PA 12 Glass Beads

About the Material
PA 12 Glass Beads is a variation of the Nylon PA 12 material for HP Multi Jet Fusion. With 40% glass beads fill, parts made with PA 12 Glass Beads will have all the fine grain, high density and low porosity qualities of typical Nylon 12, but with a higher degree of stiffness and dimensional stability. Additionally, it’s less prone to warpage so it’s a great option for large or flat parts.

Modulus of Elasticity
The texture of this material is slightly smoother than SLS Nylon, but still similar to a very fine grit sandpaper. Un-dyed MJF Nylon is grey, which may vary in shades across the same part of a surface. When dyed black, this material has a matte appearance.
