PA12 CF+

A filament for end-use and functional applications

Raise3D Industrial PA12 CF+ is a carbon fiber-reinforced composite filament based on Polyamide 612 (PA612, Nylon 612). PA612 inherits the best characteristics of both PA6 and PA12, such as toughness and reduced water absorption. By adding 15 wt.% short carbon fibers with optimized length distribution, mechanical, thermal properties and even surface quality of printed parts are all enhanced.

Compared with Raise3D Industrial PA12 CF, it exhibits higher strength-to-weight ratio, better interlayer bonding quality (Z-direction strength) and better dimensional stability. After annealing, thermal and mechanical properties are improved further. PA12 CF+ is an optimal choice for lightweight and strong end-use applications, such as jigs, fixtures, and many other functional parts in the fields of manufacturing, automotive, and aerospace.

  • Superior interlayer bonding strength
  • Stiff and strong
  • High strength-to-weight ratio
  • Lower shrinkage ratio
  • Heat and wear resistant
  • Chemical resistant



Printer: Raise3D E2CF/ Raise3D RMF500

Filament: Raise3D Industrial PA12 CF Support Filament/ Raise3D Premium PVA+ 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.

Printing Notifications:

  • Dry PA12 CF+ at 80°C for 12 hours before printing, as having low moisture content is crucial for the quality of the final printed part.
  • Store PA12 CF+ filament inside Raise3D Filament Dry Box during printing to ensure the filament keeps its properties.
  • Brass nozzles are subject to significant abrasion when printing with PA12 CF+. Using an abrasion-resistant nozzle, such as hardened steel and ruby nozzle, is highly recommended.
  • After printing, it is recommended to anneal the model with support structure in the oven at 80-100°C for 8-12 hours.
  • For a small size model (side length <50 mm), annealing at 80°C for 8 hours is recommended; For a medium-size model (50mm<side length <150 mm), annealing at 80°C for 12 hours is recommended; For a large size model, 100°C for at least 12 hours is recommended.
  • PA12 CF+ can be used as self-supporting material on a model. Please remove the support structure after annealing.
