Characterised by its great resistance to impact and able to work continuously at a temperature of up to 120 ºC
PA (Polyamide) is an engineering plastic, characterized by its great resistance to impact and ability to work continuously at a temperature of up to 120 ºC for an extended period of time.
Its semi-flexible behavior derives from a semicrystalline structure, which imparts strength and durability, best suited for the most demanding technical applications. A low coefficient of friction allows for a short-term use in contact with moving parts.
You can purchase PA from our store: BCN3D PA

Build plate adhesion: Magigoo PRO PA
Magigoo PA is designed for professional use, to work exclusively with Polyamide filaments. The part should be relatively easy to remove once it cools and the glue residue should also be easily cleaned off.
It is best to apply Magigoo when the printing bed is cool.
Plastics absorb moisture from the air. For long periods of time without printing, it is
recommended to keep the PA spools in a box or airtight container with desiccant
to keep them dry.
PA emits low levels of gasses and particles when printed. We recommend printing
it in a well-ventilated area to ensure a healthy environment.
