PA12 + CF15

NYLON PA12 + CF is yet another manifestation of the technical capabilities of filament PA12 which has been reinforced with a 5% addition of carbon fibers. It is characterised by high thermal resistance and less shrinkage compared to the unmodified Nylon PA12.

The application of carbon fiber allows for a reduction of weight of the component while maintaining its high structural stiffness.

PA12 + CF has a range of applications across the industry, including the automotive and the engineering sectors, lending itself to the creation of advanced prototypes, drones and final products which require increased durability while reducing their weight.

Note:

It is recommended hardened nozzles are used when regularly printing with Carbon Fibre infused 3D printing filaments.  Plus ALWAYS keep your filaments (especially Nylon based) dry.  Check out an in depth drying article here at All3DP.

NYLON PA12

Thanks to its resistance to high temperatures, alcohol and chemicals, Nylon is particularly useful for mechanical and technical applications. It is extremely durable, strong and unbreakable. It is easily machined with tools designed for metal processing and it is also easily painted, which makes it even more versatile and functional.

It is incredibly flexible – it expands by 50% before it breaks. However, it is not resistant to concentrated alkali's and acids.

APPLICATIONS:

  • Prototypes: car parts, drones, high durability mechanical components
  • Possible substitute for metal components
  • End-use products, part engineering and tool production based on 3D printing
  • Mechanical parts: guides, gears (cog wheels)
  • Technical components: slide bearings, nuts
