Properties: Strong, smooth surface (polished), slightly flexible, chemically resistant
Applications: Conceptual models, functional models, medical applications, tools, visual arts
Polyamide (trade name - NYLON) - used by many manufacturers around the world and is well known for its impressive durability, high strength-to-weight ratio, flexibility, low friction coefficient and corrosion resistance. With its ability to withstand significant mechanical stresses, polyamide is a great choice for 3D printing tools, functional prototypes and ready-to-use products. Among FDM threads, the bonding of the nylon layer is stronger than all the others, making it the ideal material for 3D printing for parts that require good structure and mechanical strength.
