3D Filament

Worth knowing

FIBREX™ NYLON GF30 filament is a fiber-reinforced PA6 nylon filament with 30% glass fibers by weight. As a result, this material gains high strength and stiffness with low brittleness. In addition to its very good mechanical properties, high temperature resistance, good surface quality and high chemical and thermal resistance, this material is a promising material for industrial applications and is used, for example, in automotive engineering for the production of engine compartment components.

However, with regard to additive processing of this filament, the abrasive effect on the nozzle must be taken into account. Nevertheless, there is good printability, since the fiber content reduces the shrinkage that occurs and thus minimizes warping.

Fields of application:
Prototype construction, automotive industry, bicycle technology, medical technology e.g. prostheses and components for wheelchairs.

Advantages

  • Increased stiffness and strength
  • Heat resistance of at least 170°C (depending on mechanical load)
  • for extremely light and resistant components

Processing information

  • Use of a hardened nozzle is advantageous due to abrasive properties
  • Easy printability due to reduction of shrinkage and warping
