AmideX™ Nylon 6 Copolymer

AmideX™ Nylon 6 Copolymer, Jet Black


AmideX™ Nylon 6 Copolymer

AmideX™ Nylon 6 copolymer has been formulated for superior printability and high-performance.  Nylon is the go-to engineering-grade of thermoplastic in the world based on its excellent mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance properties.   We manufacture AmideX™ Nylon filament at our factory in Grand Rapids MI using prime resin and state-of-the-art extrusion equipment.

Filament Diameter Specs

  • 1.75mm, +/- 0.05mm
  • 2.85mm, +/- 0.05mm

Recommended Print Conditions

  • Extruder: 255-275°C
  • Bed Temp: 60-70°C
  • Bed Prep: Polyimide (Kapton), PEI (ULTEM™) Sheet, Garolite, BuildTak
  • Chamber / Ambient Temp:  Not required, but using a 30-80°C printer chamber allows for superior layer bonding & mechanical properties.
  • Drying:  AmideX™ is made with nylon and as with all nylons, it absorbs more moisture fairly quickly which will result in poor printing.  While not in use, we recommend storing AmideX™ in our Mylar pouch HERE.  However, if drying is needed (you hear popping noises during printing - generally water boiling off from the resin), then we recommend drying in an oven at 70°C for 4 hours.  We use a dedicated oven for this purpose and do not recommend using the family oven!!  Try a toaster oven - your family will thank you for not turning dinner into a science experiment.
