3DXTech CarbonX™ CF-Nylon 12 Filament 500g Black
CarbonX™ PA12+CF Printing Filament
CarbonX™ Carbon Fiber PA12 is made using high-modulus carbon fiber and a specialty Nylon 12 (PA12) that we chose for it’s printability, thermal properties, and chemical resistance. PA12+CF is widely used in a variety of industries due to its excellent chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, and wide processing window. Our formulation ensures very low shrinkage in the printed part resulting in excellent dimensional stability, making our PA12+CF an excellent choice for tools, fixtures, and jigs.
Benefits of PA12+CF Includes:
High thermal properties, with a CUT of 120°C and HDT of 150°C
Excellent strength and stiffness over a wide temperature range, up to 150°C
Very low moisture absorption yielding improved retention of mechanical properties even when exposed to humid environments
Low density makes it ideal for light-weight parts
Superior chemical resistances, especially when compared to PA6 nylons
Low shrinkage and warping for high dimensional stability and reproducible part-to-part measurements
Recommended Print Settings:
Bed Temp: 90-110°C
Nozzle: We currently recommend a hardened steel nozzle with a minimum diameter of 0.4mm. This material is particularly abrasive and users may find standard brass nozzles are chewed through very quickly, and the nozzle diameter will widen inconsistently causing extrusion issues.
Layer Height: Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter. We do not recommend printing layers smaller than 0.2mm with carbon fiber reinforced filaments
Bed Prep: Magigoo Bed Prep and 3DXTECH Polyimide Tape gives us the best results
Heated Chamber: Recommended
Supports: AquaTek™ water soluble X1 USM Universal Support Material is designed to work with complex models
Drying Instructions: 90°C for 4 hours
Diameter Range: 1.75mm | 2.85mm
