Nylon 12 Powder 6 kg 

Our Nylon 12 Powder is specifically developed for use on the Fuse 1.

Why Choose Nylon 12 Powder :
With high tensile strength and environmental stability, Nylon 12 Powder is suitable for creating complex assemblies and durable parts with minimal water absorption. 

Versatile Prototyping :
Nylon 12 is a highly capable thermoplastic for a range of functional prototypes. 

Dimensional Accuracy :
Print highly detailed parts and complex assemblies with low creep.

Economical Refresh Rate :
Get the most out of your material by printing with up to 70% recycled powder.

Environmental Stability :
Nylon 12 prints absorb very little moisture and are resistant to light, heat, and chemicals.

 

 

Applications

Use Nylon 12 Powder for both functional prototyping and end-use production of complex assemblies and durable parts with high environmental stability.

  • High performance prototyping
  • Permanent jigs, fixtures, and tooling
  • Small batch manufacturing
  • Biocompatible, sterilizable parts*

* Material properties may vary based on part design and manufacturing practices. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to validate the suitability of the printed parts for the intended use.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our Nylon 12 Powder is specifically developed for use on the Fuse 1.

  • Nylon 12 Powder is great for both functional prototypes and end-use parts.
  • REEKON Tools printed this durable prototype for their measuring tool and avoided the need to injection mold 7 different parts for this assembly.
  • Parts printed on the Fuse 1 in Nylon 12 Powder are strong and precise. This rugged enclosure withstands heavy use and is detailed enough to integrate with off-the-shelf hardware.
  • A Formlabs engineer designed and printed his own bike pedals on a prototype of the Fuse 1. The pedals are strong and stable enough for real use on his bike.
  • Kostika Shoes, designed by Kostika Spaho and Ica Paru for luxury footwear brand Ica & Kostika’s the Exobiology collection.

COVID-19 Pandemic

Formlabs is dedicated to helping the medical community address the COVID-19 epidemic and associated supply chain shortages with 3D printing technology. We have many customers in the healthcare space already using Formlabs’ products to test applications for COVID-19 related projects, and recently launched the Formlabs Support Network for COVID-19 Response. This is an initiative to match healthcare organizations and providers with Formlabs customers who are willing to use their printers and volunteer their time to help address critical supply chain shortages and other healthcare needs. We are working closely with health systems, government agencies, and our network of over 1,500 volunteers to help design, prototype, and produce parts to be tested and potentially adopted by clinicians.
