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.
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.
