Nylon 12 3D Printing new Material Fortus

New Nylon 12 Material Thats Tough

Stratasys introduced FDM Nylon 12 for Fortus 3D Printing Production Systems earlier this month. The new material makes it possible to 3D print jigs, fixtures and tooling with optimized durability, dimensional stability and impact strength. Nylon 12 was designed to enhance strength and toughness while reducing the residual stresses and warp that have prevented semi-crystalline material use in the past.

These several key improvements out-performs on toughness and mechanical properties of other nylon materials, exhibiting 100% improvement in elongation at break and also offers superior fatigue and chemical resistance. FDM Nylon 12 is also the first FDM material that can be annealed, improving the temperature and mechanical properties of 3D printed parts. [ Source ]
