Solvay Launches Sinterline - The First Polyamide 6 Powder for Laser Sintering

December 03 2012

Solvay’s Engineering Plastics business unit has launched Sinterline the first range of PA6 powders developed specifically for Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). This additive layer manufacturing technology allows the rapid creation of complex parts. “Laser sintered parts manufactured using Sinterline display a thermal resistance and stiffness similar to those injection-molded in polyamide 6,” explains Ralph Risse, Business Development Manager for Solvay’s Engineering Plastics business unit. “This innovation extends the limits of rapid manufacturing enabling cost-effective production of functional prototypes and small series components.” Solution F/E2R, a leading company specializing in engineering and rapid prototyping techniques for recreational vehicles and aerospace applications, has manufactured parts such as air-intake ducts and brake fluid tanks which highlight the inherent qualities of Sinterline. Other parts are being developed to equip the cockpit of the Solar Impulse, the pioneering solar powered plane for which Solvay is the first main partner.
