Taulman3D Nylon 618 filament

  • $ 1975

Nylon 618 was the first nylon specifically formulated and processed for 3D Printing. Technically, nylon 618 is an extremely high quality variety of nylon 6,6. Only one chemical company manufactures this specific variation of nylon. Both the chemical composition and post processing developed by taulman3D work together to lower the print temperature of high quality nylon as well as reduce the non-uniformity that nylons exhibit in the melted state. 618 is a pure white polymer and fully capable of absorbing acid based dyes. 618 printed with 100% fill rivals it's injection molded equivalents in strength. All of the features of nylon that we come to depend on are at the maximum in 618. Slippery surfaces, pliability, strength, non-scrape, chemical resistance and high thermal durability.
