This is a rigid plastic with excellent machining properties. It has very good resilience and dimensional stability. It also has good sliding wear resistance making it excellent for bearing surfaces, and good electrical insulating properties making it ideal for use in all sorts of electronics projects.
In appearance it is similar to nylon, but with a slightly less shiny surface. It machines superbly using standard HSS or carbide tooling, without the melting and stringing problems associated with most plastic materials. Although significantly more expensive than, say, modelling foam, this material is perfect for most 3D manufacturing projects that need a structural outcome. Ideal for one off GCSE and A level projects for example.
Available in 25 and 50mm thick sheets - colour white (W) or black (B). Nominal size: 500 x 500mm.
