Nylon+GF30 glass fiber reinforced Nylon 6 Copolymer (PA6) is nothing less than an industrial-grade beast! Formulated to be exceptionally stiff and strong, all without being brittle. Polyamides (PA) are the workhorse of the plastics industry worldwide thanks to their excellent mechanical, chemical, and thermal resistance. The addition of heavy glass fiber reinforcement takes it to the next level.

Benefits of FIBREX NYLON+GF30 Filament Include:

  • Printable on practically any 3D printer with a heated bed
  • Ideal for structural engineering-grade applications
  • Exceptionally stiff and strong, without being brittle
  • Excellent chemical resistance makes it suitable for automotive and industrial applications
  • Resists fuels, lubricants, heat, and mechanical loading
  • High thermal properties keep it strong up to 170°C in use, depending on printing and mechanical loads applied
  • Glass fiber reinforcement improves dimensional stability, reduces shrinkage, lift, and warp
  • Very strong layer bonding

    Filament Specifications:

    1.75mm +/- 0.05mm in diameter

    Recommended Print Settings:

    • Extruder: 260-280°C
    • Bed Temp: 60-75°C
    • Nozzle: We currently recommend using one of our abrasion-resistant Vanadium™ Nozzles with a minimum diameter of 0.4mm.
    • Other: Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter. We do not recommend printing layers smaller than 0.25mm with glass fiber reinforced filaments
    • Bed Prep: Magigoo Bed Prep or 3DXTECH Polyimide Tape gives us the best results
    • Heated Chamber: Not required, but a 30-80°C chamber does improve layer bonding and finished part mechanical properties
    • Supports: AquaTek™ water soluble X1 USM Universal Support Material works ideal for complex parts.
    • Drying Instructions: 90°C for 4 hours.

      Abrasive Material

      This material is particularly abrasive among 3D printing filaments. Users may find standard brass nozzles are chewed through very quickly compared to standard wear and tear. When worn through, the nozzle diameter will widen inconsistently and the printer will experience extrusion issues.

      Because of this, it's strongly recommended this carbon fiber 3D printer filament be printed through a hardened steel nozzle rather than a softer metal, making our Vanadium Nozzles an excellent choice for this material.
