When to use Nylon (MJF)?

HP PA 12 is very ideal to be used in producing prototypes and functional parts. HP PA 11 on the other hand is more ductile and has higher resistance to impact than the PA 12. Because of these properties, PA 11 is best to be used in parts with movable and flexible features such as living hinges and snap fits. HP Glass-filled nylon has improved thermal stability. Since it contains glass beads, it can produce parts with higher stiffness than that of standard PA 12.
Pros of Nylon (MJF)
Produce strong, functional, detailed complex parts • Robust thermoplastic produces highdensity parts with balanced property profiles and strong structures. • Provides excellent chemical resistance to oils, greases, aliphatic hydrocarbons, and alkalies.2 •Ideal for complex assemblies, housings, enclosures, and watertight applications.
