CarbonX™ CFR Carbon Fiber Reinforced Co-Polyester Filament 750Gr

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.

  • 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

  • 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.
