Alumide is made from nylon and aluminum powder, and it produces strong, high-temperature-resistant parts.
Alumide is a composite material that combines nylon with aluminum particles, resulting in a reinforced material with unique properties. It offers a balance between strength and flexibility, similar to standard nylon, while also providing a distinctive sparkling effect. Alumide exhibits high-temperature resistance up to 120°C and good chemical resistance, making it suitable for various applications.
The material finishes for Alumide include both raw and polished versions, allowing for different surface appearances. Additionally, natural dyed color options are available, providing further customization possibilities.
The technical properties of Alumide are as follows:
|Tensile Strength||42 - 51 MPa|
|Tensile Modulus||3450 - 3950 MPa|
|Tensile Elongation||2.5 - 4.5%|
|Flexural Strength||72 - 74 MPa|
|Flexural Modulus||2850 - 3750 MPa|
|HDT (0.45 MPa)||177.1°C|
|HDT (1.8 MPa)||130°C|
These values represent the material's mechanical properties and behavior under different loading conditions. Tensile strength measures its resistance to breaking under tension, while tensile modulus indicates its stiffness. Tensile elongation represents the material's ability to stretch before breaking. Flexural strength measures its ability to withstand bending forces, and flexural modulus represents its flexural stiffness. HDT (Heat Deflection Temperature) indicates the temperature at which the material starts to deform under specific loads.
Please note that the provided values are approximate ranges and can vary depending on specific printing parameters and conditions. It is advisable to consult the manufacturer's documentation for precise and up-to-date technical specifications for Alumide.
