PolyMide™ CoPA is based on a copolymer of Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6. The filament combines excellent strength, toughness, and heat resistance of up to 180˚C.
We recommend that the material be used with PolyBox™ (Press here to purchase) to keep it at dry conditions (relative humidity of 20% or less) at all times to make sure a best printing result.
Warp Free: PolyMide™ CoPA is engineered to give excellent dimensional stability during printing, with near-zero warping.
Easy Printing: Unlike other Nylon filaments, PolyMide™ CoPA is extremely easy to work with. It is compatible with most filament-based 3D printers with no heated chamber/bed required!
Strong & Tough: The outstanding mechanical strength and toughness makes PolyMide™ CoPA the best choice of engineering material for your creative ideas!
Heat Resistant: With a high softening temperature of ~180 °C, PolyMide™ CoPA is one of the most heat resistant 3D printing materials in the market.
Uncompromised Quality: Polymaker's eight-step quality control process and rigorous in-house testing ensure reliable printing and consistency across spools and batches.

All Polymaker products are formulated by Polymakers experienced R&D team to provide new optimized and innovative material solutions for the industry. Whether it be improving printing reliability & experience (Warp-Free™ & Jam-Free™) to maximising material performance and functionality (Optimized & Nano reinforcement). Polymakers patented technologies and expansive portfolio have continued to provide empowering solutions to customers internationally, from Automotive manufacturers and Construction companies right down to the entrepreneur and household maker.
Nylon is one of the most popular engineering materials in the manufacturing world, its excellent mechanical and thermal properties has helped Nylon infiltrate a variety of industries. In the additive manufacturing world, Nylon materials haven’t been as popular as they have a tendency to warp when 3D Printed. Warping is a common issue when printing higher temperature filaments (ABS, PC) without the right temperature requirements however unlike ABS and PC, the reason Nylon warps is different and thus the warping is not easily controlled or prevented with printer settings / heated environments.
To combat this effect Polymaker have developed Warp-Free technology. The secret behind this technology is the fine controlling of the materials microstructure and the crystallization behaviour of the polymer chains. This effect results in all the internal stress that’s caused when printing to be fully released before solidification. This allows users to print on a cold bed; creating a printed part that’s dimentionally accurate with zero warpage.
Industry Leading Quality Control
PolyMide™ CoPA like all other Polymaker materials is manufactured using state-of-the-art polymer processing technologies and equipment. Polymakers rigorous eight-step quality control process ensures industrial standards of reliability for a consistent customer experience.
Tolerance: Polymakers custom developed extrusion, control and monitoring solutions ensure filament tolerance (typical tolerance ± 0.02mm) and roundness meet Polymakers strict quality standards.
Reliable Mechanical, Colouring & Printing Properties: Every batch of filament products are tested to ensure all quality specs (melt flow, softening point, mechanical, diameter, round-ness) are met.
Drying & Vacuum Sealing: Before packaging, all Polymaker filaments are dried to a moisture level of < 0.1% to ensure the best printing quality and are vacuum sealed to protect the filament from moisture. All vacuum packaged products are left for 24 hours before boxing to ensure they are leak-free.

Transparent Spool: PolyMide™ CoPA is carefully wound on Polymakers 1kg transparent spools. With the transparent spool, it is easy to see exactly how much filament is left for your next printing project.
Resealable Aluminium Foil Bag: PolyMide™ CoPA is packaged in an aluminium foil resealable bag to ensure your filament is moisture free. Like all other Nylon based filaments, PolyMide™ CoPA is hygroscopic so we recommend using this bag for filament storage.
PolyMide™ CoPA is plasticizer free and are produced with one of the most eco-responsible manufacturing processes in the industry.
