Multipurpose Polymers

EOS Polyamide 12 Powders for 3D Printing

Polyamide 12 (PA 12), also known as nylon, is the most tested material for additive manufacturing on the market. Parts made from nylon are robust, stable for long periods of time, chemically resistant, and extremely versatile. EOS materials based on polyamide 12 are a high-performance alternative to plastics like ABS or PA6 that have proven their value in injection molding. The additively manufactured end products are just as strong, flexible, and durable as injection molded parts. 

Fields of Application

This cost-efficient general-purpose material is suitable for a variety of applications, including functional prototypes and qualified series production parts from the industry.
