Unbreakable- extreme toughness and durability makes Fiberlogy NYLON PA12 best suited for prints requiring strength and durability that hold up over time/continual use, while offering flexibility (Example: gears, rollers, skate board wheels, and more)
The high flexibility of Nylon PA12 makes it a great option for prints with thin walls where strength and flexibility are both required
Nylon PA12 is best defined by its ability to withstand wear and tear (ABS is better known for its strength)
Engineered and created in Poland using highly specialized machinery and raw materials
You can also order a NYLON PA12 Sample to test from our Samples Collection ; create a custom sample pack to compare different options to find the exact right material for your project.
EVOLUTION OF DURABILITY
Thanks to its resistance to high temperatures, alcohol and chemicals, Nylon is particularly useful for mechanical and technical applications.
It is extremely durable, strong and unbreakable.
It is easily machined with tools designed for metal processing and it is also easily painted, which makes it even more versatile and functional.
It is incredibly flexible – it expands by 50% before it breaks. However, it is not resistant to concentrated alkalis and acids.
