3DXTech CarbonX™ CFR Carbon Fiber Reinforced Nylon 3D Filament

CarbonX™ CFR Carbon Fiber Reinforced Nylon Filament is a semi-aromatic polyamide copolymer reinforced with high-modulus carbon fiber.  

Tired of nylon that warps?  This is the answer you've been looking for.  Excellent dimensional stability comes from the carbon fiber and the semi-aromatic nylon.

Why is it important that CarbonX™ CFR Nylon is a semi-aromatic polyamide?
Semi-aromatic nylons have a large cyclical structure in its backbone which makes them stiffer, more chemically resistant, less moisture sensitive, and have improved dimensional stability vs. aliphatic nylons such as PA6, PA66, and PA12.

Please note:  

  • Carbon fiber reinforced filaments are abrasive and can wear out a brass or aluminum nozzle. We recommend using hardened steel nozzles.
  • Customers should test their parts to determine end-use suitability using this polymer.  

Material features:

  • High Modulus Carbon Fiber - excellent stiffness
  • Semi-Aromatic Polyamide
  • Lower moisture uptake vs. PA6
  • Improved chemical resistance vs. PA6
  • Less shrinkage / warp vs. PA6
  • Low-Gloss Surface
  • Excellent Printability

Available for:

  • Mankati E180

Applications:

Ideal for anyone that desires a structural component with high modulus, improved chemical and thermal resistance, excellent surface quality, and ease of printing.
