CARBON FIBER EXCELLENCE – Nylon Carbon Fiber (5%)
NYLON PA12 + CF5 is yet another manifestation of the technical capabilities of filament PA12 which has been reinforced with 5%  addition of carbon fibers. It is characterized by high thermal resistance and less shrinkage compared to the unmodified Nylon PA12.

The application of carbon fiber allows for a reduction of weight of the component while maintaining its high structural stiffness.

PA12 + CF has a range of applications across the industry, including the automotive and the engineering sectors, lending itself to the creation of advanced prototypes, drones and final products which require increased durability while reducing their weight.

APPLICATIONS:
Prototypes: car parts, drones, high durability mechanical components
Substitutes of metal elements
End-use products, part engineering and tool production based on 3D printing

Description

Retraction (direct) 2-3 mm
Retraction (bowden) 4-6 mm
Retraction Speed 20-45 mm/s
Drying conditions 80°C / 4h
Notes The material has highly abrasive properties. We recommend the use of hardened steel or ruby nozzles.
Wear gloves (the possibility of micro damages on the skin). Use a dust mask and protective glasses when processing.

 

Print Surface Material Properties Bed Temp Adhesives / Release Agents
Glass / Borosilicate Glass Poor adhesion 90°C – 110°C Magigoo PA needed
Ceramic Glass Poor adhesion 90°C – 110°C Magigoo PA needed
Textured PEI Glass Good adhesion 90°C – 110°C Magigoo PA needed
Smooth PEI Spring Steel Sheet Poor adhesion 90°C – 110°C Magigoo PA needed
Textured PEI Spring Steel Sheet Good adhesion 90°C – 110°C Magigoo PA needed

 

Nylon PA12 is very hygroscopic. it must be stored in an airtight container and ideally dried before printing. an enclosed print chamber is highly recommended.
