DuraForm HST is a fiber-reinforced engineering plastic with excellent stiffness, strength and temperature resistance.

The Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) DuraForm HST material is a fiber filled nylon with anisotropic mechanical properties just like fiber-filled, injection molded materials.  DuraForm HST is ideal for functional prototypes and end-use parts that require high stiffness and/or elevated thermal resistance. 

DuraForm HST can excel in load-bearing applications at higher temperatures.
