3D Polyamide Market: Introduction

  • Polyamide is an exceptionally strong, versatile, and flexible material. Polyamide can resist a small degree of impact and a certain amount of pressure during bending. Depending on its design or structure, polyamide can be rigid or flexible. In addition, it is available in different colors and finishing options for use in polishing, color dyeing, waterproofing, and flocking.
  • Polyamide is a macromolecule that occurs artificially as well as naturally. Naturally occurring polyamides are forms of proteins including silk and wool. In addition, artificially, polyamides can be made by using processes such as step-growth polymerization or solid-phase synthesis yielding materials such as aramids and nylons.
  • Polyamide is primarily used for complex models, small series of components, prototypes, functional models, and end-products. Its applications include casings, architectural models, art, twisty puzzles, fashion pieces, jewelry, and gadgets.
  • In the global 3D polyamide market, the laser sintering technology is largely used to develop end-products from 3D polyamide.
