Prima SELECT NylonPower PA 6/66 – 3D printer filament
NylonPower PA 6/66 by PrimaCreator is a special co-polymer blend 3D printer Polyamide filament that takes full advantage of the strengths of both PA 6 and PA66. The combination of these two types of polyamides makes our Nylon very easy to 3D print. Normally Nylon (PA) is very hard to 3D print with. With regular nylon 3D printer filaments, you’ll have a hard time to make it stick to the build plate. With NylonPower you can use lower 3D printing temperatures than you normally would with Nylon. Use this material in most common FFF/FDM 3D printers.
Main material properties of NylonPower PA6/66:
- Perfect blend of PA6 and PA66
- High chemical and thermal resistance
- Less warping than regular Nylon makes it easy to 3D print
- Excellent layer adhesion creates strong 3D printed parts
How to 3D print Nylon filament best
When 3D printing with Nylon you should do so on a heated build plate. For best adhesion we recommend that you use Magigoo PA. The temperature should be set to 60-80°C.
Nylon PA6/66 a powerful 3D printing filament
Nylon has strong mechanical strength and deforms less. It´s hard to snap of or break. Furthermore, Nylon is also one of the best materials when it comes to impact resistance.
Special material properties of nylon & tips for process it
Nylon is very hydroscopic. This means that it absorbs liquids, this could be a benefit if you want to dye your filament. It also means that it is important to dry your Nylon before use. You can set the oven at 70-80°C and leave it there for 4-8 hours. The longer you leave it, the dryer it will be. That will also reflect on the finished print result, both visual and performance wise.
