iglide® l3-PL for 3D printing with SLS

... SLS-Material ...


The material iglide® I3-PL, specially developed for laser sintering, proved to have an abrasion resistance at least 3 times greater than conventional materials for laser sintering during tribologic tests in the igus® test laboratory. This means the degree of design freedom for abrasive loaded parts has been increased yet again.

For beta testing


Good mechanical properties

Detail accuracy with exact surfaces

Processing similar to commercially available SLS materials

Typical applications:Prototype construction, small series, custom engineering, …
