FDM___Nylon_12

FDM® Nylon 12 SPEC SHEET


FDM® Nylon 12 enables 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. FDM Nylon 12 offers unparalleled toughness and a simple, clean process - free of powders.

*Conditioned = Test specimends are conditioned according to procedure A of ASTM D618 (40 hours @ 23C and 50% relative humidity)
**Unconditioned (Dry) = As printed (No soluble support removal)
