G6-Impact™ filament is a new promising addition to our rapidly expanding line of functional FDM materials. G6-Impact™ is strong with some degree of flexibility and exceptional shock mitigation and vibrational damping performance. The unique synergetic performance of graphene and carbon fibers will expand your capabilities far beyond what used to be possible by helping you 3D print high precision objects with great vibration damping performance while at the same time maintaining bearing capacity and high impact resistance.
This filament was formulated to allow you to 3D print using almost any commercially available desktop FDM/FFF 3D printer. However, please keep in mind that this material was designed for performance in highly demanding engineering applications rather than for everyday 3D printing. Thus, 3D printing parameters for this material are slightly different from conventional FDM filaments. We kindly advise to adhere to recommendations below to achieve optimal damping performance.

Damping is the energy dissipation property of material that reflects its ability to convert mechanical energy to thermal energy. The amount of energy dissipated is the measure of material damping ability. Vibration damping is highly beneficial in eliminating noise in structural, optical and electronic components. The G6-Impact™material is also available in pelleted form which can be best utilized for injection molding, extrusion or thermoforming.
The G6-Impact™material will deliver benefits in multiple everyday use gadgets like smartphones, cameras, and laptop computers where interconnections can be destroyed or weakened due to vibrations caused by moving internal parts or external stress and shock. Similarly, G6-Impact™ can be used for stabilization of sensitive scientific instruments, optical holders, microscope and laser mounts and pads.
In automotive, military and aviation industries, G6-Impact™ can reduce vehicle and in-flight vibrations, and can be used as base material for cable and equipment mounts and platforms. Moreover, G6-Impact™ will be useful in industrial setting to reduce vibrations in bearing and structures. Thermoformed tiles can used to reduce noise and vibrations from heavy machinery etc. It can also be employed in tool handles, protective seals and mats, and construction footwear.Sporting gears made out of G6-Impact™ may include golf club and baseball bat handles, where vibrational shock to joints leads to trauma and fatigue.
Pliable G6-Impact™ material is highly machinable and can be drilled through, cut, screwed or polished. It is very malleable and will sustain a great deal of hammering and pressure deformation in a way similar to metals before failure. Also, inserting a layer of G6-Impact™ may protect other adhesive substrates from debonding or delamination due to vibrations by enhancing overall lifetime and integrity of the objects. This unique property perfectly fills the niche where catastrophic/instant failure is not an option. Its damping properties expand through a large temperature range (-40 oC to 90oC) setting apart and making it highly suitable to extreme conditions both indoors and outdoors.
