CarbonX™ PP+CF

SKU: PP01010750BK0


CarbonX™ CF-PP is made using a specialty formulated polypropylene copolymer reinforced with high-modulus chopped carbon fiber. This filament is based on a patent-pending formulation that offers improved thermal properties and low shrinkage/warp compared to competitive PP-based compounds.

Please Note - due to the low density of CF-PP, the 750g reel has the equivalent amount of filament as a 1kg reel of ABS or ASA.

Product Attributes:

  • Does not absorb moisture
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Low density/light weight
  • High strength and stiffness
  • Ease of printing - suitable for use on practically any 3D printer

Carbon fiber reinforced filaments are abrasive and will easily wear out a brass or aluminum nozzles. We highly recommend our Hardened Steel Nozzles when printing with carbon or glass fiber materials

Chemical Resistance:

  • Acids: Acetic, Boric, Hydrochloric, Phosphoric, Stearic, Sulfuric, Uric
  • Bases: Hydroxides of Ammonium, Barium, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium
  • Solvents: Acetone, Ethanol, MEK, Phenol (10%), Water

Note: Chemical resistance information is for the base resin used in formulation and customers are encouraged to test parts to determine fitness for any particular use.

Recommended Print Conditions:

  • Extruder: 220-250°C depending on printer (up to 270°C on some printers)
  • Bed Temp: 23-60°C
  • Bed Prep: Packaging Tape (PP-based) or Polypropylene Sheet
  • Hardened Nozzle: 0.4mm or larger. We strongly recommend our Hardened Steel Nozzles
  • 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.

Spools are 750g unless otherwise requested
