reduced nylon strength when wet

Recommended Posts

Posted · reduced nylon strength when wet

so is there a way to reduce the amount nylon (taulman bridge specifically) weakens when it gets wet? i've been printing rc car parts with itii and they get weak once they get wet. is there maybe a better material to print with that is similar in strength to nylon?

Lol I run my rc car on a track not in the lake, that is called and RC boat! Seriously, I strongly suspect that if you coated the parts with XTC-3D that would seal the nylon and prevent the contamination by water.

I have used Taulman Bridge even in very thin parts and have not find that problem. Bridge is not exaactly nylon, so perhaps it behaves a little different.

Nylon is used for fishing lines (they are 100% pure nylon) and these do no get weaker when wet. Any material that gets weaker when wet would be an awful material for fishing!

What nylon it's? If it gets weak with water it could be an awesome support material :D
