Nylon 12 low moisture absorption 3D printer filament Canada


Nylon 12 Filament - Natural - 2.85mm
Free Gift


NYLON 12 is a high performance polyamide filament widely used in the automotive, machinery and engineering industries.

For 3D printing, one of the most important properties (other than its strength) for choosing NYLON 12 over the more common NYLON 6 and other nylons, is the fact the NYLON 12 has a very low moisture absorption which is extremely important both before and after printing. In filament form, this means less issues with printing, less drying and higher quality prints. In printed object form, this means the mechanical properties of the printed part will remain unaffected even after prolonged usage and exposure to the air.

Main features of NYON 12:

  • Extremely tough with superior tensile strength, elongation at break & impact strength.
  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Superior chemical resistance
  • Superior UV resistance
  • High fatigue endurance
  • Heat resistance to over 130°C
 3d filament net weight NET WEIGHT: 0.75 KG (1.65 LB)

3d printing temperature guideline Printing


255°C - 275°C
  • Despite its low moisture absorption, the nylon should still be dried before use for best results. (~80°C for 2-3 hours, if drying with the spool, dry at 60°C for about 4-6 hours)
  • Heated bed required: 100°C - 110°C or higher
  • Adheres well to masonite, poplar wood or blue painters tape.
  • Store in cool and dry place (15-25˚C) and away from UV light to enhances the shelf life significantly.
