Nylon Thermal 3D Printer Filament
EXTRUDER TEMP – 265 – 290 °C
BED TEMP – 60 – 70 °C
Nylon Thermal is a nylon based, thermally conductive filament with temperature stability above 150 °C. The filament is electrically non-insulating and has a thermal conductivity of 4 W/m-K in the print direction. This filament is ideal for mold tooling and any applications requiring high thermal conductivity, stiffness, and temperature stability. Nylon Thermal works well with most FDM printers that have a hot end capable of reaching 265 °C print temperatures.
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: 70 °C
- Glue stick with PEI or glass bed recommended
- Nylon is moisture sensitive; measures should be taken to keep the filament dry • Recommended drying temperature: 80 °C
- Generally, slower speeds, larger nozzles and layers, and a lot of retraction are recommended as a starting point
