Material Data Sheet

SAF™ PA12 parts are perfect for applications where rigidity is an important requirement. At volume, SAF™ PA12 allows for fine feature resolution, strength and accuracy build after build, and is most suitable for higher tolerance requirements such as for assemblies and connector applications. Tight thermal control on the H350 leads to consistent parts and high nesting densities, and thus more parts per build.

Color options:

Natural Grey, Black, or custom dyed

Quick Facts:

  • Lower cost per part
  • More parts per build
  • Great for assemblies and connector applications
