Ultrasint® PA11 Black CF

Carbon fiber filled Polyamide 11 powder for Laser Sintering


Ultrasint® PA11 black CF, a bio-based material (castor oil), is a functionally optimized PA11 for high performance applications. Parts made of this material show a high tensile strength, elasticity and high impact resistance. Typical applications are in environments where high strengths and stiffnesses are required (e.g. motorsports) and/or exposure to special surroundings (e.g. chemical, detergents, oil) may occur. It enables lightweight designs through its high strength-to-weight ratio. Ultrasint® PA11 black CF is processable on most common LS printers. Parameters for printing will be provided.

Typical applications are:

  • Individual motorsport parts
  • Lightweight structures
  • Aerodynamic components
  • Metal replacement parts
  • Partly electrically conductive parts

Delivery Form & Warehousing:

Ultrasint® PA11 black CF should be stored at 15 – 25°C in its originally sealed package in a clean and dry environment.

Product Safety:

Mandatory and recommended industrial hygiene procedures and the relevant industrial safety precautions must be followed whenever this product is being handled and processed. Product is sensitive to humid environment conditions. For additional information please consult the corresponding material safety data sheets.

For Your Information:

Ultrasint® PA11 black CF comes in solid black color. Electrical properties (e.g. volume resistivity, surface resistivity), chemical properties (e.g. resistance against particular substances) and tolerance for solvents are available upon request. Generally, these properties correspond to publicly available data on polyamides.
