Fiberforce NYLFORCE Carbon is composed of a tough nylon reinforced with 20% carbon fibres. The material is perfect for precise and stable prints of parts that need to withstand high temperatures, strains and impacts.
NYLFORCE Carbon is ideally suited to the production of high-performance prototypes and end-use parts that stand up to rigorous testing and wear and tear. The material meets the demanding needs of the production environment, allowing the replacement of metal tooling for applications such as forming and end-of-arm tooling.
Fiberforce NYLFORCE Glass is composed of a tough nylon reinforced with 15% glass fibres. Glass fibres provide a reflective sparkle within the printed object while enabling precise, structurally strong prints.
NYLFORCE Glass is a great choice for functional parts and structural models, maintaining the toughness and layer bonding of nylon with the increased stiffness and reduced warpage from the addition of the glass fibre.
Uniquely, models and parts printed with NYLFORCE Glass can be dyed with clothing dye (e.g. RIT dye) for any colour.
IMPORTANT! - Carbon and Glass fibres are abrasive and will result in fast wear of regular nozzles – NYLFORCE Carbon and Glass must only be used with the RBXDV-S1 SingleX™ head including the Olsson Ruby nozzle. You will invalidate the limited warranty included on any other head if used with this filament.
NYLFORCE Carbon and Glass can also be used with other brands of 3D printer that has a print head which contains Olsson Ruby nozzles.
Each reel is sealed in a reusable zip lock bag with a sachet of silica gel to control moisture. The bag is then placed in a sturdy windowed box for shipping.
Included on the reel is an eeprom which can be read by a Robox® device. The EEPROM stores data on the material and statistics of use.
