Glass-filled engineering plastic with good stiffness, elevated temperature resistance, and isotropic properties.
Outstanding functional performance
DuraForm GF plastic is a rugged rugged thermoplastic that withstand aggressive functional use in both rapid manufacturing and prototyping applications. Duraform GF material is great for producing high quality, complex parts with excellent surface finish and feature detail.
Choose DuraForm GF material for adverse testing conditions.
DuraForm GF material’s stiffness, heat resistance, and mechanical properties and integrity make it a perfect material for extreme testing conditions. DuraForm GF is is chemically resistant to alkalis, hydrocarbonates, fuels and solvents.
Low Volume Production
Duraform GF is ideal material for Low Volume Production and Direct Digital Manufacturing of end use parts which require toughness and higher impact strength. Parts can be made quickly with a high degree of accuracy and are a very economical vs traditional manufacturing processes. With no tooling required parts can be printed from digital CAD data within hours, compared to weeks for traditional manufacturing were lead times for molding could be 6-12 weeks.
