Fillamentum Nylon AF80 Aramid is a material filled with aramid fibres for the FDM 3D printing technology. The reinforcement brings tribological properties and wear resistance to the material. It can withstand higher static pressure load than unfilled Nylon FX256.  It has also higher hardness, heat distortion temperature and chemical resistant.

These great properties are preserved even at low temperatures. The material can be with the advantage used for printing parts that are under constant stress, for example, bearings, cogwheels, reinforcement parts etc.

Aramid is a synthetic man-made material and was first commercialised in the 1960's.  DupPont Chemical then engineered Aramid to make a compound named Kevlar.

Aramid fibers have been used extensively in body armour, vehicle armour, military helmets, protective gloves, and fireproof suits for fire fighters and now Fillamentum have integrated those fibers into a 3D printing filament Nylon Aramid AF80.

Institute of Geology CAS case study

Features:

  • Good interlayer adhesion
  • Smooth surface
  • Tribological properties (wear, friction and lubrication).  Good for mechanical and bearing use.
  • Higher tensile strength
  • Heat resistance
  • Low density
  • Impact resistance
  • Environmentally friendly

It is recommended that you try to print in an enclosed chamber and try not to cool down the printed objects too quickly.

Fillamentum recommend Magigoo or a PVA glue for your 3D printer platform  As it is similar to printing with regular ABS.  Though if you are used to working with nylons you may already have worked out what is best for you. You could also try using DimaFix.
