Additive Technology: FFF

Fiberglass Reinforcement

Increase part strength and stiffness at an affordable price.

11x More Rigid Than ABS

Reinforce your parts with Fiberglass to achieve greater strength and stiffness than both ABS and Nylon.

Use Fiberglass reinforcement to print parts that are an order of magnitude stiffer than what ABS or Nylon can provide. Add Fiberglass to your Nylon and Onyx parts to increase stiffness and overall strength. Fiberglass is our most affordable fiber reinforcement and works great for many applications.

Advantages Of Fiberglass

stiffness-thumb

Moderate Strength

Fiberglass provides strength for parts that need just a bit more. It’s 3.5x strong than ABS and can double the strength of Onyx parts.

Impact Resistant

Onyx parts printed with Fiberglass are 8x stiffer. Add Fiberglass to your parts to achieve greater bend forces than most thermoplastics will allow.
