3DXTECH™ CarbonX™ PP + CF15
About The Materials
CarbonX™ PP+CF is made using a specialty formulated PP copolymer and reinforced with premium high-modulus carbon fiber. This material offers ease of printing, strength & stiffness, excellent dimensional stability, and an amazing surface finish.
CarbonX™ Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene (PP+CF) 3D Filament
CarbonX™ PP+CF 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.
The reels contain 750g of filament, but based on the very low density of PP+CF, this is the same amount of filament that would typically be found on a 1kg reel of ABS. This allows you to print light-weight and exceptionally rigid parts for medical, drones, watercraft, automotive, or any application which would benefit from a light weight, stiff, chemically resistant material.
Benefits of PP+CF Include:
Excellent resistance against a huge variety of chemicals
Low density and weight
Easier to print than most flexible materials and suitable for use with practically any 3D printer
Typically does not absorb moisture, no drying required!
High strength and stiffness
Chemical Resistance of PP+CF
Since properties can change depending on print environment and 3D model geometry and/or surface area, it is always required to do your own testing, but Polypropylene is famous for its chemical resistances to a huge range of environments including:
Acids: Acetic, Boric, Hydrochloric, Phosphoric, Stearic, Sulfuric, Uric
Bases: Hydrocides of Ammonium, Barium, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium
Solvents: Acetone, Ethanol, MEK, Phenol (10%), Water
