Product Details

CarbonX™ CF-PEEK is one of the premier polymers in FFF/FDM 3D Printing. Made using 10% high-modulus chopped carbon fiber for exceptional stiffness, strength, and dimensional stability. PEEK is one of the highest performance thermoplastics ever invented. It is used in some of the most demanding applications such as seals, gears, bushings, bearings, and pump & compressor components. Industries such as Auto, Aerospace, Defense, Semi-conductor, and Oil/Gas depend on PEEK for applications where failure is not an option.

Material Attributes

  • Superior Mechanical Properties, especially at elevated temperatures
  • Excellent Chemical Resistance
  • Low Coefficient of Linear Thermal Expansion (CTE)
  • Near Zero Moisture Absorption
  • Low smoke and toxic gas emissions

PEEK has an excellent resistance to hydrolysis in boiling water and superheated steam (sterilization/autoclave) at temperatures in excess of 250°C (482°F).

Recommended Print Settings

  • Extruder Temps:  380 - 410°C
  • Bed Temps:  130 - 150°C
  • Bed Prep:  Ultem® PEI tape or sheet
  • Nozzle: We strongly recommend a 0.4mm orifice or larger using one of our A2 Hardened Nozzles - HERE
  • 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.
  • Please note - PEEK has a tendency to stick to metal (PEEK loves metal).  Please make sure to purge out your extruder before it cools down or you run the risk permanent clogs.  Seriously - we know this first hand.
