Additive Manufacturing Materials

Prototek is a leading supplier of thermoplastics designed specifically for additive manufacturing. We offer an extensive selection of over 40 different types of thermoplastics, each with unique properties and advantages. Our range includes popular materials such as ABS, nylon, and polycarbonate, as well as more specialized materials like Ultracur3D 3280 and Ultem.

 

Our thermoplastics are carefully selected and tested to ensure the highest quality and consistency. We work with some of the industry’s most reputable manufacturers to source the best materials. Our team of experts is always available to assist you in selecting the most suitable material for your project needs.

 

Choosing the right material for your project requires careful consideration of several factors. The material’s mechanical properties, including strength, flexibility, and toughness, are essential in determining its ability to withstand physical stress. Chemical resistance is another crucial factor to consider, as the material should be able to endure exposure to chemicals like acids, bases, and solvents. Cost is also an essential factor, as some materials can be more expensive than others and can impact the overall cost of the finished product. It is vital to evaluate these factors thoroughly before selecting the appropriate material for 3D printing.

Additive Manufacturing Finishes

When choosing additive manufacturing finishes for your project, several factors must be considered. The first is the intended use of the finished product, which will dictate the necessary durability and surface finish level. Additionally, the chosen material will impact the available finishes, so selecting a material compatible with the desired finish is vital. Some standard finishes for additive manufacturing include beadblasting, polishing, painting, and clear coating. It is also essential to consider each finish’s cost and lead time, as more complex finishes will generally require more time and resources. Overall, the chosen finish should be appropriate for the intended use and add value to the product rather than detract from it.
