READY FOR DYEING

White Nylon PA12 represents a new HP innovation in Multi Jet Fusion technology. This material not only retains the excellent properties of classic Nylon PA12, but also adds the ability to absorb dyes of different pigments thanks to its white colouration. This feature opens up new possibilities in the field of aesthetic customisation, allowing designers to explore a wider range of colour options without compromising the mechanical qualities of the material.

 

MECHANICAL PROPERTIES AND DESIGN FREEDOM

Nylon PA12 White, processed using HP Multi Jet Fusion technology, avoids the need for supports during printing, offering unprecedented design freedom. This is essential for designers wishing to explore complex shapes and geometries, while ensuring maximum part strength and durability. The combination of these mechanical properties with an advanced printing process makes it the ideal choice for the production of functional parts that require precision and reliability.

 

CHEMICAL RESISTANCE AND VERSATILITY

White Nylon PA12 not only offers superior chemical resistance, but it is resistant to moisture, grease and hydrocarbons too. This versatility makes it suitable for a wide range of industrial and creative applications. In addition, its low price makes it a solid alternative to injection moulding, especially when a functional material in the specific colour desired is required.

COMMENT

Nylon PA12 White, presented by Weerg, represents a significant innovation in the field of 3D printing thanks to HP Multi Jet Fusion technology. This material combines the excellent mechanical properties of Nylon PA12 with the versatility of a white colour, which can be further customised with different dyes. HP Multi Jet Fusion processing technique avoids the need for supports, giving designers unprecedented freedom in the design phase.

Pros

HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology: This advanced technology enables the printing of complex pieces without supports, offering unprecedented design freedom.

Dye-ready: The white colouring of the material is optimal for absorbing dyes of different pigments, allowing for extensive colour customisation.

Excellent Mechanical Properties: Retains the mechanical properties of classic Nylon PA12, making it ideal for functional parts requiring strength and durability.

Good Chemical Resistance: Its resistance to a variety of chemicals makes it ideal for use in industrial environments and applications requiring high durability.

Cons

Parts with large flat surfaces may deform: During 3D printing, material heating can lead to differences in cooling rates between the various areas of the item. This discrepancy may cause internal stresses, which in turn can cause parts to cool more quickly to bend or warp, a phenomenon that is particularly noticeable in parts with large flat surfaces. To prevent this distortion, known as "warpage", post-press corrective actions or modifications to the original design may be necessary to ensure dimensional stability.

 

Applications of PA12 White 

Aerospace: Used for the manufacture of lightweight yet strong components, such as fairings and internal structural parts of aircraft, where the combination of light weight and strength is critical.

Oil and gas industry: Used to make flexible piping and equipment components resistant to oil, gas and other corrosive fluids, exploiting its excellent chemical resistance.

Automotive: Applied in the manufacture of interior and exterior vehicle parts, such as engine components, linings and gaskets, where strength and durability are required.

Sports and Leisure: Nylon PA12 White is used in the production of sports equipment, such as tennis rackets, gym equipment and bicycle parts, where the combination of strength and flexibility is essential.

Electronics: Used as an insulating and protective material for cables, connectors and housings of electronic devices, due to its resistance to temperature and chemicals.

Fashion: White nylon is used for the production of strong and lightweight accessories, such as belt buckles, glasses and shoe parts, where lightness and strength are valued qualities.

 

Comparison with other materials

Resin: Although resin offers very fine detail and a smooth finish, Nylon PA12 White outperforms resin in terms of strength and flexibility, making it more suitable for parts that must withstand high loads or wear.

ABS: ABS is a popular 3D printing material due to its strength and durability. However, Nylon PA12 White has greater abrasion and chemical resistance, as well as better dimensional stability, making it a better choice in many applications.

Nylon PA12: When comparing White Nylon PA12 and the classic Nylon PA12, some key differences emerge that influence the choice of material according to specific requirements. The classic Nylon PA12 is widely recognised for its excellent mechanical properties and chemical resistance, making it a reliable material for a wide range of applications. On the other hand, Nylon PA12 White brings with it the added advantage of white colouring, which not only retains all the qualities of classic Nylon PA12 but also offers the possibility of being dyed in different colours. This feature makes it particularly suitable for projects requiring not only high technical specifications, but also customised aesthetics. Both materials share similar mechanical properties, ensuring strength and durability in the applications for which they are used. However, Nylon PA12 White, due to its readiness for dyeing, proves to be a preferable choice in situations where aesthetics and colour customisation are crucial. In contrast, classic Nylon PA12 continues to be a solid option for more general applications where colouring is not a determining factor.

In conclusion, Nylon PA12 White, with HP advanced Multi Jet Fusion technology, offers a unique combination of versatility, mechanical properties, chemical resistance and colour customisation possibilities. These features make it an excellent choice for a wide range of 3D printing applications, especially when a functional material in a specific colour is required.
