I build small combat robots for a hobby that have to withstand high impacts from spinning titanium blades and so I have been looking for a stronger material to use in my Prusa i3 printer. The people at 3D Printer World Aylesbury suggested and obtained for me some of your Alloy 910 nylon.
Here is a chassis I printed using glue stick on glass at 45 C and a head temperature of 250 C.
This material appears much stronger and more resilient than the ABS I have been using and as it has a little more give it should help to absorb some of the impacts.
The other advantage is that you can easily Dye the material either before or after printing using Rit Dye available from Ebay.
Here is the finished robot with the chassis wheels and lid dyed after printing.
