PA 680

Category: PA

Material Information

Name: PA 680
Source: Airwolf 3D
Description:

This engineering-grade nylon has been specially designed for FFF 3D printing, can be printed at slightly lower temperatures than other nylon filaments, and is capable of withstanding ethylene oxide and flash steam sterilization processes. Now you can 3D print your medical, dental, or food processing prototypes with a durable, high strength material that can withstand your rigorous applications testing. While this Nylon’s base ingredient is FDA approved as a food and beverage rated material, the process of 3D printing with the material would require further testing and submission to claim FDA approval. This material is manufactured in the USA.
