Filament Spectrum PA6 Low Warp
Strong and abrasion-resistant
Spectrum PA6 Low Warp is an extremely durable construction material based on polycaprolactam improved with admixtures to reduce the high shrinkage inherent to the processing of such materials. One of the most important characteristics of the Spectrum PA6 Low Warp filament are: resistance to fuel and oils, high impact strength and very good mechanical properties.
The improved cohesiveness of the Spectrum PA6 Low Warp material allows for a significant reduction of “curling” effect (especially at the corners of the printed model). The reduction of this negative effect is related to the low processing shrinkage at the level of 0.3%.
Additives used in the production of Spectrum PA6 Low Warp make it a self-lubricating material, so it is possible to use manufactued parts in applications where friction occurs. Moreover, the printed elements will have a good electrical insulating properties and will show also physiological indifference.
To attain the very attractive properties of Poliamide Low Warp, as regards the technical aspects, you need to follow the basic storage rules for such materials (in a dry and dark place with humidity below 15%). To obtain the best parameters of the printed object, it is recommended to dry the material prior to work.
- low processing shrinkage
- high mechanical strength
- chemical resistance to lubricants and oils
- wide variety of applications
- a very high adhesion between layers, which minimises the risk of delamination
VERIFY YOUR SPOOL – the most precise quality control system on the market
Filament for 3D printers is manufactured by the method of free extrusion, which is one of the most difficult processing techniques by extrusion, due to the particularly large impact of process parameters on product dimensions and material homogenization.
During the production each 1mm of Spectrum Filament is being continuously measured in 2 axis with ±0.8µm accuracy, what allows to obtain a high-quality final product. As a proof of this, Spectrum Filaments has introduced, as one of the few manufacturers in the world, the possibility of presenting online, individually for each manufactured spool:
- the course of diameter on the entire length of the spool,
- mean diameter,
- standard deviation.
Precise survey guarantees that Spectrum Filaments products meet rigorous market requirements.
- slide bearings, scrapers, guide rollers operating at elevated temperatures
- sealing rings and plates with increased chemical and corrosion resistance
- end-use parts
- functional prototyping
Filament is reeled on the neat, transparent spool. Each spool contains information on the type of material, diameter and recommended printing temperature. Filament is vacuum-packed with a moisture absorber. Instruction manual inside. Whole product packed in the original, folied Spectrum Filaments packaging.
