Material Description

FDM Nylon 6 provides a great balance between flexibility and toughness by boasting the largest percentage of elongation to break out of the three varieties of Stratasys FDM Nylon based materials. The semi-crystalline nature of this polyamide provides an aesthetic luster and great chemical resistance to both acids and alkali-based solvents. This is a great choice for manufacturers and product development engineers across a wide variety of industries from consumer products to automotive component testing.
