Nylon AF80 Aramid


Nylon FX256 filament reinforced with aramid fibre

The fibre brings tribological properties and wear resistance.
High temperature, wear and tensile resistant.
These features are maintained in wide temperature range.


  • Functional properties achieved for 3D printed object
    - change of properties versus Nylon FX256

  • Printing properties
    - strong interlayer adhesion, higher process stability, smooth surface

  • Mechanical properties
    - higher tensile strength, tribological properties, hardness

  • Heat resistance
    - close to Nylon FX256, improved HDT

  • Low density

  • Impact resistance
    - lower elasticity because of fibre

  • Environmentally friendly material
    - BPA free, styrene free

Printing information

  • Printing temperature: 235–260 °C

  • Bed temperature: 80–105 °C.

Due to crystallization, warping may occur during cooling.
Use a glue stick or Magigoo for ideal bed adhesion.
