What is PA-12?

PA-12 stands for Polyamide-12. This filament falls under the nylon filaments category. Nylon is popular in the plastics industry, because it is a strong, semi-flexible material with high wear resistance.

PA-12 Composition

Nylons are commonly made with Nylon 6 or Nylon 6/6. These nylons are easy to handle and are very strong; however,  they lack the stiffness necessary many applications require. PA-12 is made of Nylon 12 resin and is, therefore, a high-quality filament with high rigidity.

PA-12 Properties

PA-12 is a strong but semi-flexible material that has great impact and heat resistance, while maintaining a high level of resistance to fatigue. PA-12 models can be used over and over in perpetual motions without showing signs of wear and tear.

PA-12 Application

Nylon is ideal for products that require both firmness and some flexibility, such as prostheses. It can be used in environments with a temperature up to about 90 degrees. The material is therefore great for printing gears and other moving parts  where friction is inevitable.
