Nylon Flame-Retardant 3D Printer Filament is a ceramic sphere reinforced, halogen free flame-retardant filament (V-0 at thicknesses greater than 0.4 mm). Designed for industrial applications, Nylon Flame is made using a nylon 6 based material, which is easy to print with low warping and increased layer adhesion. Nylon Flame is also electrically insulating. Abrasion resistant nozzles are recommended for use with this material, and other print recommendations for nylons will apply here as well.
Nylon materials inherently take up moisture from the surrounding atmosphere due to the nature of their chemistry. When most polymers are extruded with high moisture content, the chains in the polymer will break. When this happens, you may notice a change in viscosity and melt strength of the melted polymer. An obvious sign of your nylon being too wet is popping noises as the material is extruded, the moisture in the material vaporizing. All nylon materials are shipped in vacuum-sealed bags to prevent moisture uptake during shipping and storage.
Nylon Thermal Filament is proudly made in the USA to the tightest diameter tolerance on the market. Filamatrix filaments are designed and developed by engineers with 50+ years of experience in plastic extrusion. All Filamatrix products are repeatedly tested for color uniformity and physical properties through an in-house print lab, consisting of numerous printer manufacturers. Physical properties of printed test bars are checked in an outside, certified lab.
Recommended nozzle temperature: 265-290 °C
Recommended bed temperature: 50 °C
3D lac or similar, Magigoo PA or Buildtak or similar surfaces are recommended to improve 1st layer
Nylon is moisture sensitive; measures should be taken to keep the filament dry • Recommended drying temperature: 70 °C
Generally, slower speeds, larger nozzles and layers are recommended as a starting point
