3D Systems CastForm™ PS Plastic for SLS® Systems
Categories: Polymer; Rapid Prototyping Polymer

Material Notes: For use with all selective laser sintering (SLS®) systems.

  • Create patterns directly rather than through indirect methods
  • Complex investment casting patterns
    • Reactive metals like titanium
    • Low melt-temperature metals such as aluminum, magnesium and zinc
    • Ferrous and non-ferrous metals
  • Economic, low-volume production castings without tooling
  • Smaller parts can be joined to create very large patterns
  • Sacrificial, expendable patterns

  • Functions like foundry wax and is “foundry friendly”
  • Low residual ash content (< 0.02%)
  • Short burnout cycle
  • Easy-to-process plastic
  • Good plastic powder recycle characteristics

All information provided by 3D Systems.
