HP Nylon Plastic
- story by MaterialDistrict
HP Nylon Plastic is Nylon 12 (PA12) printed on the new HP Jet Fusion 3D 4200 printer. HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology is a new printing process which uses agents and lamps to selectively fuse models in a powder bed. The multi-agent process fuses each layer together producing parts with a tensile strength in the z-axis which is comparable to the strength in the x-y plane.
This nylon material has excellent mechanical properties, using powder bed printing technologies. The strength makes it an excellent choice for functional parts, such as drone parts, RC cars, mechanical fixtures, camera mounts and phone cases. The surface is smooth, finished and semi-glossy.
