Nylon,we usually call PA66,which widely be used in making prototype,even is not as widely used as ABS,but it still is important to rapid prototyping.Below is some features of nylon made parts.
1.High mechanical strength,nice toughness and tensile strength.
2.Great fatigue resistance.The nylon parts can retain its mechanical strength after repeated bending,so we commonly make plastic gears with nylon material.
3.High softening point and heat-resistant.
4.Good rub resistance.
5.Good corrosion resistance
1.Poor water absorption and dimensional stability.
3.Poor antistatic property.
