TECAFIL PA12 natural - 1.75 mm

PA12 Filament

In addition to our PA6 filament, our polyamide filament portfolio also includes PA12. Our TECAFIL PA12 natural is an unfilled polyamide 3D printing filament. This PA12 filament is a semi crystalline material characterised by high chemical resistance and high toughness. Compared to other PA filaments based on polyamide 6, our PA12 filament has the lowest water absorption. PA12 3D printing enables a wide range of applications for long-term stability in humid environments. Furthermore, 3D printing of PA12 offers good impact resistance, wear resistance and good slide friction for your printed functional prototypes or series applications.
Our filaments made of PA6 and PA12 enable the printing of engineering plastics and thus the fabrication of parts that can withstand demanding applications. The melting point of approx. 180 °C enables simple and uncomplicated use of the PA12 filament on desktop printers.
Combining toughness and flexibility, PA12 based filament is perfectly suited for applications in industries like mechanical engineering, aerospace, electronics or automotive.
The base polymer of this filament meets the requirements for food contact according to (EC) No 1935/2004, (EU) No 10/2011, (EC) No 2023/2006 and FDA. Therefore, PA12 is also highly appropriate for applications in food industry. Legally binding documents must be requested separately.
