PPA CF

A high-performance composite filament for end-use applications

Raise3D Industrial PPA CF Filament is carbon fiber reinforced composite filament material based on PPA (polyphthalamide or high-performance/high-temperature Nylon). Thanks to its high performance Nylon matrix, this composite filament has superior mechanical and thermal properties than other Nylon filaments. With well controlled dispersion and length-distribution of chopped carbon fibers (15 wt.%), the PPA CF has lower density, lower moisture absorption, high strength and rigidity, high wear and creep resistance, excellent chemical and heat resistance.  It is promising for end-use applications in automotive, aerospace, electrical and electronics (E&E) industry.

  • High rigidity and strength
  • Better thermal performance
  • Lower moisture absorption
  • Dimensional stability
  • Chemical resistance
  • High strength-to-weight ratio

Compatibility: Raises3D Industrial PPA Support Filament

Printing Notifications:

  • Abrasion of the brass nozzle happens frequently when printing PPA CF. Using abrasion resistance nozzle, as hardened steel and above grade nozzle is highly recommended.
  • After the printing, it is recommended to anneal the model with support material in the oven at 80-100°C for 8 to 12 hours to improve mechanical property and dimensional accuracy.
