The white, slightly translucent, parts are characterized by high impact resistance and elongation at break. They do not splinter even under the highest mechanical loads. Compared to PA 12, they have higher temperature resistance and nearly constant mechanical properties over a wide temperature range. The material PA 1101 is based on renewable resources (castor oil).

|Typical mechanical properties in xy print direction|
|Tensile modulus||1600 MPa|
|Tensile strength||48 MPa|
|Elongation at break||45%|
|Melting temperature (20°C/min)||201°C|
|Heat deflection temperature (1.80 MPa)||46°C|
|Heat deflection temperature (0.65 MPa)||180°C|
This material is ideally suited for producing functional elements that require high material strength (e.g. living hinges) and/or impact resistance. Therefore, components for which fragmentation is inadmissible (e.g. in the interior of vehicles) are among the typical fields of application.
