A synthetic polyamide thermoplastic known as “glass-filled nylon,” it is one of the most significant materials used in engineering because of its strength and heat resilience. It is produced by either extruding plastic with glass fibres or adding glass powder to polyamide resin. Because glass-filled nylon is electrically non conductive, it can be used as a shield in automotive and electrical uses.
The Global EV Glass-Reinforced Nylon market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
A glass-reinforced plastic powder called Nylon 12 GF Powder from Formlabs has been released. It’s perfect for the Fuse 1 SLS printer’s ability to produce stiff, thermally stable components. As the third material created especially for the Fuse 1 ecosystem, Nylon 12 GF Powder gives Formlabs’ clients the ability to scale their own manufacturing at a reasonable cost.
In the Formlabs SLS materials library, the new substance joins Nylon 12 Powder and Nylon 11 Powder, allowing customers to expand production with a variety of material properties and diversify their operations.
This brand-new material, which combines the functionality of Nylon 12 with the rigidity and heat resistance of glass filler, is the go-to option for any application needing sustained load-bearing capacity and high thermal resistance. The heavy vehicle body models are held at an angle by brackets in the automobile industry so that they can be painted or have other parts attached to them.
Low volume, custom-sized brackets are always in demand, but they are expensive and time-consuming to produce. This is because the brackets frequently need to be replaced if the type or model of the vehicle changes. Since so many car components are made of metal, there is a lot of welding involved in the assembly process, and all manufacturing tools are used in environments with high temperatures.
A cheap, quick, and low-waste option is to print end-use brackets from Nylon 12 GF Powder. Electronic housings and enclosures that need to be rigid and strong can benefit from Nylon 12 GF Powder’s high tensile modulus.
