Nylon 6

SSYSicons

Nylon 6 combines strength and toughness that is superior to other FDM thermoplastics. It is suitable for applications that require strong, customized parts, and tooling that lasts longer and withstands rigorous functional testing.

Characteristics
  • Tough and durable
  • Impact resistant
  • Chemical resistant
Options
  • Available in black
  • Hands-free Support removal
  • Available on Fortus 900mc systems only
Uses
  • Functional prototypes and manufacturing aids
  • Automotive, aerospace, consumer goods and industrial manufacturing.
Advantages
  • Combines the strength of ULTEM 9085 with the toughness of Nylon
  • Overall, higher strength/stiffness and better appearance compared to Nylon 12
  • Specially formulated for FDM printing, delivering the right balance of Nylon 6 properties and ability to successfully print FDM parts
  • Hands-free Support removal
