Our Heavy Duty Glass Fiber Nylon filament is based on the success of our Carbon fiber nylon which is one of our strongest 3D printing materials! Glass fiber nylon excels especially when it comes to shock and impact resistance.
Glass Fiber Nylon encompasses the attributes of industrial nylon and of glass fiber in one material:
- Extremely Tough
- Impact & shock resistance
- Heat resistance (147°C)
- Fatigue strength
- Tensile strength
- Low warpage
- Excellent adhesion
- Added rigidity to standard nylon.
- Low-Gloss silver-grey finish
- Significantly less visible layer lines
** Please note that his material is highly abrasive. We strongly recommend using a hardened nozzle when printing with this material.
Glass fiber nylon VS Carbon fiber nylon:
The main differences when comparing Glass fiber to Carbon fiber are the shock and impact resistance. While Carbon fiber nylon has higher tensile strength than the glass version; the impact and shock resistance of Glass fiber nylon exceed that of the carbon fiber version. When deciding between Glass fiber and Carbon fiber nylon we recommend the following: Parts that will be subjected to repeated impact and shock should be printed using our Glass Fiber Nylon while parts that will be put under constant stress should be printed using our Carbon Fiber Nylon.
Advised 3d print speed:
30 - 150 mm/s
Higher print speeds might require higher nozzle temperatures
Advised Heated bed:
70°C - 80°C
Adheres to a variety of standard bed materials, for best results: Glass or garolite with glue sticks (PVA based)
Advised layer height
For this material we recommend a minimum of 0.2mm layerheight. Due to the length of the fibers layers lower then 0.15mm can cause issues such as clogging or partial clogging of the nozzle.
50% fan cooling is a good starting point, this gives best performance on overhangs and small details. For best mechanical performance try printing with the least amount of cooling needed, for optimal layer adhesion.
