Polymer Material Selection

Nylon PA 12

An engineering grade thermoplastic for high-density parts with extreme dimensional accuracy and fine detail for functional prototyping and final parts. Nylon PA 12 has excellent chemical resistance to oils, greases, aliphatic hydrocarbons and alkalis.

Common Applications:

  • Complex assemblies
  • Lattice structures
  • Housing
  • Enclosures & connectors

Nylon PA 12 S

Nylon PA 12 S is a thermoplastic 3D printing material engineered for multi jet fusion (MJF) technology. The material offers 70% smoother surface finish compared to PA 12 along with a reusability rate of 85%. Additionally PA 12 S reduces cost per part by up to 25%.

Common Applications:

  • Dental Molds
  • Consumer Goods
  • Aesthetic Covers
  • Volume Prototyping

Nylon PA 12 White

This engineering-grade thermoplastic yields high-quality functional production parts in a premium white finish. PA 12 W (Pure White) is ideal for strong, complex parts with balanced property profiles and strong structures. In addition to high consistency, this robust material has high reusability.

Common Applications:

  • Consumer goods
  • Prosthetics & medical devices
  • Fashion & wearables
  • Household appliances

Nylon PA 11

This thermoplastic delivers optimal mechanical properties, and is known for producing strong, ductile, functional parts. PA 11 also provides excellent chemical resistance and enhanced elongation-at-break. Ideal for impact resistance and ductility.

Common Applications:

  • Prosthesis
  • Insoles
  • Sporting goods
  • Hinges

BASF ULTRASINT® TPU

This MJF specific thermoplastic from BASF offers high wear/abrasion resistance, and is ideal for applications needing rubber-like flexibility and excellent shock absorption. TPU 88A – BASF ULTASINT 3D prints with high accuracy and detail, in addition to having smooth surfaces.

Common Applications:

  • Soft touch grips
  • Handheld tools
  • Flexible consumer goods
  • Automotive hoses and wiring insulation
