Nylon 12

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
Nylon 12 is one of the toughest FDM materials. This is due to having the highest elongation at break and impact strength of any FDM material. Vastly improved properties in the Z axis also add to the toughness of this material. This material is good for applications requiring fatigue, vibration and chemical resistance in addition to applications requiring a more ductile material.

Key features

  • High fatigue resistance
  • Exposure to shock, repeat load cycles, stress or vibration


  • Panels, covers, housings with snap-fit clips
  • Environmental control ducting or venting
  • Drill guides
  • Parts exposed to high vibration, repetitive stress
