Nylon 12 is the same tough nylon popular in traditional manufacturing for its superb price-performance.
Nylon 12 parts built on our machines are the toughest in the industry, exhibiting 100-300 percent better elongation at break and superior fatigue resistance over any other additive manufacturing technology. Nylon offers the best Z-axis lamination and highest impact strength of any FDM thermoplastic, as well as excellent chemical resistance.
Aerospace and automotive applications include custom production tooling, jigs and fixtures, and prototypes for interior paneling, low-heat air-intake components and antenna covers. For product development in consumer goods, Nylon 12 makes durable prototypes for snap-fit panels and impact-protective components.
