PA12 CF

A filament for end-use and functional applications

PA12 CF is a Nylon Polyamide 12 (PA12)-based 3D printing filament, reinforced with Carbon Fiber. Carbon fiber enhances Nylon’s stiffness, strength, rigidity, shrink ratio, and surface quality, as well as improving chemical and thermal resistance.

  • Outstanding stiffness and strength
  • Excellent heat resistance
  • High hardness
  • Less warp and water uptake

Compatibility: PA12 CF support filament

Please note, carbon fiber reinforced filament is abrasive and can wear out brass nozzles quickly. It is suggested to print carbon fiber filament with hardened nozzle.
