Nylon is a very strong, weather-proof material that is very appropriate to use for printed objects that must endure a lot of stress. Prints made of nylon will also be semi-flexible and resistant to extreme temperatures. They will also have a low coefficient of friction and display a beautiful sheen.

All the filaments we sell are nicely boxed with usage and material properties printed directly on the inside cover, including the recommended print and heated bed temperature ranges. In addition, each spool is vacuum sealed with a moisture-reducing silicate bag to ensure filament longevity.
Filament quality and storage is one of the most important ingredient for beautiful prints. Many people focus strictly on the immediate appearance of a product and forget that a well-preserved spool is just as important. Nylon filament has strong moisture-absorbing characteristics and should always be stored in a cool, dry environment.
