PA12 Black Nylon

PA12 Black is a high tensile strength nylon available for Multi Jet Fusion.

PA 12 Black

Product Description

PA 12 Black is a high tensile strength nylon suitable for prototypes and end-use production parts. Final parts exhibit quality surface finishes, fine feature resolution, and more consistent mechanical properties when compared to processes like selective laser sintering.

 

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.
