Nylon 12 Material
FDM Nylon 12 is the same tough nylon material popular in traditional manufacturing for its superb price-performance. Utilizing this tough material you are able to create advanced prototypes and custom tooling for applications that demand high-fatigue resistance with clean and hassle free FDM technology.
Nylon 12 parts that are built on a Fortus 3D Production system are by far the toughest in the industry. Nylon offers the best Z-axis lamination and highest impact strength of any any FDM thermoplastic, as well as an excellent chemical resistance.
FDM Nylon 12 is suited for a variety of applications including:
- Repetitive snap-fits
- Friction fit inserts
- Custom production tooling
- Low-heat air intake components
- Antenna covers
- Prototypes for interior paneling
