mFlex SHS

Powder compound for Selective Heat Sintering (SHS) into plastic parts. Parts are for prototypes only, not functional parts. For best properties, parts should be conditioned in high humidity for a few days.
The compound is a mixture of polyamide and polycarbonate. It has been developed for general use for the SHS 3D printing process using a BluePrinter.
The compound is a free flowing and unpigmented white powder. It is delivered in PE-bottles for mixing with the cleaning station compound and filling of drawers in SHS.
Material from printer drawers can be reused after sieving in the BluePrinter Cleaning Station or similar filter.
Material from cake can be downsized and re-used for some applications, as described in the printer manual. Strongly Yellow discolored material should be discarded.
