Nylon Kevlar 3D Printer Filament | EXTRUDER TEMP – 255 ± 15 °C | BED TEMP – 70 ± 15 °C
Nylon Kevlar is a first-of-its-kind product that infuses aramid fibers into the filament. With this unique formulation, users can expect all the great attributes associated with nylon; toughness, durability, tensile strength, and heat resistance.This combines the ease of printing of Filamatrix’s Phoenix filament with the added benefit of further increased part wear. These properties make Nylon Kevlar filament ideal for many objects where you would typically consider using a nylon, such as Phoenix, but takes it a considerable step further for repeat use parts like hinges and gears to make for durable, long lasting parts.
Nylon materials inherently take up moisture from the surrounding atmosphere due to the nature of their chemistry. When most polymers are extruded with a 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 Kevlar 3D Printer 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 tests bars are checked in an outside, certified lab. Nylon Kevlar is available in Charcoal color and standard filament sizes of 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm.
