NylonK Kevlar Fiber Filament - 1.75mm (0.5kg)

NylonK is a kevlar fiber reinforced nylon 3D printing filament which boasts excellent abrasion resistance and durability, making it ideal for applications that require more stiffness than unfilled nylons and improved durability under frictional forces. For makers looking to create with engineering grade materials or those in need of ultra high-performance nylon - this filament delivers.

Engineering grade material

Nylon is an incredible 3D printing material thanks to its inter-layer adhesion and low friction. Nylon is a rigid filament, but under load does flex slightly to stop the part from shattering like weaker materials. These properties make nylon the right choice for functional parts that go from the printer direct to application. MatterHackers offers many different nylons for 3D printing from PRO Series to NylonX and NylonG all the way to the new NylonK. No matter what you are making with nylon - we've got you covered.

Which nylon is right for me?

Filament Benefit Optimal Use
PRO Series Nylon Strong, low friction General Purpose 3D Printing
NylonG Impact Resistance Parts subjected to repeated shock 
NylonK Abrasion Resistance Parts subject to constant friction
NylonX Tensile Strength Parts needing stiffness and strength

Printing Recommendations

Like all nylons, NylonK must be kept dry! If it does not remain packaged with desiccant, it will readily absorb moisture from the air; this will lead to degraded print quality and wasted filament. You can dry it out by baking it in an oven at 180°F for 4-6 hours. We also carry the PrintDry Filament Drying System for more precise dehydration for all filament types.
