What is Nylon?

Available with many different properties and additive, Nylon (Polyamide) is a widely used plastic throughout many industries. Its low friction and high wear resistance makes it an ideal choice for many industrial applications from both machining ans 3D printing manufacturing methods. It is also very ductile in PA12 and PA11 forms.


  • Low friction
  • Varying additives and version to alter properties
  • Ductile
  • High wear resistance

Why use Nylon?

Available with glass and carbon filled versions this material can be machined as well as 3D printed making it incredibly versatile for uses such as enclosures, housings, handles, manufacturing aids and gears.
