Buy the material


Ultrafuse® PA6 GF30 is a unique compound specifically developed for FFF printing. Due to the glass fiber content of 30%, parts tend to warp less. In addition the excellent layer adhesion and its compatibility with the water soluble support Ultrafuse® BVOH make this material the perfect solution to develop industrial applications on an FFF printer.

With its high wear and chemical resistance, high stiffness and strength, Ultrafuse® PA6 GF30 is perfect for a wide variety of applications in automotive, electronics or transportation.

Ultrafuse PA6 GF30 is designed for functional prototyping and demanding applications such as industrial tooling, transportation, electronics, small appliances, sports & leisure
