Nylon 3D Printing Filament materials


Nylon is a range of materials that are often used for industrial engineering applications. Its chemical nature allows it to mix with additives that change its behavior for certain applications. This is easily seen with the variety of nylon filaments that exist. Most nylon filaments share some common features. They are usually resistant to high temperatures and wear. They also have decent strength characteristics that let it excel in industry. Nylons vary in their flexibility and their strength depending on the resin and application. For parts that find themselves in cars, equipment, and industry, nylon gets the job done.

Nylon, especially the stiffer variety, is perfect when creating mounts for car parts. Its durability and tolerance to heat make it right at home inside an engine bay. In industry, nylon is good for gears that need to have high durability and long life cycles. Two surprising areas of application are in shoes and prosthetics. Both application areas require durability and some flexibility. More flexible nylons are the perfect choice for these applications.
