GF-30 PP:

Features and Benefits:

  • Materials designed for functional prototyping and industrial applications
  • Engineered reinforced plastics
  • Very stiff and strong
  • Large operational temperature range: -20 ˚C to 120 ˚C
  • Good chemical and UV resistance
  • Excellent layer adhesion and reduced warping effect compare to neat materials

Printing Recommendations:

  • XSTRAND™ filaments are designed to be compatible with most of open fused filament fabrication 3D printers available on the market.
  • Hardened steel nozzle is highly recommended to print XSTRAND™. When melted, XSTRAND™ filament can be abrasive due to its glass reinforcement. Using hardened steel nozzles and extruder driving wheels is advised. Hardened steel nozzles can be found at

  • Bed components are recommended as follows:
    • If printing on a glass bed use one of the following:
      • Use reinforced strapping packaging tape on the bed (e.g. Scotch Extreme Tape), with bed temperature around 30-50˚C
      • or Use Wolfbite Ultra for polypropylene from Airwolf
    • A high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plate as printing surface, instead of glass plate for example, is highly recommended. Bed temperature at 30-50˚C. It’s better if the HDPE bed is thicker (thickness of 1/4’’ to 3/8’’). First layer width of 130% and height of 75% are recommended too.
    • Or use a perforated bed (such as the one on Zortrax machines). For Zortrax machines, use default ABS setting.
    • For large flat surface, a raft is required to reduce warping. 5-8mm raft offset and airgap 0.16 – 0.18 are recommended.
  • Nozzle temperature: 220 – 280 ̊C
  • Bed temperature: 80-110 ̊C
  • Nozzle diameter: >0.4mm
