Nylon PA is a durable nylon 12 material used for real-world testing and functional end-use parts. This material has great surface finish and feature detail, low moisture absorbtion, and good chemical resistance. Nylon PA is also compliant with autoclave sterilization, making it a great choice for some medical applications.
Nylon GF is a rigid glass-filled nylon 12 material used for real-world testing and functional end-use parts. This material has excellent mechanical stiffness, superior demensional stability, and nice surface finish. Nylon GF can also perform at elevated temperature environments making it a good choice for some thermal testing applications.
Nylon HST is mineral fiber reinforced nylon 12 material that provides an exceptional combination of strength, stiffness, and temperature resistance. This material has good surface finish and feature detail, high specific stiffness, and anisotropic mechanical properties. Nylon HST also performs well in load-bearing applications at elevated temperatures.
Nylon D80 is an impact-resistant nylon 11 material that offers the toughness of injection-molded polypropylene and ABS. This rugged material is used heavily in the aerospace industry to produce housings, enclosures, and ductwork. Its durabilty, flexibility, and moderate level of detail make D80 a good choice for a variety of applications, especially for end-use parts.
Nylon EX is an impact-resistant nylon 11 material that offers the toughness of injection-molded polypropylene and ABS. Where Nylon EX stands out from other laser sintered nylons is in its ability to absorb impact, stress and force in all axes and flex without breaking. Yet with all its toughness, it still provides fine feature detail, smooth surface finishing, and excellent dimensional tolerance. Compared to most other laser sintered materials and FDM plastics that are deposited in a very stratified "weave" style, it provides superior Z axis mechanical properties more like injection molded plastic.
Nylon CG is a stiff, light weight carbon fiber and glass-filled nylon 11 material with a natural dark grey/black appearance. This material has a high strength to weight ratio, anisotropic properties, is non-conductive, and RF transparent. It was designed with the aerospace industry in mind. Nylon CG can also perform in elevated temperature environments making it a good choice for some thermal testing applications.
Nylon FR-106 is an impact-resistant nylon 11 material that offers the toughness of injection-molded polypropylene and ABS. This durable and impact-resistant material also meets FAR 25 standards making it an excellent choice for end-use aerospace applications. FR-106 has a very low minimum wall thickness requirement of .030", allowing designers and aerospace engineers to save space and weight with this durable and flame-retardant material.
