CarbonX™ CFR Carbon Fiber Reinforced ABS Filament
CarbonX™ CFR-ABS is a high-performance carbon fiber reinforced ABS filament ideal for anyone that desires a structrual component with high modulus, excellent surface quality, dimensional stability, light weight, and ease of printing. Made using 15% High-Modulus Carbon Fiber (not carbon powder or milled carbon fiber). Made in the USA using premium Sabic MG-94 ABS and high modulus carbon fiber.
CarbonX™ CFR ABS is suitable for use in practically any desktop 3D Printer that has a heated bed. Please note - carbon fiber reinforced filaments are abrasive and can wear out a brass or aluminum nozzle. We recommend our A2 Hardened Steel Nozzles - HERE
New Data: We updated the mechanical and thermal data on our carbon fiber grades. You can see the new data HERE on our blog
*Please note: 2kg, 4kg, and 10kg reels are special order and may take up to 1 week to ship. 2kg and 4kg reel dimensions are 11.75" diameter, 4" wide, 2" arbor. 10kg reel dimensions are 16" diameter, 5.5" wide, 1.5" arbor.
Recommended Print Conditions:
- Extruder: 220-240°C. 3DXMAX™ CFR is a filled product and has a higher melt viscosity vs. unfilled resin. Therefore, it is sometimes necessary to print at higher temperatures to allow the resin to flow properly.
- Bed Temp: 100-110°C
- Bed Prep: 3DXTech Kapton Tape, ABS/Acetone Slurry
- Nozzle: We currently recommend minimum 0.4mm orifice.
- 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.
