PA-CF (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Nylon 12)



Compatible with hIgh temperature Flashforge 3d printers (0.6mm hardened nozzle recommended)-

  • Guider IIs
  • Creator 3
  • Creator 4 HT

This is an engineering composite material suitable for high strength, high abrasion and heat resistant applications. The toughness of nylon PA12 is combined with 20% chopped nylon to add stiffness. It is ideally suited to applications that require higher strength and rigidity. The material demonstrates high strength, high abrasion resistance and high-temperature resistance (durable performance in up to 150 degrees Celsius). The carbon fiber reinforcement not only increases the toughness of the material but also limits shrinkage. 

The printed finish is matt in appearance. 

Flashforge PA-CF nylon carbon composite 3d print sample

This material requires a printer capable of high print temperatures of 300 degrees Celsius. 

Nylon is a material that can easily absorb moisture from the atmosphere. It is recommend to dry this material out prior to printing for optimal results. If excessive stringing and or bubbling occurs during printing, this will be a sure indicator that the filament is contaminated with moisture.

This material is abrasive and with wear our a )standard nozzle. It is recommended to use a tougher material nozzle such as hardened steel or stainless steel or a ruby nozzle with a larger then standard nozzle size of 0.5 to 0.6mm.

For the Flashforge Creator 3 or Guider IIs ithe 0.6mm hardened nozzle is recommended for optimal results.

An application of PVA glue is recommended to assist adhesion to print surfaces.

Printing with a brim is recommended to ensure good bed surface adhesion for this material.
