Zortrax Z-GLASS is a semi-transparent thermoplastic copolyester filament with high elasticity and high tensile strength properties.
Z-GLASS 1.75mm is ideally suited to prototyping and thanks to its unique light-transmitting surface, it is perfect for prototypes where the finished product would be made from glass or translucent plastic. Parts printed with Z-GLASS are glossy and translucent.
The filament is resistant to salts, acids and alkalis so it’s also suitable for use in pharmaceutical packaging and it’s hard-wearing enough for use in the automotive industry too. For example, Zortrax say Z-GLASS can be happily used to print headlights and taillights.
The official properties for Z-GLASS are – medium hardness, high elasticity, medium impact strength and high tensile strength. This is not the most durable filament created by Zortrax but it is the only semi-transparent one. It comes on a spool. The material itself is thermoplastic copolyester mixed with glass fibre, and it is supported by the M200 only. If you own a Zortrax Inventure, unfortunately there is not yet a translucent filament available.

Whenever we are asked by someone what 3D printer they should buy, there are always a few brands on the tip of our tongue. And Zortrax is always one of them. The reason is simple - quality. From their printers to their filaments and supplies, Zortrax create a quality product. We know fresh from the box, their printers will work, and their materials will be on point. There’s never an unwelcome surprise with Zortrax.
This consistency is why professionals use them religiously. From moving product prototyping in-house to making accurate dental models from 3D patient scans, there’s a Zortrax 3D printer to be found in nearly every application. Not on a trial basis either, but as an embedded product that solves a design or production challenge.
Zortrax was founded in 2013 and is a Polish brand. Early machines won awards, and that trend has continued ever since. They make their own filaments which offer an additive manufacturing solution to common applications. Z-NYLON, for example, is incredibly strong and can be processed with machines meant for machining metals. There are countless more materials to choose from which transcend the use cases of ABS and PLA.
We are an authorised Zortrax reseller and can recommend the right product for your use case. Please contact us if you require help choosing.
