3D Printing Materials

Our customers always have wide option of choosing from a large variety of choosing materials for 3D printing, depending on your specific project requirements and budget, our team ensures to deliver right advice and handhold new customers who are new in the world of 3D printing.

Plastic 3D Printing

It one of the most cost-effective, eco-friendly (Here the plastics used are biodegradable) and also perfectly accurate method for 3D printings.There are many different types of plastics such as: Polycarbonate (PC), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS),Polylactic Acid (PLA),Polyvinyl Alcohol Plastic (PVA).

Polycarbonate (PC)

Polycarbonates (PC) are a group of thermoplastic polymers containing carbonate groups in their chemical structures. Polycarbonates used in engineering are strong, tough materials, and some grades are optically transparent. They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed.It is a heat-resistant material with high-strength as well as hygroscopic properties. Parts made out of PC must be stored in environments where there is abbsence moisture.

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)

ABS is a terpolymer made by polymerizing styrene and acrylonitrile in the presence of polybutadiene. The proportions can vary from 15 to 35% acrylonitrile, 5 to 30% butadiene and 40 to 60% styrene. It is a strong plastic that is broadly used in the FDM printing technology for getting functional prototypes. Individually printed ABS parts can be easily stick to create larger models.

Polylactic Acid (PLA)

PLA has become a popular material due to it being economically produced from renewable resources. In 2010, PLA had the second highest consumption volume of any bioplastic of the world, although it is still not a commodity polymer. Its widespread application has been hindered by numerous physical and processing shortcomings. PLA is the most widely used plastic filament material in 3D printing. It is a biodegradable thermoplastic, PLA is one of the basic raw material used in 3D printing. It is most useful in the production of consumer goods.

Polyvinyl Alcohol Plastic (PVA)

PVA is used in a variety of medical applications because of its biocompatibility, low tendency for protein adhesion, and low toxicity. Specific uses include cartilage replacements, contact lenses, and eye drops.Nowadays PVA-based polymers are being used widely in additive manufacturing. PVA is water-soluble this makes it an ideal choice as a secondary layer in 3D printing to support basic extruders such as PLA or ABS.

Nylon or Polyamide

It is famously known for durability. The material is also strong, resistant and flexible to abrasions, this makes it ideal for functional testing and also for high temperature requirements.

Sandstone

Sandstone is most adaptable material for 3D printing, it can be printed in many colours at the same time, making it more suitable for printing decorative products, art objects and products for medical solutions. Sandstone is a easily breakable material and thus we have to handle it with a lot of care.

Liquid Resin

It has a best combination advantage of durability and accuracy. It showcases high resistance to moisture as well as temperature changes, making it ideal for applications in industries like automotive & aerospace..

Metal 3D Printing

It is used to decrease manufacturing wastes as well as energy consumption. They come in a variety of options, including Maraging Steel (MS1), Titanium, Stainless Steel316L, Inconel 326, Cobalt Chrome, Inconel 718, Platinum, Brass, Bronze, Silver, Aluminum (AlSi10Mg) and Copper.
