Engineering Thermoplastics

Below is a list of Engineering Thermoplastics
PC-ISO

//Create biocompatible parts with superior strength

PC-ISO is a strong, heat-resistant engineering plastic commonly used in food and drug packaging and medical device manufacturing. It is biocompatible, gamma and EtO sterilizable and complies with ISO 10993 and USP Class VI.

PC-ABS

//3D print in high-impact engineering thermoplastic

Engineers and designers use PC-ABS in demanding applications like power-tool prototyping and industrial equipment manufacturing. 3D printing in real engineering thermoplastics results in stronger parts, more confident testing and prototypes that mimic the material properties of the final product.

PC-ABS works with soluble support material, meaning support removal is hands-free and complex parts with deep internal cavities take no extra effort, and is available in black.

PC

//Build strong parts in engineering thermoplastic

PC and FDM Technology produce functional prototypes, tooling and end-use parts in a familiar, durable engineering material. PC’s high tensile and flexural strength make it ideal for demanding prototyping needs, tooling and fixtures, and patterns for metal bending and composite work. Low-volume manufacturing and customization become feasible, and testing provides more confidence.

PC is available in white and works with breakaway and soluble support materials. For maximum unattended build time, PC is available in Xtend 500 Fortus Plus (500 cubic inches of material) boxes for compatible systems.

FDM Nylon 12

//3D print tough parts for advanced applications

Nylon 12 parts built on a Fortus 3D Production System are the toughest in the industry, exhibiting 100-300 percent better elongation at break and superior fatigue resistance over any other additive manufacturing technology. Nylon offers the best Z-axis lamination and highest impact strength of any FDM thermoplastic, as well as excellent chemical resistance.Nylon 12 works with soluble support material and is available in black.

FDM Nylon 12CF

//Highest strength to stiffness-to-weight ratio of any Stratasys FDM material

FDM Nylon 12CF is a carbon-filled thermoplastic with excellent structural characteristics. The material is comprised of a blend of Nylon 12 resin and chopped carbon fiber, at a loading of 35% by weight. This combination produces one of the strongest thermoplastics in the FDM® material portfolio. It has the highest flexural strength of any FDM thermoplastic, resulting in the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio.

Appropriate uses include strong but lightweight tooling applications and functional prototypes in the aerospace, automotive, industrial and recreational manufacturing industries.

FDM Nylon 6

//Superior strength and toughness

FDM Nylon 6 offers the best combination of strength and toughness of any FDM material. It works with the Fortus 900mc to build durable prototypes that accurately predict functional performance, manufacturing tools that withstand the rigors of a production environment, or low-volume production parts that meet high functional requirements.

FDM Nylon 6 is available in black and uses soluble support material.

Applications:

  • Build jigs, fixtures, guides, guards and other manufacturing aids that require good tensile and mechanical strength.
  • Test the functional performance of components like pedals, handles, bindings, gears, joints, bearings, fasteners and covers before investing in tooling.
  • Eliminate the time and cost of tooling for low-volume, high-requirement parts on aircraft or industrial machinery by manufacturing them on the Fortus 900mc.
