What is Nylon?
From many household toys, to parts used in aerospace exploration, Nylon (polymide) is used in a wide variety of industries including engineering and manufacturing. This is an ideal material for applications that require impact and abrassion resistance. Nylon is also well-known for its impressive strength-to-weight ratio, flexibility, low friction, and corrosion resistance. With its ability to withstand significant mechanical stress, Nylon is a great choice for 3D printing tools, functional prototypes, and end-use parts.
