iOn™ Nylon/ABS Alloy 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/ABS 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.
True Alloy (not a blend); single Tg
Higher Thermal Resistance vs. ABS
Superior Impact Strength vs. ABS
Improved Solvent Resistance vs. ABS
Excellent Fatigue Resistance
Chemical Resistance: iOn Nylon/ABS Alloy has improved chemical resistance vs. ABS. This creates wider opportunities for prototyping demanding applications in a number of industries.
Recommended Print Conditions:
Suitable for use on practically ANY desktop 3D Printer; including Makerbot Replicator; Makergear; Ultimaker; Prinrbot; Reprap; Mendel; Prusa; Up! Printers; Solidoodle as well as any printer that has a heated bed.
Extruder: 245 - 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: 105 -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 and ABS and therefore absorbs more moisture than ABS would normally alone. 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.
