Markforged Launches High-Strength, High-Temperature Fiberglass

Markforged customers working in high temperature environments can now take advantage of same day, strong parts.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Markforged announces their newest material which allows aerospace and automotive customers to leverage Mark Two parts for use in "under hood" applications. This new fiberglass is twice as strong as Markforged's standard fiberglass material and has a 30% higher heat deflection point (140°C).


Markforged empowers engineers with industrial strength 3D printing. By reinforcing nylon parts with continuous strands of carbon fiber, fiberglass, Kevlar®, and now high-strength high-temperature (HSHT) Fiberglass, the Mark Two prints parts as strong as aluminum for everything from functional prototyping, tooling and fixtures, to customized end-use parts.

"2016 is the year of materials at Markforged," says CEO Greg Mark. "Throughout the year you'll see the release of stronger, more advanced materials that expand the range of parts that can be 3D printed."

In addition to the launch of the HSHT fiberglass, Markforged is officially shipping the Mark Two industrial strength 3D printer. Announced at SolidWorks World 2016 in the beginning of February, the first Mark Twos started shipping to customers before the end of February.

High-Strength, High-Temperature fiberglass is available with the Mark Two Enterprise Kit.
