General description

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. 

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

Preparation Note

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.
