ColorFabb XT - Carbon Fiber

  • Sale
  • Regular price $59.95

colorFabb XT-CF20 is a copolyester based carbon fiber composite material with no less than 20% specially sourced carbon fibers suitable for 3D Printing.

Some of the properties of this filament include:

  • Extreme High Flex Modulus (6.2 GPa), twice as stiff as PLA/PHA
  • Moderate strain at break (8-10%), so no extreme brittle filament, but toughness
  • High Glass Temp. (Tg = 80C)
  • Very high Melt strength
  • Very high Melt Viscosity
  • Good dimensional accuracy and stability
  • Low odor / Styrene Free solution
  • Easy processing on many platforms
  • High attractive matt black surface

Note: CARBON FIBER IS ABRASIVE. A special point of attention is the abrasive nature of the carbon fibers. In general these fibers will accelerate the nozzle-wear of brass nozzles, much faster than unfilled filaments. Use stainless steel nozzles.
