Explore our dynamic range of materials

The mechanical data we publish for our materials is always from actual test results, as opposed to taken from the manufacturers’ data sheets. As well as using a number of widely used high-performance 3D print materials, we also develop composites using graphite and carbon.

Materials for Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

Sinterworx C6 – Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic

Material Description
A specialised carbon fibre filled plastic ideal for functional components that need to be light and strong. It has the highest strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios of any 3D printed plastic, making it ideal for demanding Motorsport applications. Graphite Additive Manufacturing is the only 3D printing bureau in the UK that offers SinterWorx C6.
