Nylon 6

Nylon 6

FDM Nylon 6TM combines strength and toughness superior to other FDM Thermoplastics, for applications that require strong, customized parts and tooling that lasts longer and withstands rigorous functional testing.
Engineered with nylon 6, a popular thermoplastic for manufacturing, this material works with the Fortus 900mcTM to produce durable parts with a clean finish and high break resistance. FDM Nylon 6 is ideal for product manufacturers and development engineers in automotive, aerospace, consumer goods and industrial manufacturing.
