Glass Fiber reinforced polypropylene filament with 30% glass fiber content - 500g spool, 2.85mm filament
When melted, XSTRAND™ filament can be abrasive due to its glass reinforcement. Printing with XSTRAND™ may reduce lifespan of brass nozzles and extruder driving wheels. It is advised to use hardened steel nozzles and extruder driving wheels. For Ultimaker Printers, you will need the CC Red 0.6 print core – a wear-resistant ruby nozzle for the Ultimaker S5.
