  • Need the excellent durable properties of our Nylon 12 filament with enhanced rigidity and abrasion resistance? That’ll be our special Glass Reinforced Nylon 12 Plus, then.
  • Nylon 12 is renowned as one of the most versatile FDM 3D filaments available. Exuding near unbreakable durability, amazingly low friction coefficient and great chemical and thermo stability over the more common Nylon 6 or 6/6 grade. It’s even less hygroscopic compared with ‘6, making it arguably far more suited to 3D printing.
  • We’ve enhanced our Nylon 12 with micro glass beads, to add stiffness and excellent resistance to abrasion for those specialist projects. Ideal for any application where extreme durability and strength is required, but our flagship Carbonyte (Carbon Fibre Filled Nylon 12) is maybe a little overkill…
  • Using pure raw resins extruded to industry-leading tight tolerances ensures excellent layer to layer bonding, consistently. Perfect layer lines without hidden weak points gives you the peace of mind your parts will perform, every single time. We guarantee 100% printing reliability.
  • What’s more – if you ever have an issue with rigid.ink (unlikely) our efficient, friendly and knowledgeable technical customer support team will get you back up and running in no time. You’ll soon realise it’s not just our quality of filament that’s well renowned, but our service too.
Nylon 12 PLUS 1.75mm 3D Printer Filament

Description

Nylon 12 Plus 1.75mm (PA Filament)

Nylon PLUS is an enhanced, stronger and more abrasion resistant version of our regular Nylon 12 filament. 

All properties of Nylon PLUS are identical to Nylon, but the impressive abrasion resistant qualities come from the fact it's glass reinforced with beads inside the filament.

Please note: Printing with this filament over extended periods of time will wear your nozzle out. You may wish to purchase a nozzle made from a stronger metal, or be prepared to replace cheaper nozzles more frequently. 

Nylon 12 prints best at 255-­275C, if you can't get it hot enough just slow down the feed. Heated bed wants to be 100­-110C+, and Nylon typically won't adhere to glass so use some PVA glue stick for bed adhesion.

We do not hold Food Safety Certificates. Some of the raw materials used to produce our filaments are food safe accordingly to European regulations, but our filament in it's final form is not officially approved. Neither is the 3D printing process and all the components of 3D printers.
