Nylon 12 CF Material
Nylon 12 CF is an FDM, carbon-fibre reinforced thermoplastic which provides an ideal substitute to metal tooling. This material is compatible with the Fortus production systems.
The material properties of Nylon 12 CF include high strength-to-weight ratio as well as high tensile strength and is notably light in weight. It’s unique properties allow it’s use within a variety of applications across a wide set of industries. It is ideal for functional prototyping processes and tooling applications. Nylon 12 CF is particularly useful in the following industries:
Aerospace: UAV components and tooling
Transportation and Automotive: Bumpers, Fixtures and Brackets
Consumer: Performance and Sporting goods
General Manufacturing: Tooling, fixtures, and other manufacturing aids
