Additive Technology: FFF

Kevlar Reinforcement

A tough, lightweight fiber that can bend further than any other reinforcement.

Lightweight & Impact Resistant

Extremely durable and impact resistant, Kevlar can withstand repeated shock and sudden impacts.

Kevlar is used in wide variety of applications, including body armor and bullet proofing. Add Kevlar reinforcement to your Nylon or Onyx parts to create durable parts with excellent impact resistance. Parts reinforced with Kevlar are typically stronger than machined parts at roughly half the price.
