If you place an order today for PETG CarbonX this will be on BACKORDER, new shipment here 29th Nov 2021.

Made in the USA using premium PETG and High-Modulus Carbon Fiber (not carbon powder or milled carbon fiber).  CarbonX™ CF-PETG is an improved CF reinforced 3D printing filament vs. the competition.  This filament is ideal for anyone that desires a structural component with high modulus, excellent surface quality, dimensional stability, light weight, and ease of printing.  

Carbon fiber reinforced filaments are abrasive and can wear out a brass or aluminum nozzle.  We recommend our Hardened Steel Nozzles

Benefits of CarbonX™ CF-PETG include:

  • Superior Chemical Resistance vs. ABS
  • Amorphous:  Low and near isotropic shrinkage
  • Low moisture absorption:  3X lower vs. ABS
  • Very low odor emitted during printing
  • Wide processing range:  230 - 270°C 

Chemical Resistance:  Unstressed tensile bars molded of PETG exhibit good resistance to dilute aqueous solutions of mineral acids, bases, salts, and soaps, and to aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, and a variety of oils. Halogenated hydrocarbons, short chain length ketones, and aromatic hydrocarbons dissolve or swell the plastic. 

New Data:  We updated the mechanical and thermal data on our carbon fiber grades. 

*Please note:  2kg and 4kg reels are special order and generally take 6 days to ship.

Recommended Print Conditions:

  • Extruder:  Ideally 230 to 260°C
  • Platform Temp:  70 to 90°C
  • Platform Prep:  Clean glass w/ Kapton Tape, PVA-based glue, Hairspray
  • Nozzle:  We currently recommend minimum 0.40mm orifice.  
  • Layer Height:  Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter.  We do not recommend printing layers below 0.2mm with CF Grades.  
  • Carbon fiber filament is more abrasive than unfilled materials, so extended use will result in more wear on your nozzle.  
  • Support:  Our Aquatek water soluble support works great to create complex parts.
  • Drying Instructions:  Please see the following instructions for when you want to dry out this filament.
