GF30-PA6 was developed to meet the demands of the real world. GF30-PA6 is a reinforced PA6 nylon filament with 30% glass fiber that is up to 250% stronger than carbon fiber reinforced ABS.TALK TO AN EXPERT
Up to 250% stronger than common filaments, XSTRAND® GF30-PP AND GF30-PA6 ensure high performance and wear resistance in the most extreme conditions. Developed with superior durability, XSTRAND® products give you the ability to design and print parts on site in a fraction of the time at a fraction of the cost. Advantages include chemical and UV resistance, thermal stability, superior durability, easy to use, high performance, design flexibility and the ability to test solutions in real world conditions.
Manufacture on demand with XSTRAND® filaments. XSTRAND® filaments makes it possible to design, print, and make modifications to parts and tools on site. XSTRAND® GF30-PA6 ensures high performance, thermal stability and wear resistance for all your manufacturing and prototyping needs.
Quick prototyping, testing, and custom design with an industrial grade material. Customize small scale production for new parts or rapidly prototype parts for testing.

XSTRAND® products are designed to be compatible with most open Fused Filament Fabricated 3D Printers.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: We recommend the use local exhaust ventilation equipped with HEPA filters to remove ultra-fine particles and/or carbon filters to remove VOCs on all 3D printers.
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.
