|Very strong||Good chemical resistance||Easy to dye|
Z-NYLON (PA12) is a versatile and strong 3D printing filament that can withstand high temperatures and various chemicals. It can be finished with tools intended for working metals. Z-NYLON is hard to break and it is easy to paint because it can be dyed with common acid-based clothing dyes. The filament absorbs moisture quickly and should be stored in a waterproof bag with a moisture absorber. Like all nylon-based materials, Z-NYLON has a relatively high shrinkage, so it is not recommended when 3D printing large geometric shapes. To reduce shrinkage, it is recommended to work with HEPA Cover attached to the M Series Plus 3D printers.
