Global Naylon in 3D Printing Market, 2014-2024: by type (PA11 and PA12 or Nylon6 and Nylon 66), by Application (Healthcare, Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, and Others)
Nylon refers to a group of plastics known as polyamides. They are mostly semi-crystalline and generally very tough materials. It is widely used in the application 3D printing as a filament material.3D printing with nylon material offers quick creation of quality functional parts. Nylon is a very strong and durable material, offering some amount of flexibility. It has high-melting point with a very low co-efficient of friction. Nylon based 3D printing can be achieved with fused deposition modelling (FDM), selective laser sintering (SLS), and MultiJet Fusion (MJF). Nylons can be easily blended with numerous other plastics to form composites, enhancing their performance parameters. 3D printing with nylon provides the added benefits of unlimited geometries, iteration and customization, and low-volume affordability. It is stronger than ABS or PLA plastics. It appears as transparent white color. Nylon filaments achieve a better grip on the bed with 3D printing.
3D printing with nylon can be categories grade into PA11 and PA12 (nylon 6 and nylon 66).Based on available form it is sub classified into powder based and filament. Nylon in 3D printing widely adopted in end use industry application included healthcare, aerospace & defense, automotive, electrical & electronics. It is widely used for customizing and finishing of the modules. It is widely used in aerospace and automotive industry for customizing tools, gears, jigs and fixtures, RC cars, as well as prototypes for interior panels, low-heat air-intake components and antenna covers. It is also used in 3D printed garments, surfboard fins, living hinges, rigid parts and flexible joints. Combined with powder-bed technologies like SLS and Multi Jet Fusion, 3D printing with nylon can be used to create moving and interlocking part. In medical industry, nylon can be used for prototyping and creating educational anatomical models, in addition to producing medical end-use parts.
