PA-CX12 is our high-performance nylon filament with a broad range of mechanical and chemical properties. These properties include but are not limited to, high impact (even at low temperatures), crack & scratch resistance, food/water contact acceptable, superior chemical & weathering resistance backed by a very low water absorption and excellent dimensional stability. PA-CX12 is the perfect nylon filament for the (semi)professional print user who is looking for the perfect combination of printability and mechanical properties. PA-CX12 is one of the best solutions for industrial grade applications that need to last.

PA-CX12 is available from stock in clear, white and black. For other colours a minimum of 40kg ± 10% is required.
PA-CX12 is available in nearly any type of packaging and labelling, but will always be supplied in a vacuum bag, due to the moisture sensitivity of Polyamides. Ask our team to help you customizing your product.
PA-CX12 needs to be dried for good 3D print results.
A standard air-circulated oven is sufficient. A guideline for drying is 2-3 hours at 110-130˚C for 100 gram (Please take care to remove the spool holding the filament as it will melt at much lower temperatures.).
Recommended temperature for heated bed is 80-100˚C or even higher.
PA-CX12 will not bond perfect to glass, but adheres well to a variety of “print stickers” and other bed adhesives.
PA-CX12 can be used on most common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.
Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
