the likelihood of warping, curling, or distortion during the printing process, resulting in reliable and high-quality prints.
