Additive Technology: FFF

Nylon

A non-abrasive, engineering grade thermoplastic. Nylon is extremely versatile on it’s own or it can be strengthened with any of our continuous fiber reinforcements.

Tough Never Looked This Good

Print durable parts with a beautiful surface finish.

Nylon parts have a smooth white surface that is non-abrasive and easily painted. It’s best suited for non-marring applications that require repeated use and handling. Nylon can be printed on it’s own or reinforced with any of our continuous fibers.

Advantages Of Nylon

nylon-cam-case

Non-Abrasive Surface

Our Nylon material is resilient, with a non-abrasive smooth surface. It’s great for applications requiring fatigue and vibration resistance.

nylon-durable

Industrial Durability

Nylon is both impact and chemical resistant, with the highest elongation at break. This makes it one of our most durable thermoplastic materials.

nylon-fiber

Fiber Reinforcement

We can increase the mechanical properties of Nylon parts by adding a continuous fiber reinforcement to strengthen specific infill areas.
