Creating Functional Composite Parts Using A State of The Art Material And Process Innovation: XSTRAND™

(Owens Corning)

Over the past 2 years Owens Corning has worked to develop a range of technical 3D printing filament products supported by key partners. These innovative products have been specially formulated to allow the incorporation of fiber reinforcement into polymers whilst allowing their easy processing on fused filament fabrication (FFF) printers. This transformation takes FFF (or FDM) fabrication from the niche hobbyist into the environment of functional prototyping and beyond into the manufacture of commercial composite parts through additive production..
