PolyMide™ CoPA 3D printing filament is based on a copolymer of Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6.
Polyamide 6 (PA6) is the most common extruded polyamide. It stands out in the industry for offering good cushioning and impact resistance properties, as well as good tenacity at low temperatures. It is ideal for example for bearings and gears since they would work silently.
This filament manufactured by Polymaker stands out for its excellent mechanical strength, hardness and thermal resistance of up to 180 °C. Therefore it is equated in thermal resistance to Nylon 180 °C and is placed at only 30 °C of resistance of NylonStrong that supports up to 210 °C of temperature without softening. Therefore, the PolyMide ™ CoPA filament becomes one of the most current materials on the market with greater resistance to temperature.
The main advantage of this mixture of Polyamides 6 and 6.6 is that it is designed to provide excellent dimensional stability during printing, with deformations close to zero, which implies that the warping effect is minimal. One of the main printing problems of all nylon filaments is precisely the high warping effect they present, hence the main development effort by Polymaker has been to launch a nylon oriented to the ease of printing.
Therefore, unlike other nylon filaments, PolyMide™ CoPa is easy to print, as it is compatible with most 3D FFF printers on the market without the need for a heated chamber or heated bed at high temperatures.
Like all nylon filaments, the PolyMide™ CoPA filament has a high sensitivity to moisture and should be kept in dry conditions (relative humidity of 20% or less) at all times. It is recommended that the material be used with PolyBox™.
