Excellent fatigue resistance and toughness
– Suitable for snap-fits and vibration
– Moderate chemical resistance
– High-fatigue endurance
– Repetitive snap fits
– Friction-fit inserts
FDM Nylon 12 is the same tough nylon material popular in traditional manufacturing for its superb price-performance. You can create advanced prototypes and custom tooling for applications that demand high fatigue resistance — with clean, hassle-free FDM Technology
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 the highest impact strength of any FDM thermoplastic, as well as excellent chemical resistance.
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.
