What is the most common polymer for SLS 3D printing?

The most common polymer used in SLS 3D printing is Nylon, known for its well-balanced material properties, making it an excellent choice for a variety of applications.

Nylon Mechanical Properties:

● High tensile strength: It can withstand significant stretching force without breaking.

● Durability: Nylon parts are known for their long-lasting nature.

● Toughness: It can absorb energy and deform without fracturing.

● Flexibility: When printed thin, nylon can be quite flexible, allowing for movement without breaking.

● Abrasion resistance: It resists wear from friction, making it suitable for parts that experience a lot of contact or movement.

● Impact resistance: Nylon can withstand sudden forces or shocks without damage.

● Low friction coefficient: This makes nylon parts move smoothly against each other, ideal for gears or hinges.

● Heat resistance: It can maintain its properties at higher temperatures.

● Chemical resistance: It is resistant to many chemicals, which makes it suitable for various industrial applications.
