ABS filament with reinforcement of short FIBERS (<100MICRAS) of CARBON.
CF-ABS is a filament of ABS reinforced with high performance carbon fiber for people who want a structural component with high qualities, excellent surface quality, dimensional stability, light weight and ease of printing.
Made with 15% carbon fiber at our facilities in Irún – Gipuzkoa, CF-ABS is an exceptional material and perfect for your 3D prints.
CF-ABS is suitable for use on virtually any desktop 3D printer that has a hot print base.
Keep in mind that carbon fiber reinforced filaments are abrasive and can wear a brass or aluminum nozzle.
Available in diameters of 1.75 and 2.85 mm. in coil of 0.75 kg.
Recommended printing conditions:
Extruder: 220-240 ° C. CF-ABS is a filled product and has a higher melt viscosity than unfilled resin. Therefore, it is sometimes necessary to print at higher temperatures to allow the resin to flow properly.
Base temperature: 100-110 ° C
Nozzle: Minimum of 0.4 mm.
Layer height: the ideal height of the layer is 60% of the diameter of the nozzle. We do not recommend printing layers below 0.25 mm with carbon fiber grades. A value less than 0.25 mm can generate too much pressure at the hot end and cause poor feed, jamming, clicks of the driving gear and a notch in the filament.
