PolyMide™ is a family of Nylon/polyamide-based filaments. Produced with Polymaker’s Warp-Free™ technology, PolyMide™ filaments deliver engineering properties intrinsic to nylon and ease of printing.

PolyMide™ PA6-CF is a carbon fiber reinforced PA6 (Nylon 6) filament. The carbon fiber reinforcement provides significantly improved stiffness, strength, and heat resistance with outstanding layer adhesion.

We highly recommend using a wear-resistant nozzle, to print with the PolyBox™ and keep it in dry condition (relative humidity of 15% or less) at all times to maintain the best printing results.


Excellent Stiffness & Strength

Featuring a tensile modulus of 7.4 GPA on the XY axis and 4.3 GPA on the z-axis, PolyMide™ PA6-CF is well suited for high-performance industrial and engineering applications. PolyMide™ PA6-CF combines extreme stiffness and best-in-class tensile strength.

Excellent Heat Resistance

Featuring a heat deflection temperature of up to 215°C, this material lends itself perfectly to functioning automotive applications where strength and heat resistance are required.

Outstanding Layer Adhesion

All other brands of fiber-reinforced material show a decrease in z-axis layer adhesion when compared with their non-fiber reinforced nylons, producing a part that is only stronger on the X-Y axis but detrimental to the z-axis. Polymakers new technology in PolyMide™ PA6-CF not only solves this problem but actually increases z-axis tensile strength creating more isotropic parts that are strong in every direction.

Wear Resistant and Tough

Parts printed in PolyMide™ PA6-CF display excellent toughness and wear-resistant properties.

ESD Safe

PolyMide™ PA6-CF is an ESD-safe material making it a suitable candidate for printing electronic jigs and fixtures.

Improved Printability

Unlike many other nylon filaments, PolyMide™ PA6-CF is extremely easy to work with, exhibiting excellent dimensional stability. It is compatible with most filament-based 3D printers with no heated bed or chamber required.

Uncompromised Quality

Polymakers leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing ensure reliable printing and consistency across spools and batches.

PolyMide™ PA6-CF Features Fiber Adhesion™ and Warp-Free™ technology


Warp-Free™ technology enables the production of nylon-based filaments that can be 3D printed with excellent dimensional stability and near-zero warpage. This is achieved by the fine control of microstructure and crystallization behavior of nylon, which enables the material to fully release the internal stress before solidification. The Warp-Free™ technology in PolyMide™ PA6-CF is designed to work best with minimal bed temperatures.

Fiber Adhesion™

Fiber Adhesion™ technology improves the layer adhesion of fiber-reinforced materials, by optimizing the surface chemistry of the fibers to achieve better dispersion and bonding to the matrix. This results in better strength along the z-axis and reduced mechanical anisotropy.
