Arnite®  T AM1210 (P)

Eco-friendly PBT powder for laser sintering. Third-party proven production readiness.

Well-known PBT powder with dielectric properties

Arnite® T AM1210 (P) is the first-ever PBT powder commercially available for selective laser sintering (SLS). The material is the ideal solution for small series production via additive manufacturing in industrial applications requiring electrical insulation such as automotive electronics.

Arnite® T AM1210 (P) is the first material from Covestro's powder platform, offering customers a well-known material in the industrial sector which can now be considered for small series production of end use parts.

As 3D printing evolves from prototyping to industrial manufacturing, customers need materials such as Arnite® T AM1210 (P) to meet their stringent demands. Arnite® T AM1210 (P) has the same dielectric properties as material used in injection molding processes, making it a material engineers are familiar with and prepared to use. And its production readiness has been extensively proven by an independent global manufacturing leader.

Developed for a wide sinter window, the powder is extremely easy to print. Additionally, Arnite® T AM1210 (P) is environmentally friendly with a high reuse rate and is recyclable to the extent that the material can be brought back to the powder bed process.
