PrimaSelect NylonPower Glass Fibre - 1.75mm - 500g - Natural

  • High chemical and thermal resistance
  • Excellent surface quality
  • Less warping than regular nylon
  • Easy to print
  • Creates very strong parts.
  • Less stiff than carbon infused nylon.

SELECT NylonPower Glass Fiber is the latest generation of high performance material for your 3D Printer. Our SELECT NylonPower is based on Nylon 12 and is reinforced with 16 % glass fibers. This makes for an extremely tough filament that is perfect for printed parts that can be used in the automotive industry, drones and RC parts. The glass fibers make it a bit softer and not as rigid as the version with carbon fibers.

SELECT NylonPower is a very useful material that has very unique properties. Mixed with small, chopped glass fiber strands, SELECT NylonPower filament offers incredible strength, structure, and great interlayer adhesion. The finished parts are very hard and rigid or flexible depending on the way you print it. It is very useful if you need an object with high strength to weight ratio. If you print glass fiber reinforced nylon with less infill and thinner walls you can expect a more flexible part. SELECT NylonPower requires a heated bed, set to 60-70˚C to get a good first layer adhesion.

Due to the abrasive nature of SELECT NylonPower we recommend that you use a hardened steel nozzle for this filament. Using a regular brass nozzle isn´t a problem but it will wear out the nozzle in a short time.

SELECT NylonPower sticks on glass coated with adhesive spray or glue stick.

  • Weight and spool
    Each spool come with 500 grams of high quality filament. NylonPower comes on a clear spool with a powerful desiccant to avoid moister.
     
  • Perfect diameter tolerance
    NylonPower is controlled during the whole manufacturing process. This ensures that you have a filament with a diameter tolerance of +/-0.05 mm.
     
  • Spooling
    We put great effort to make every spool perfect. This is to make you comfortable knowing that the filament won´t tangle on the spool.
     
  • Easy to print
    The fibers that are mixed with nylon makes this material very easy to print on most printers. We do, however, recommend a hardened nozzle.

 

Tips and trick:

Take care of your filament:

Thanks to the glass fiber in NylonPower it reduces the amount of water that can be absorbed.
What you need to keep in mind is that NylonPower is a Nylon filament from the beginning, so you need to make sure that the filament is completely dry before using it. NylonPower is shipped in a vacuum sealed bag with desiccant so the first print shouldn´t post any problem.
In case of exposure for humidity we strongly recommend that you dry your spool of NylonPower before you begin to print. To do this, just place the whole spool in the oven at 80°C for 5 to 7 hours. Then you have dried you spool and can start a new print again.

 

How to print:

NylonPower requires a temperature of 250°C - 265°C to extrude correctly. The filament can be printed on most printers, but we highly recommend that you use an all-metal setup for your extruder. NylonPower can be printed at lower temperatures but please keep in mind that you will not get the same strength in the finished parts.
This filament contains glass fibers, so it is very abrasive for your nozzle. We HIGHLY recommend that you use a hardened steel nozzle for this filament as a regular brass nozzle will wear out in a very short time.
Larger nozzles of 0.6 or 0.8 creates very strong prints and lower the risks of clogging up the nozzle. But it ok to use with a 0.4 mm nozzle as well.

NylonPower does not stick well to PEI, BuildTak or similar surfaces. Glass is the best surface to use coated with MagiGoo, PrintaFix, Glue stick or similar. When printing with NylonPower you should not use any cooling fans.
