Nylon 12 Example Part

Nylon 12 is ideal for applications that demand high fatigue endurance, including repetitive snap fits and friction-fit inserts.

FDM® Nylon 12 is the first material in Stratasys’ new family of nylon offerings, complementing the current portfolio of FDM materials and enabling new applications requiring: repetitive snap fits, high fatigue resistance, strong chemical resistance and press (friction) fit inserts. Nylon 12 is primarily used in aerospace, automotive and consumer goods industries to take on everything from tooling, jigs and fixtures to covers, panels and vibration resistant components. For use with Fortus® 360mc, 400mc & 900mc 3D Production Systems, FDM Nylon 12 offers unparalleled toughness and a simple, clean process – free of powders.

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.
