Nylon PA12, on the other hand, is exceptionally strong even when temperatures dip below freezing. It is characterized by high strength, stiffness, strong resistance to cracking under stress, and an excellent long-term constant behavior. Furthermore, with a lower concentration of amides (nitrogen-containing organic compounds) than any other commercially available polyamide, Nylon PA12 absorbs very little moisture, has an excellent resistance to chemicals including hydraulic fluids, oil, fuels, grease, salt water, and solvents, dampens noise and vibration, and is highly processable.
PA12 objects can go through a number of post-treatment operations: they can be either polished, varnished. Regarding Multi Jet Fusion PA12, unpolished is the only finishing option offered at our online 3D printing service for now. However, the surface remains exceptionally smooth after coming out of a printer and is perfectly suited for the creation of finished products.
