MJF: PA-12 GB Technical Specifications:
UL94 HB Blue Card Certification for HP PA-12GB Material
UL introduced the UL94 blue card, which indicates the type of processing equipment and settings required to claim compliance for each material. The old yellow card system is still valid for traditional processes such as injection molding and extrusion. But yellow card ratings do not apply to 3D printing. For instance, a filament made from UL94 yellow card certified pellets is not UL recognized.
