Maximum quantity available reached.

Developed by Owens Corning

world leader in composite solutions, XSTRAND™ GF30-PA6 (GLASS FIBER REINFORCED POLYAMIDE 6)500 grams filament for 3D printing is a reinforced material designed to be compatible with any standard Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printer.


BENEFITS & PERFORMANCES:

  • Materials designed for functional prototyping and industrial applications
  • Engineered reinforced plastics
  • Very high stiffness and strength (up to +250% compare to ABS)
  • Large operational temperature range (-20°C to 120°C)
  • Good chemical and UV resistance
  • High wear resistance
  • Excellent layer adhesion
  • Reduced warping effect compared to neat PA6

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS:

XSTRAND™ GF30-PA6 is designed for functional prototyping and demanding applications such as industrial tooling, transportation, electronics, small appliances, sports & leisure...

How much temperature can the printed part handle? Wet or dry?

This is linked to the Heat Temperature Deflection Test. We choose the highest ISO standard value at 1.8MPa and both materials standard specimen is handling 120°C in temperature. For this standard test, material are conditioned 48h at 23°C and 50% moisture air before the test. However, this is a general value that is totally dependent to the part geometry.

How is XSTRAND different than Carbon Fiber filled Nylon/PA?

WARNING: When melted, XSTRAND filament can be abrasive due to its glass reinforcement. Printing with XSTRAND may reduce lifespan of brass nozzles and extruder driving wheels. It is advised to use hardened steel nozzles and extruder driving wheels. 

Nozzle Settings

Hardened steel nozzle is highly recommended to print XSTRAND filaments. When melted, XSTRAND filament can be abrasive due to its glass reinforcement. Using hardened steel nozzles and extruder driving wheels is advised.

Bed Components

  • Bed Temperature: 80 - 110°C
  • If printing on glass either use reinforced strapping packaging tape (ie: Scotch Extreme Tape) on the bed with a bed temperature around 30 - 50°C or use Wolfbite ultra for polypropylene from Airwolf.
  • It is recommended to use a thicker bed (1/4" to 3/8"), such as high density polyethylene plate as a printing surface, instead of a glass plate for bed temperatures 30 - 50°C.
  • For large flat surfaces, a raft is required to reduce warping. 5-8mm raft offset and an airgap of .16 - .18 are recommended for best results.

xstrand 3d printer filaments

XSTRAND filaments must be stored in a dark and temperate location. It is recommended that the product remain closed in its original packaging until use. 

* IMPORTANT NOTE: GF30-PA6 is very sensitive to moisture. For optimal printing results, the product must be dried at least 4 hours in the oven at 80°C prior to use and stored in a dry, Pelican like case, even during printing.
