Nylon 12

Nylon 12 is the same tough nylon popular in traditional manufacturing for its superb price-performance.

Key Nylon 12 Features

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.

  • High fatigue resistance
  • Strong chemical resistance
  • High fatigue endurance, including repetitive snap fits and friction-fit inserts.
  • Colours include black.
Spec Sheet

Characteristics of Nylon 12

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.
