Nylon X is an amazing, reinforced nylon filament. By adding micro-carbon fibers to nylon, you get a tough filament capable of printing parts with stiffness, impact resistance, and high tensile strength. NylonX is an engineering grade filament, ready for home 3D printing, which gives you the durability of Nylon combined with the stiffness of carbon fiber.
NylonX is an engineering grade nylon filament which is blended with chopped carbon fibers (approximately 20% by weight), creating a high-strength filament capable of printing tough, functional parts.
NylonX is the perfect blend of strength and durability; If you are already printing with nylon it's time to upgrade. Nylon X printed components create a fantastic matte finish with no post processing at all. The high precision of this filament makes it a potential replacement for aluminum using 3D printing instead of CNC milling. Nylon X is the simple answer for anyone in need of robust, high quality prints. Time to make the upgrade.
The best part of NylonX is that the carbon fiber adds stability and rigidity, so parts are much less likely to warp than with standard nylon. This means that printing with NylonX is actually easier than printing with traditional Nylon while providing parts that are durable, like nylon, but stiff from the carbon fiber. Additionally, less warping means you can enjoy more accurate printed parts with fewer failed prints.
Nylon X is the perfect material for makers ready to transition into something outside the commonly used PLA and ABS. Don't let nylon intimidate you! This material is designed to provide strength, durability, and ease for hobbyists and engineers alike. If you are already printing with nylon, give NylonX a try - it will soon be your new favorite.

With a unique matte black finish, NylonX eliminates post-print processing. Finished prints can immediately be moved to production with no sanding, polishing, scraping, or pesky acetone vapor baths. Save time (and patience) with the print-and-go ease of NylonX.
Print temperature: 250-265°C
Print speed: 25mm/s - 35mm/s
Bed temperature: 60-65°C with PVA glue stick
Nozzle: Steel or other hardened nozzle type
Important: Like all nylons, NylonX must be kept dry. It will readily absorb moisture from the air. You can dry it out by baking it in an oven at 180°F for 4-6 hours. For more information about printing with NylonX, check out these Tips and Tricks.
