The PA6GB40 material is a polyamide widely used in all those applications where the components are subject to wear or friction; it guarantees excellent results both used for prototype purposes and for the production of small batches and pre-productions.
Compared to PA12, it has superior mechanical properties and greater resistance both at room temperature and at high temperatures.
The combined use of PA6GB40 and additive technologies allows to obtain components that are very different from one another, without the typical constraints of the traditional method linked to equipment and mould costs, with the speed of delivery that only additive manufacturing can offer.
