In general parts made of Versatile Plastic (Also known as Strong and Flexible, Nylon 12 Plastic, PA12, Polyamide, PA 2200) show high mechanical strength and elasticity under steady stress in a temperature range from - 40°C till + 80°C. Short time loading of parts made of PA 12 without stress is possible up to 160°C.

Multi Jet Fusion Plastic PA12 has nearly the same thermal properties as Versatile Plastic but the print process improves resilience to abuse and is UV stable.
