Strong and Impact Resistant

FDM Nylon 6 possesses excellent strength and stiffness while maintaining good impact resistance among the Nylon family of materials. It fills the niche between the more flexible FDM Nylon 12 and the high rigidity of FDM Nylon 12CF. This combination makes it a good choice for tooling that can handle the rigors of a production environment.
