FAQ

What makes HP PA 12 different from ABS and resin?

We print items from Hewlett Packard’s branded polyamide. HP PA 12 is more durable and chemical-resistant than ABS and resins.

ABS melts at 105 °C, whereas HP PA 12 melts at 187 °C. Since the polyamide is also stress and vibration-resistant, it is often used in both the aerospace and automotive industries.

The durability of the final product depends not only on the material but also on the thickness of the structure. For best results, follow our pre-printing model preparation guide.

More details about PA 12 are provided in Hewlett Packard’s specifications.
