Taulman Alloy 910 is in the nylon family, whose general properties are described on our website at this link: Nylon Information
Taulman Alloy 910 is a durable co-polymer nylon with a high degree of tensile strength. This material falls under the Polyamide (PA) category and demonstrates a minimal shrink nature on par with PLA and T-glase. Alloy 910 has a vast chemical resistance range and tolerates high-heat environments (up to 95°C). This filament can be dyed with acid-based dyes to achieve different color effects.
- Machining and sandblasting equipment
- Industrial applications
- Parts subject to stress or high impact
- Parts subject to repeated flexing (buckles, clasps)
While less likely to absorb moisture from the air than most nylon filaments, Alloy 910 should be stored in a sealed container with a fresh desiccant pack, or in a dry box. Remove the filament from your Gigabot when you are finished printing, and store it in a sealed, dry place.

Tips and Tricks
- Alloy 910 prints best when the ambient temperature is around 35°C. Avoid printing in cold or drafty environments. For best results, use an enclosure when printing with this filament.
- Try adding brims or rafts to your prints to help prevent warping and ensure a good first layer.
- If you are experiencing print difficulty with Alloy 910, it may have absorbed too much moisture from the air. Use this guide for drying your filament.
Because Alloy 910 prints at a higher temperature than most materials, it is better used for single extrusion applications. Its chemical resistance and self-lubricating properties make this filament difficult to use as a dual extrusion combination.
