We recycle fishing nets into engineering grade filament for 3D printing
Fishy Filaments™ aims to provide a win-win solution to fishing communities by taking end-of-life fishing gear and transforming it into commercially viable products that have the potential for a multitude of uses.
Our range of 3D printer filament is proving popular with many different people, from hobbyists to professional product designers and architects. In our gallery we are showcasing some of the most interesting designs that have been submitted. If you’d like to submit your own image or video, please send us a message or post to our Facebook page and we’ll be happy to share.
No. Our proprietary washing process removes both salt and marine algae from the nets before they are re-melted at over 200°C.
Yes. Mechanical tests carried out by an independent ISO accredited laboratory show that our filament is actually stronger than many unbranded first-use nylons currently on the market. That test data is available on the Technical Data Sheet along with recommended printing parameters.
Resellers and bulk buyers should contact us directly to discuss their needs.
At present we have no subscription service.
Nylon is a technically challenging material and not recommended for novice 3D printers but we’re happy to refund with a legitimate reason, of course.
No business is an island and here we recognise the people and organisations who have helped or continue to help along the way.
Please note: Initial stock is limited as we have only just begun production, but we will process all orders on a first come, first served basis. Dismiss
