FDM Nylon 6

FDM Thermoplastic

High Strength, Superior Toughness.

FDM Nylon 6 possesses the best combination of tensile strength and toughness among FDM materials. It fills the niche between the flexibility of FDM Nylon 12 and the rigidity of carbon-filled FDM Nylon 12CF.

Tuned for FDM Performance.

3D print with one of the most widely used commercial nylons. FDM Nylon 6 delivers the right balance of performance in an FDM filament to successfully print nylon 6 prototypes and parts.
