Nylon 12

Nylon 12 parts built on a Fortus 3D Production System 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.

Applications:

FDM Nylon 12 is ideal for applications that demand high fatigue endurance, including repetitive snap fits and friction-fit inserts. 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, FDM Nylon 12 makes durable prototypes for snap-fit panels and impact-protective components.
