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 0.2mm with CF Grades.
