Filkemp Nylon, 2.85mm, Clear

3D Print Master Pro Nylon by Filkemp 2.85mm, Clear, 1kg


3D Print Master Pro Nylon by Filkemp is a high-performance, industrial-grade nylon that prints at a low temperature of 230 °C. It is fast cooling and comes pre-lubricated with Lubricity™ Technology to aid extrusion and reduce nozzle wear.


Because Filkemp Nylon prints at 230 °C, it is compatible with a wider range of desktop and large-format 3D printers than regular nylon.


Thanks to its special chemical composition, this particular nylon can be printed at a low temp without sacrificing final part quality. It flows smoothly from the nozzle with brilliant dimensional stability and reduced warping.


Filkemp Nylon is also odour-free. It’s the perfect material for industrial prototyping, modelling, and small series production


Like all nylons, it exhibits greater abrasion resistance than most other materials, and especially thermoplastics, including ABS and PLA. Nylon is, in fact, one of the most durable 3D printing filaments on the market. It’s used for high-wear and mechanical applications, as well as for tooling and to create joints and snap-fits.


This product is available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm sizes and is compatible with most 3D printers that are capable of an extrusion temperature up to 230 °C. The colours available are red, grey, black and clear.


We are an authorised Filkemp reseller in the United Kingdom. If you have any questions about Nylon, please feel free to contact us.

    Filkemp’s history dates back to the 70s, where it was a department within a subsidiary of Hoechst AG, a then leading chemicals and life sciences company. The monofilaments department was spun off from Hoechst AG in 1998 ahead of their merger with France's Rhône-Poulenc S.A in 1999. Hoechst AG became Aventis, and the monofilaments arm which was spun off became Filkemp.

    Now, Filkemp holds a leading global position as a polymer and copolymer manufacturer, with production in Portugal and a presence in over 40 countries. They are renowned as one of the top innovators in their industry.

    Part of Filkemp’s product range includes a range of 3D printing filaments, which are branded under the 3D Print Master Pro name. These filaments are engineered for home, professional, and industrial use, and include PLA-N, an engineered PLA which is similar in toughness to ABS, PET-G, which can replace ABS, and Nylon, which is widely used in industry for tooling, modelling and parts prototyping.

    All these filaments are available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameters, which means they are standardised for desktop and large-format 3D printers.

    Filkemp filaments are world-renowned for unfaltering quality and performance. You can always expect the very best 3D printing experience with them, no matter the application or use case you have in mind.
