EOS introduced new plastic and metal materials at EuroMold in Frankfurt, Germany.
EOS NickelAlloy IN625 is a versatile material with high tensile strength, excellent processability and uniform corrosion resistance, according to the company.
It is suited for use in aerospace, chemical, motor sport and marine industry applications.
PrimePart FR (PA 2241 FR) is a new, flame-retardant material that is particularly suitable for applications in the aerospace industry. This material, based on PA 12 polyamide, has an 11% elongation at break, which is significantly higher than its predecessor material PA 2210FR. Also, due to its better refresh rate, PrimePart FR offers increased economic and ecological benefits.
PrimePart ST is a flexible elastomeric material, offering a range of mechanical properties depending on the laser-exposure strategy selected. Via the process control, the material can be converted into a hard- or a soft-type component. EOS says the material has an excellent refresh rate, making it a valid ecological alternative compared to conventional flexible materials for laser-sintering. Due to its resilience, PrimePart ST opens up new fields of application, such as flexible fasteners, seals or buffers.
