In this video, you’ll learn the must-know information about Nylon PA 12 for 3D printing. It’s the most popular 3D printing material in the additive manufacturing industry and will therefore be explained thoroughly, especially in relation to SLS 3D printing. We’ll go over Nylon 12’s pro’s and con’s, chemical resistance, strength, water absorption, applications and more.

00:00 Intro

00:23 First, you’ll learn about the different 3D printing processes Nylon 12 was created for and how it’s optimised for SLS 3D printing.

00:44 Next, we’ll discuss the composition of the polymer Nylon 12, what it's made up of and how it got its name.

1:09 After that, we’ll show how Nylon 12 is printed with SLS 3D printing and what surface finishes are available.

1:30 In this part of the video, you’ll learn about the benefits of Nylon 12, starting with its ability to print complex and detailed parts.

2:09 Here, Nylon 12’s strength is explained.

2:29 Next, we’ll go over Nylon 12’s chemical resistance.

2:39 As a final benefit, you’ll learn why Nylon 12 is so stable over longer periods of time

3:15 Finally, we’ll discuss some of the applications that Nylon 12 is used in.
