Product Details

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.

Material 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.

Recommended Print Settings

  • Extruder:  220-250°C depending on printer
  • Bed Temp:  23-60°C
  • Bed Prep:  Magigoo PP, Packaging Tape (PP-based)
  • Hardened Nozzle: 0.4mm or larger.
  • 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.
