Our Onyx material is carbon fibre blended nylon and is a high strength thermoplastic with excellent heat resistance, surface finish and chemical resistance.
Onyx serves as a thermoplastic matrix for our composite parts and can be printed alone or reinforced with a continuous fibre. From tools, prototypes and fixtures to end parts, Onyx offers the perfect finish for your requirements.
The strength of nylon/PA6, the stiffness of fibre-reinforced plastic and a heat distortion temperature of 145°C make Onyx the ideal 3D printing material for all industrial applications.
The added micro-carbon fibre also provides stable components with a much higher surface stability. You can use the components manufactured by us directly without chemical or mechanical finishing. Due to its black, matt colour, Onyx is perfectly suited for ready-to-install components.
Can it be a little hotter?
Onyx FR is the flame retardant version of the versatile Onyx material. According to UL94 V-0 it has a thickness of 3 mm. With this state-of-the-art material, we manufacture parts for you where flammability plays an important role, making Onyx FR ideal for strong, lightweight and flame retardant components. It has been specially developed for industries such as aerospace, automotive and defence.
The new Nylon White is a technical thermoplastic that is even stronger, stiffer and more reliable than the old nylon material, which has a smooth, non-abrasive surface and can be reinforced with any continuous fibre.
