FDM Nylon 12CF™ is a carbon-filled thermoplastic with excellent structural characteristics. The material is comprised of a blend of Nylon 12 resin and chopped carbon fiber, at a loading of 35% by weight. This combination produces one of the strongest thermoplastics in the FDM® material portfolio. It has the highest flexural strength of any FDM thermoplastic, resulting in the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio. Appropriate uses include strong but lightweight tooling applications and functional prototypes in the aerospace, automotive, industrial and recreational manufacturing industries.
·Unparalleled toughness and a simple, clean process — free of powders. ·Nylon offers the best Z-axis lamination and highest impact strength of any FDM thermoplastic, as well as excellent chemical resistance. ·Designed for tooling, jigs and fixtures to covers, panels and vibration resistant components. ·Primarily used in aerospace, automotive and consumer goods industries. ·Makes durable prototypes for snap-fit panels and impact-protective components
