New Superior Nylon 680 is a high-end super strong medical grade nylon made with a FDA approved polymer. Nylon 680 is a nylon-based material for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF, FDM) 3D printing, is designed for use in a wide range of industries, including: medical, dental, food processing, and robotics. Nylon 680 is compatible with sterilization procedures, has FDA approval for indirect food contact, and is designed to have superior strength and physical attributes when compared to consumer-grade materials currently on the market; 680’s specifications are highly desired by industry and hobbyists. Nylon 680 is compatible with the following ethylene oxide and steam/boiling sterilization methods, used globally in scientific laboratories for conducting a wide range of research. Sterilization is important for researchers because it removes all fungus, bacteria, and other microbes which may be detrimental to the conditions of experimentation. Compatibility with sterilization processes is a rare material property in the 3D printing industry and is a unique attribute of Nylon 680. Lab Applications include: Scaffolds to grow cells, tissue engineering, prototyping medical devices and prosthetic, on-demand manufacturing of custom laboratory equipment Nylon 680 is approved for used in food storage and handling; it can be used to make dishware, utensils, and food decorations where the alcohol percentage is less than 8%. It is also dishwasher safe. Printed parts with Nylon 680 have been tested independently and are shown to be superior in strength when compared to other commercially available FFF/FDM 3D printing materials, and even to injection molded parts with PLA or ABS. In laboratory testing, 3D printed samples of nylon 680 reached an average tensile modulus stress of 28,6 psi (197 MPa).
