MatterHackers Blue NylonG Glass Fiber Filament - 2.85mm (0.5kg)

NylonG is a glass-fiber reinforced nylon for 3D printing, offering excellent impact-resistance, incredible tensile strength, and great inter-layer adhesion. It retains dimensional accuracy better than standard nylon and absorbs large amounts of kinetic energy, making it ideal for parts that need to withstand repeated shock. The filament creates clean, complex parts in various colors with no post-processing needed and pairs well with Ionic support materials for dual extrusion prints.

  • Glass fiber-infused for extra strength and impact resistance
  • Excellent at absorbing large amounts of kinetic energy
  • Produces clean, complex parts with no post-processing needed

Glass Fiber Reinforced Nylon for the Toughest 3D Printed Parts

NylonG is a glass-fiber infused material that has excellent impact-resistant capabilities and incredible tensile strength.

Here are the key features of NylonG: 

  • Gass Fiber infused for extra strength
  • Excellent impact-resistance
  • Great inter-layer adhesion
  • Incredible tensile strength
  • Retains dimensional accuracy better than standard nylon

Great for Parts that Take a Beating

NylonG is excellent for parts that need to absorb large amounts of kinetic energy. Under repeated shock, glass-fiber reinforced NylonG 3D prints maintain their shape and structural integrity.

  • Impact and shock resistant
  • Absorbs large amounts of kinetic energy
  • High tensile strength
