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.
