Tough Nylon Material Launched
Stratasys has launched a new Nylon 12 material for the Fortus range with extreme levels of toughness.
The material was launched at EuroMold 2013 and can be seen on this short video:
Nylon 12 has the following key characteristics:
- Extreme fatigue resistance;
- Excellent elongation at break (6x higher than any previous FDM materials);
- Forgiving for pressed inserts;
- Very high impact resistance (5x higher than any previous FDM materials).
Nylon 12 is perfect for applications where high repetitive fatigue and toughness are required -; for example snap-fit parts.
Stratasys continues to innovate in materials development to enable ever-more realistic rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing applications.
Nylon 12 is available for the Fortus 360mc, Fortus 400mc and Fortus 900mc systems.
