Introducing Kodak Nylon 6 Filament
Kodak Nylon 6 is one of the toughest engineering plastics available. Build fixtures, guides, jigs, guards and other manufacturing aids that require good mechanical and tensile strength. Nylon 6 offers excellent resistance to heat, oils, solvents, and chemicals. Our Neon variety transmits ultraviolet/black light, so you can make objects that glow in the dark.
NOTE: Do not use in direct contact with food.
Do not leave exposed to air, since it readily absorbs humidity, which can greatly affect your print. Drying this hygroscopic material before printing is highly recommended. The KODAK 3D Printing Filament airtight case (included with the Kodak Portrait 3D printer) will improve your printing experience by preventing exposure to dust and absorption of moisture during extrusion.
Important Note: Nylon is a challenging material to print. You may need to get a sheet of tufnol or garolite to print on to avoid warping.
