What is the refresh rate?
It is the ratio of a minimum amount of fresh powder needed in a mixture of material used in an SLS 3D printer. A lower refresh ratio means better cost-efficiency of the material.
How does it work?
The amount of needed fresh powder is automatically calculated by our software and shown on the printer screen after the print job is finished. Just add shown amount of material into the mixing cycle of used material and you can start your next job with refreshed material
Standard group of powders great for prototyping, creating detailed objects with excellent surface resolution and manufacturing final parts
This group of powders helps you create functional elements with an extended lifecycle and high mechanical & chemical & thermal resistance.Our materials open up new opportunities for applications in the electronics, automotive, and chemical industries
Flexible TPU and TPE materials for prototyping and manufacturing usable parts. Wherever you need flexibility with great mechanical properties use one of our rubber material
Cost-efficent rigid polyamide. Best surface quality
Great mechanical and impact resistance. High elongation at break
ESD material for cases. Bio-sourced material
One of the strongest and most versatile materials available on the powder market dedicated to SLS printing technology
A high resistance nylon 12 with very good dimensioning accuracy of prints
Rubber material for prototypes. Standard material for TPU parts.

Visual prototypes can be dyed. Best elongation rubber
New TPU with high strength and flexibility, ideal for use in gaskets, flexible joint covers, vibration dampers
The differences between the powders can be found in the table below.
In Sinterit we distinguish three powder conditions: print
SLS polyamide powder used for 3D printing is considered particulate matter because of its size. Polyamide powder particles are generally 40 micrometers or smaller. Powder vacuumed in an ordinary vacuum cleaner could cause an explosion.
Such materials are subject to labor regulations on air quality and occupational safety. The procedures call for appropriate maintenance of powders at work. Only certified industrial vacuum cleaners should be used for cleaning such materials. More information about the ATEX Vacuum cleaner can be found here.
