PolyMide™ is a family of Nylon/polyamide based filaments. Produced with Polymaker’s Warp-Free™ technology, PolyMide™ filaments deliver engineering properties intrinsic to Nylon and ease of printing.
PolyMide™ PA6-GF is a glass fiber reinforced PA6 (Nylon 6) filament. The material exhibits excellent thermal and mechanical properties without sacrificing the layer adhesion.
We highly recommend to use a wear resistant nozzle, to print with the PolyBox™ and to keep it at dry conditions (relative humidity of 15% or less) at all times to maintain the best printing results.
Excellent Stiffness & Toughness - Featuring a tensile modulus of 4.4 GPA on the XY axis and 3.3 GPA on the Z axis, PolyMide™ PA6-GF is well suited for high performance industrial and engineering applications. PolyMide™ PA6-GF combines excellent stiffness and toughness.
Excellent Heat Resistance - Featuring a heat deflection temperature of up to 191°C, PolyMide™ PA6-GF can be used to print parts working in a wide temperature range and has been utilized to create custom lab equipment working at temperatures as low as -190°C.
Outstanding Layer Adhesion - All other brands of fiber reinforced material show a decrease in z-axis layer adhesion when compared with their non-fiber reinforced Nylons, producing a part that is only stronger on the X-Y axis but detrimental to the Z axis. Polymakers new technology in PolyMide™ PA6-GF not only solves this problem but actually increases Z axis tensile strength creating more isotropic parts that are strong in every direction.
Wear Resistant and strong - Parts printed in PolyMide™ PA6-GF display excellent strength and wear resistant properties.
Improved Printability – Unlike many other Nylon filaments, PolyMide™ PA6-GF is extremely easy to work with, exhibiting excellent dimensional stability. It is compatible with most filament-based 3D printers with no heated bed or chamber required!
Uncompromised Quality - Polymakers leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing ensure reliable printing and consistency across spools and batches.
