Rapid Tool Laser Sintering, Boulder, Colorado

DuraForm Polyamide - Nylon 12 & Glass-Filled Nylon 12

The ideal material for creating a rugged, functional prototype while getting you to market faster.

Strength, Durability and Toughness
• DuraForm laser sintered prototypes and production parts will withstand rugged, functional testing.
• Performs like conventional thermoplastic nylon, resisting heat while still retaining flexibility and physical properties.

Superior Properties
• Superior surface finish, excellent feature definition and detail.
• Superior thermal and mechanical properties. Machinable, weldable and bondable.
• Ideal for creating a variety of functional parts, including small, intricate electrical connectors and assembly components to large enclosures for electronic and computer equipment.
• DuraForm PA
is USP Level VI certified, and can be autoclaved.
• DuraForm GF when greater dimensional accuracy, stiffness or high load heat deflection is required.

• DuraForm allows you to make design changes to the part within a matter of days, rather than weeks.
• SLS prototypes made with DuraForm are faster, cheaper and more accurate than conventionally machined prototypes.

DuraForm Prototypes vs SLA Prototypes
• DuraForm prototypes have been proven to perform under aggressive, functional testing, while SLA prototypes are simply unable to endure these harsh test conditions.
• Because no support structures are required during the SLS process, cosmetics are improved and time as space are saved enabling more to be sintered in a single build.
