Black Nylon 180 3D printer filament is a durable high performance polyamide 12 (PA12) with high tensile strength. This type of polyamide is widely used in automotive, machinery and industry as it combines mechanical strength, flexibility and chemical resistance (oils, greases, gasoline ..) and superior thermal. Its elongation is between 100 and 350% which makes it one of the filaments with greater resistance to fatigue. On the other hand it presents a good resistance to insertions under pressure and it's a very lightweight plastic. The main applications are usually in metal replacement applications, such as consoles, gears, pulleys, sprockets and industrial damping machinery.
The most outstanding feature of the Nylon 180 3D print filament is that it withstands up to 180 °C temperature without softening which is a great advantage over the other filaments used in 3D printing.
Nylon 180 (PA12) is a superior performance filament only recommended for users with extensive experience in 3D printing because it is a complicated filament to print due to the high warping effect it presents, hence it is only possible to print using A glue mixture and water (see tab of usage tips) at the base of the printer on the glass.
The finish of this filament is quite smooth which gives it low friction properties (great slippage).
Each Nylon 180 (1.75mm or 3mm) filament spool/coil contains 750 grams of filament and although this is one of the nylon filaments with lower moisture absorption it is advisable in case you have a filament dryer dry it for 2-3 hours at ~ 80 ° C.
