Nylon and Fiber-Reinforced Nylon: The main advantage of this filament is that it is an incredibly strong, durable and versatile 3D printing material. Flexible when thin layer, but with very high inter-layer adhesion. Its low friction coefficient and high melting temperature makes it an excellent choice for printing functional and technical parts. Unlike ABS and PLA filaments is Nylonfar less brittle and therefore stronger.
It's moist absorption is 5 times lower than regular Nylon filament.
The 4 types:
- Nylon FX256 - regular high-end Nylon
- Nylon AF80 - Nylon reinforced with Aramide fibres (Kevlar)
- Nylon CF15 - Nylon reinforced with Carbon fibres
- PolyMide™ CoPA - Composite of Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6
