NOTE: Stock arriving 8nd Aug 2020, popular filament

Gen 3 CarbonX™ CF-Nylon Filament is an advanced semi-aromatic polyamide copolymer reinforced with high-modulus carbon fiber.  This filament is ideal for anyone that desires a structural component with high modulus, improved chemical and thermal resistance, excellent surface quality, and ease of printing.  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.  

UP to 30% 'CHOPPED' CARBON FIBRE, 3DXTech are world leading in their class, most CF nylon are powder form.

High-Performance + High Temp Resistance:  

Gen3 CarbonX™ CF-Nylon is a PA6 copolymer made using high-modulus carbon fiber and state-of-the-art compounding and extrusion technology. 

Gen3 has higher HDT than our previous grades (147°C at .45MPa) allowing for expanded use in higher-temp applications.  

Open Source:  You do not need to purchase a special printer for CarbonX™ CF-Nylon.  

Our CF Nylon (Gen 3) is suitable for use in practically any desktop 3D Printer that has a heated bed. 

This makes our CF-PA6 an excellent choice for tools, fixtures, and jigs.  

Colour: Black only

Product Attributes Include:

  • High thermal properties: 150°C HDT
  • Excellent strength and stiffness over a wide temperature range - up to 150°C
  • Very low moisture absorption yielding improved retention of mechanical properties when exposed to humid environments
  • Outstanding chemical resistance
  • Low shrink / warp = excellent dimensional stability 
  • Low density is ideal for light-weight parts - 1.16g/cc

Recommended Print Conditions:

  • Extruder:  240-270°C.  CarbonX™ CFR Nylon exhibits improved layer bonding at higher temperatures.  
  • Bed Temp:  80 - 100°C
  • Bed Prep:  Polyimide Tape, Clean glass with ABS/Acetone Slurry
  • Hardened Nozzle: 0.4mm or larger.  
  • Layer Height:  Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter.  We do not recommend printing layers below 0.25mm with carbon fiber grades.  Lower than 0.25mm may create too much back pressure in the hot end and result in poor feeding, jams, drive gear clicking, and eating a notch into the filament.
