Tough Nylon Material Launched

9th December 2013

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.
