PA12 40% Glass-Filled Black

A slightly less durable material that offers significant heat deflection. 

PA 12 40% Glass-Filled Black

Product Description

PA12 40% Glass-Filled Black is a 40% glass-filled nylon. Final parts are dyed black. The biggest advantage offered by this material is the heat deflection temperature of 248°F when measured at 264 psi, ranking 2nd best after PA12 Mineral-Filled.

 

Key Product Benefits

  • Near isotropic mechanical properties
  • Water and air proof without additional treatment


Applications

Multi Jet Fusion’s PA 12 black is often used to build housings, enclosures, and fixtures, and can work well for snap fits and hinges.

Tolerances

For well-designed parts, tolerances of ±0.012 in. plus ±0.002 in./in. for each additional inch can typically be achieved. Note that tolerances may change depending on part geometry.
