PA BCN3D Filaments
Wear resistant / Impact resistant / Semi-flexible
PA (Polyamide) is an engineering plastic, characterised by its great resistance to impact and able to work continuously at a temperature of up to 120 ºC for an extended period of time.
Its semi-flexible behaviour derives from a semicrystalline structure, which impart strength and durability, best suited for the most demanding technical applications. A low coefficient of friction allows for a short-term use in contact with moving parts.

Materials for 3D printing & In-depth on fibre-filled
Which is the strongest 3D printing material? And… is stronger always better? In this webinar, Materials Engineer Dario Destro will walk you through the different 3D printing filament types currently available in the market and their properties, with a special emphasis on fiber-filled materials.
NGNY Devices: Thousands in savings on end-use parts thanks to 3D printing
Incorporating in-house 3D printing at the engineering and fabrication workflows of end-use parts for their automated machines is saving NGNY over 40,000€ a year, while significantly accelerating their processes and facilitating customization from beginning to end.
High-performance material with flexible applicationsPA is a technical and competent material with an excellent impact strength and elongation at break. However, all this impact strength is compensated by a low level of stiffness that allows flexible applications.
How to print

Get a proper printing profile for PA using the ones integrated into the BCN3D Stratos. Download the latest version of BCN3D Stratos.
To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo PA.
- Store it in an airtight container with desiccant.
- Dry filament before printing.Place it in an oven or in a dehydrator at 50ºC for 6 to 8 hours
- Enclosure is required for BCN3D Sigma and Sigmax printers.
Product design end-use partsPA provided the high fatigue endurance, durability, and exceptional impact resistance needed for this protector for the fork guard front.
High resistance to wearPA is ideal for assembling moving parts, thanks to its low coefficient of friction and durability.
High fatigue resistancePA is ideal for strong and flexible parts subject to cyclic loads that require high fatigue resistance.
