XSTRAND™ a new material for functional prototyping and tooling applications

Composite materials are leading the way for high-performance 3D printed prototypes. In tooling, electronics and automotive industries, businesses require materials that can withstand industrial-grade thermal, tensile and pressural tests. Owens Corning, a leading supplier of glass fiber for composites, has developed the XSTRAND™ line of fiberglass 3D printer filaments to fulfil manufacturing’s demand for functional […]

Owens Corning fiberglass reinforced 3D printing filament boosts performance

Functional prototypes are an important application for industrial 3D printing. Materials used in components for aircraft, automotive, electronics or sports – must be reliable and cost effective for product development. For lightweight, high strength parts, the kind you’d find in F1 cars or the core-composites of snowboards, fiber reinforcements are a standout solution. Owens Corning, […]
