Nylon AF80 Aramid is soon here! February 20 2020

Fillamentum Industrial introduces one of the strongest materials on the market. Aramid fiber-reinforced Nylon, known as Nylon AF80 Aramid. This filament is an excellent choice for heavy-duty applications that also need to remain flexible at the same time.



Aramid is also known as Kevlar. Kevlar is a synthetic aramid polyamide. Its molecular structure makes it able to withstand extreme heat. Nylon reinforced with aramid fibers is a filament with excellent mechanical and printing properties. High-temperature, wear, and tensile resistance are the main features, while the excellent hardness is also one of the most notable features of this unique industrial filament.



Furthermore, Nylon AF80 Aramid also provides tribological properties. All of these make it suitable for the fabrication of products like an unwinding wheel, bearings, or cogwheels. This durable material resists a wide range of chemicals, including car fluids. 



Thanks to the excellent layer adhesion, the smooth surface of the printed product can seem like produced by an injection molding machine. Nylon AF80 Aramid is an effective way to cut down on your industrial manufacturing costs with high-quality, innovative material. The recommended printing temperature is in the range of 235 - 260 °C, and the heated bed temperature is in the range of 80 - 105 °C. The ease of printing is maintained thanks to a very low shrinkage and great bed adhesion. The best results were achieved with a glass bed and PVA glue. Also, Magigoo and Magigoo PA work fine.

Industrial filament PC/ABS is here! January 24 2020

PC/ABS is the third filament in a row that has been released by Fillamentum Industrial so far this year. Polycarbonate/acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene or in short PC/ABS is suitable for all commercial FFF/FDM printers that use 1,75 mm filament diameter.



Like most of its predecessors, PC/ABS is suitable for prototyping. The excellent properties of this material make it great for application in the automotive industry. It's durable with excellent mechanical properties and impact resistance, especially at low temperatures. PC/ABS is also resistant to high temperatures and can be used as a part of electrically stressed parts of consumer or office electronics. It's perfect for printing parts of printers, copiers, game consoles, or keyboards.

Another use-case for this material are airbags or the interior parts of car bodies as it resists mechanical and thermal strain. It's a filament that is light but strong at the same time and shows minimal signs of wear even after numerous uses. The hardness of PC/ABS is comparable to Vinyl 303, Nylon CF15 Carbon, or CPE CF112 Carbon.

A notable aspect of PC/ABS shows is it's excellent printing properties. We strongly recommend keeping the printing temperature at 260–280 °C, bed temperature in a rage of 90–105 °C, and the printing speed at 30–55 mm/s. We do not recommend fast cooling, as this could lead to warping and shrinking. This also means that less cooling helps to make printed parts stronger as the layers have enough time to bond well.

First printable polypropylene by Fillamentum October 03 2019

Within few weeks Fillamentum Industrial will release new material under the name PP 2320. This polypropylene, which, thanks to its unique properties, will easily become an integral part of your production. It took nearly a year of development and technological testing to bring this material to perfection.

 

3D printing is no longer a privilege of hobby users and designers. Fillamentum Industrial aims at the field of industrial applications. Our Industrial materials will increase production efficiency, saving your time and costs. The clear evidence is this new polypropylene, which Fillamentum presented at TCT Show in Birmingham.

PP 2320 has excellent electrical insulation properties and will find its application as an alternative to PVC in the insulation of electrical cables. Like Vinyl 303, which was launched this March, it is not absorbent, so it's ideal as part of a pipeline, in making of tanks and sinks. The high temperature and chemical resistance make PP 2320 a structural component for chemical tools that also require high strength. PP 2320 by Fillamentum Industrial achieves high tensile strength over competing polypropylene filaments with greater elongation.

Polypropylene of Fillamentum Industrial has countless applications, but another unforgettable advantage is the ease of printing. PP 2320 is printed in the temperature range 225-245° C. For maximum strength we recommend printing at the upper limit of the printing temperatures (240–245 °C). Large objects should be printed in a heated chamber.



We offer a unique option for the pre-order of this material.
