Filament - Owens Corning XSTRAND_GF30PA6

Worth knowing

Owens Corning® XSTRAND® PA6 GF30 high-performance composite filament is a PA6 naylon reinforced with 30 wt% glass fibers that was developed especially for functional prototyping and industrial use. The fiberglass-reinforced filament scores above all with its high strength and temperature resistance, which is ideal for generating durable and robust components. In addition, the reinforced PA6 has very good UV resistance, which makes this material suitable for outdoor applications, such as products in the sports and leisure sector.

With regard to the processing of this filament, its abrasive property should be noted, which means that the use of a hardened nozzle is recommended. Nevertheless, good printability is given, as the tendency to warping is reduced by excellent plane adhesion.

Application examples:
Prototype construction, automotive industry, bicycle technology, medical technology e.g. prostheses and components for wheelchairs, transport technology, tool technology.

Advantages

  • 250 % higher strength and stiffness compared to conventional ABS
  • heat resistance of 110 °C
  • good chemical and UV resistance
  • application at high temperature range (-20 °C to 120 °C)
  • for extremely light and resistant components
  • ideal for outdoor applications

Processing information

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