General Information

MarkForged's High-Strength, High-Temperature Fiberglass (HSHT) is a material uniquely designed for users who need strong parts for applications in higher temperature environments, over 105°C.

An example of parts that would need HSHT fiberglass are prototypes that are used in under-hood automotive applications. The exception would be in the engine component itself where the temperature reaches much higher than 140°C.

The following is useful information regarding printing with HSHT Fiberglass:

  • Printing with HSHT Fiberglass is approximately 50% slower than printing with Standard Fiberglass.
  • If printing with Nylon, is is normal for a slight yellowing of the printed Nylon to occur when printing with HSHT Fiberglass.
