                        Production Information
                Fine Nylon and Fine Nylon MG (Medical Grade)

Fine Nylon and Fine Nylon MG (Medical Grade) is a fine grade nylon powder
recommended for use in Selective Laser Sintering applications where
durable parts, with good thermal stability and chemical resistance are
required. Parts benefit from enchanced feature details, strength of small
features and finer textured surface finishes.

Snap features and living hinges are possible with this material due to
its higher tensile elongation properties.

In addition, Fine Nylon MG has been certified USP Level VI for limited
in-vivo exposure. Fine Nylon MG can also be steam sterilized up to five
cycles via autoclave.

I will send you the Product Information sheet with the Thermal and
Mechanical properties and a small sample part with living hinges
