Product Information

United States of America



iOn™ Nylon Alloy was created to bring practical functionality to the 3D Printing experience.

iOn™ is an engineering grade material that can be used in demanding applications where PLA and ABS fail due to shortcomings in mechancial, thermal, or chemical performance.  Select iOn™ Nylon Alloy when you want to create parts that focus on functionality, not just fit and finish.  Manufactured in the USA from virgin resins selected specifically for 3D Printing. We use state-of-the-art resins, colorants, manufacturing technologies to give you the best possible printing experience.  
 

Filament diameter specs:

  • 1.75mm, +/- 0.05mm
  • 2.85mm, +/- 0.05mm

Product Attributes:

  • True Alloy (not a blend), single Tg
  • Higher Thermal Resistance vs. ABS
  • Superior Impact Strength vs. ABS
  • Improved Solvent Resistance vs. ABS
  • Low-Gloss Surface
  • Excellent Fatigue Resistance
  • Lower Friction/Wear
  • Paintable Surface
  • Excellent Printability    

Chemical Resistance

iOn™ Nylon Alloy has improved chemical resistance vs. ABS.  This creates wider opportunities for prototyping demanding applications in a number of industries.

Suitable for use on practically ANY desktop 3D Printer that has a heated bed, including Airwolf, Ultimaker, Makerbot, Makergear, Prinrbot, Reprap, Mendel, Prusa, Up! Printers, Solidoodle as well as many more.  

Recommended Print Conditions:

  • Extruder: 240-260°C (ideal layer bonding at 250-260°C), or hotter if you have an all-metal hot-end.  However, do not exceed 300°C to avoid the onset of polymer degradation.  
  • Bed Temp: 100-110°C
  • Bed Prep: Ideally use Polyimide Tape & ABS/Acetone Slurry [together] or any surface you've been using with nylon-based filaments. Please note that acetone has difficulty dissolving iOn™ and standard ABS should be used to make the slurry.  
  • Drying:  iOn™ is an alloy of Nylon therefore absorbs more moisture that what you may be familiar with.  If the filament is stored in humid environments for an extended period of time - it will absorb moisture.  While not in use, we recommend storing iOn™ in the Mylar pouch that comes with the filament.  However, if drying is needed (you hear popping noises during printing - generally water boiling off from the resin), then we recommend drying in an oven at 175°F (F, not C) for 2-4 hours.  We use a dedicated oven for this purpose and do not recommend using the family oven!!  Try a toaster oven - your family will thank you for not turning dinner into a science experiment.
