Nylon PA6 is a strong and heat-resistant material commonly used to print strong and functional parts.
Nylon (polyamide PA) is a fantastic all-round material with high precision and a good value for money. It exhibits excellent strength and flexibility, making it highly versatile and suitable for various applications such as functional parts and jewelry. Whether in thin sections or thick sections, Nylon PA6 can meet the required specifications. It is available in a wide range of colors, and its surface can be polished and dyed to achieve desired aesthetics. Nylon PA6 is commonly 3D printed using industrial-grade 3D printers, specifically through the Selective Laser Sintering process. It's worth noting that Nylon PA6 offers higher strength compared to PA12 but has a higher water absorption rate.
The technical properties of Nylon PA6 are as follows:
|Tensile Strength||66 - 74 MPa|
|Tensile Modulus||3457 - 3700 MPa|
|Tensile Elongation||2 - 4%|
|Flexural Strength||90 - 100 MPa|
|Flexural Modulus||2842 - 3350 MPa|
|HDT (0.45 MPa)||189 - 192°C|
|HDT (1.8 MPa)||93 - 103°C|
Please note that the provided technical properties represent the typical range for Nylon PA6 material.
