Clariant's 20% glass fiber reinforced polyamide 6/66 (PA6/66-GF20) is a great material for the production of strong 3D printed parts. The glass fibers help increase mechanical properties and minimize warpage while printing.

Benefits
  • Strong and tough engineering thermoplastic
  • Chemically resistant
  • High heat resistance
  • Good tensile strength
  • Glass fiber reinforcement helps minimize warping during printing and improves strength
  • Reduced thermo-oxidative degradation
  • Minimized undesired yellowing due to ultraviolet light


Applications*

  • Mechanical and technical application parts that require strength, toughness and thermal resistance
  • Prototypes
  • Tools, jigs, fixtures

*Subject to detailed product specifications.

Color Range
Standard

  • Black

Custom colors available upon request.

  • Print Temperature = 240-260°C
  • Print Speed = 20-50 mm/s
  • Bed Adhesion = A polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) based glue coated on a glass or carbon fiber surface
  • Bed Temperature = ideally 80°C
  • Fan Settings = off to low

Notes: parameters are dependent on printer used; Clariant tests were performed on an Ultimaker S5 printer.
