• Cost advantage
  • High strength (>100 MPa)
  • Outstanding dimensional accuracy
  • Geometric complexity: ability to create point features
  • Ability to create flat parts and feathered edges
  • High strength-to-weight ratio
  • Stronger than equivalent injection moulded parts
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Excellent temperature performance (melting point 180⁰C)
  • No significant warpage, shrinkage or sink marks
  • Sustainable process: complete recyclability and no powder wastage
