Clariant polyamide 6 3D printer filament is made of a good flowing Polyamide 6 that results in high performance 3D printed parts. Clariant Hostanox® P-EPQ® and Nylostab® S-EED® are added via a Renol® masterbatch to improve resistance to thermo-oxidative degradation and minimize yellowing due to ultraviolet radiation.

  • Semi-crystalline thermoplastic
  • High impact strength
  • High stiffness
  • Outstanding wear resistance
  • Good coefficient of friction
  • Very good temperature resistance
  • Reduced thermo-oxidative degradation
  • Increased process stability at high processing temperatures
  • Improved long term heat and stability to ultraviolet and visible light

  • Mechanical and technical application parts that require toughness and durability
  • Models
  • Prototypes
*Subject to detailed product specifications.

  • Print Temperature = 250-280°C
  • Print Speed = 20-50 mm/s
  • Bed Adhesion = directly on glass, polyimide film or a PEI surface all with a thin coating of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) based glue
  • Bed Temperature = ideally heated up to 70°C
  • Fan Settings = medium to high

Note: parameters are dependent on printer used; Clariant tests were performed on an Ultimaker 3 extended and a 3ntr A4 V2 printer.
