XSTRAND™ Glass Fiber Reinforced Nylon | 2.85mm | Owens Corning Filament

Product SKU: GF-30-PA6

Available Stock:
This is an abrasive filament that will wear down brass nozzles. We recommend upgrading to a steel or ruby nozzle.


XSTRAND™ Glass Fiber Reinforced Nylon

GF30-PA6 was developed to meet the demands of the real world. GF30-PA6 is a reinforced PA6 nylon filament with 30% glass fiber that is up to 250% stronger than carbon fiber reinforced ABS.

Recommended printing parameters
  • Nozzle temperature: 220-280°C
  • Bed temperature: 80-110°C
  • Printing speed: 30-100mm/s
  • Nozzle diameter: > 0.4mm
Abrasive Filament:
  • Compatible with most of open Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printers available on the market
  • When melted, XSTRAND™ filament can be abrasive due to its glass reinforcement.
  • Printing with XSTRAND™ may reduce brass nozzles and extruder driving wheels lifetime. For a better experience, using hardened steel nozzles and extruder driving wheels is advised.
  • Materials designed for functional prototyping and industrial applications
  • Very stiff and strong materials (up to +250% compare to ABS)
  • Large operational temperature range -20°C to 120°C
  • Good chemical and UV resistance
  • Excellent layer adhesion and reduced warping effect compare to neat materials

Developed by Owens Corning, a world leader in composite solutions, XSTRAND™ filaments for 3D printing are reinforced materials designed to be compatible with any standard Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printer.

With excellent thermal and mechanical properties and compatible with the Ultimaker S5, XSTRAND™ materials are ideal for industrial applications. They can help customers manufacture items that suit specific applications, such as tooling, appliances, and electronics.

The material’s glass-fiber reinforcement ensures strong prints, with good chemical and UV resistance, able to withstand a large operating temperature range.

To help customers get the best out of the XSTRAND™ range, Owens Corning collaborated with the engineers at Ultimaker to create optimized material profiles that are now available in Ultimaker Cura. These profiles have been customized specifically for the XSTRAND™ range so that users can simply select the material they’re printing with, without having to configure multiple settings manually.

This takes the hassle out of finding the right setting for their filament, allowing Owens Corning customers to save time and print what they want right from the start.
