What are the commonly materials used for prototyping processing?

May 17 , 2023 | Blog

Prototyping processing and parts processing in the industrial market is common, but also product research and development must go through a process, hand plate is done, in order to carry out batch production, can help enterprises reduce research and development costs and risks, quickly seize the market.

Metal Prototyping processing is common aluminum alloy and stainless steel these two kinds, aluminum alloy density is low, but high strength, good processing performance, excellent welding characteristics and electroplating, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and no deformation after processing, material dense without defects and easy polishing, color film is easy, good oxidation effect and other excellent characteristics, after sandblasting oxidation treatment, It will look better. Stainless steel is resistant to air, steam, water and other weak corrosive media, acid and alkali resistance, high density, good corrosion resistance, not easy to damage.

ABS is a kind of engineering plastic commonly used in the plastic industry. It has excellent impact resistance, heat resistance, low temperature resistance, chemical resistance and electrical properties. It also has the characteristics of easy processing, stable product size, good surface luster, etc. It can be disassembled for processing, which can meet the basic requirements of various industries.

POM: It is also called Saigang. Judging from the name, it is a kind of hard and dense material with smooth surface and good gloss. It has good bending strength, fatigue resistance and wear resistance, which is suitable for making some gear parts.

PMMA: commonly known as acrylic, also known as organic glass, better transparency, transparent effect is better than PC material, and excellent heat resistance.

PA: Also known as nylon, high mechanical strength, good toughness, non-viscose water, do not recommend disassembly processing.

PC: High impact strength, good dimensional stability, colorless and transparent, good coloring, good wear resistance, can withstand high temperature, is a transparent material.

PP: polypropylene, low density, strength rigid, hardness and heat resistance are better than low pressure polyethylene, can be used at the temperature of 100°.

PPS: Is a high temperature resistant material, can be 230 degrees without deformation.
