Nylon PA12 is a high performance engineering plastic with a higher rigidity than other Nylons on the market.
The Nylon family of polymers is widely used in industry for applications where high strength, toughness, and temperature resistance are required. Many other Nylons on the market are manufactured using Nylon 6 or Nylon 6/6. While these Nylons are easy to process and very strong they can lack rigidity needed for many applications. This Nylon maufactured from Nylon 12 resin retains the excellent features you would expect from Nylons such as strength, superb layer adhesion, fantastic bridges, and great toughness. It is also much more rigid, more resistant to higher temperatures, and more chemical resistant.
Nylon PA12 does require a heated bed to print properly, as well as needing higher nozzle temperatures. This material must also be kept dry, and may require drying at 70C for a few hours before printing to ensure that moisture in the filament does not cause bubbles.
Manufactured inside the EU at a facility with which we work closely. Guaranteed to be ±0.05mm in tolerance, but is usually ±0.02mm or better.
