PolyMide™ CoPA is a copolymer of Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6 combining high tensile strength properties from Nylon 6 with heat resistance properties from Nylon 6.6. Warp-Free™ technology provides ease of printing by slowing down the crystallization allowing CoPA to be easily printed on open bed printers. Displaying outstanding mechanical and thermal properties, CoPA is suited for parts in demanding environments.
What is the difference between PolyLite CosPLA version A and B?
After a couple of formula iteration, we developed a PolyLite™ CosPLA which was able to outperform the durability of regular PLA while being much easier to sand and paint. However we found a way to improve the sand-ability even more and another way to almost double the toughness of the material. Unfortunately we could not implement both technology at the same time, therefore we decided to go ahead and release two version:
Version A with the first technology improvement to enhance the sand-ability even more.
Version B with the second technology improvement to enhance the durability even more.
It is important to note that BOTH displays better durability and sand-ability than regular PLA while being easier to paint.
What is the shrinkage rate of PolyMide™ CoPA?
The shrinkage rate depends on the print model size and infill setting.
Do you need to anneal PolyMide™ CoPA?
PolyMide™ CoPA displays outstanding mechanical and thermal properties when fully crystallized. The printed part will not reach full crystallization after the printing process, an additional step is required: Annealing.
You can anneal PolyMide™ CoPA by placing your part in the oven at 80_C for 6h.
Does PolyMide™ CoPA requires an enclosed printer?
No, all our Nylon features our Warp-Free Technology which means it does not require a heated bed or heated chamber of more than 50_C.
PolyMide™ CoPA can be printed on a 30-40_C bed without enclosure.
