Product Details

3DXTECH CARBONX PP+CF 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

Abrasive Material

This material is particularly abrasive among 3D printing filaments. Users may find standard brass nozzles are chewed through very quickly compared to standard wear and tear. When worn through, the nozzle diameter will widen inconsistently and the printer will experience extrusion issues.

Because of this, it’s strongly recommended this material be printed through a hardened steel nozzle rather than a softer metal. Hardened steel nozzles can often be inexpensive and easily installed depending on your printer manufacturer’s instructions.

What Is It?

Fibers 5-10 micrometers wide made of carbon. The fibers are aligned following the axis of the material.

This, along with their physical makeup, are what give this material its excellent properties.

What Does It Do?

Carbon Fibers demonstrate a lot of desirable material properties:

  • High stiffness
  • High tensile strength
  • High heat tolerance
  • High chemical resistance
  • Low weight
  • Low thermal expansion

How Does It Work?

Reinforcing plastic with carbon fibers produces a 3D printing filament which exhibits the best properties of both the carbon fibers and the plastic of choice.

What Is It Good For?

Ideal for any applications which require light weight and rigidity.

Carbon fiber reinforced parts, designed to use less material and save weight, is extremely popular in aerospace, civil engineering, the military, and motorsports.

Print Recommendations

Technical Specification

Filament Specifications:

1.75mm and 2.85mm +/- 0.05mm in diameter

Recommended Print Settings:

  • Extruder: 220-250°C
  • Bed Temp: 23-60°C
  • Nozzle: We highly recommend a hardened steel nozzle with a minimum diameter of 0.4mm
  • Other: Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter. We do not recommend printing layers smaller than 0.2mm with carbon fiber reinforced filaments
  • Bed Prep: Magigoo Bed Prep gives us the best results
  • Heated Chamber: Not required
  • Supports: AquaTek™ Water Soluble X1 USM Universal Support Material is one of the few materials capable of properly forming a strong, temporary bond for support. Polypropylene is infamous for being difficult to support, and X1 USM is ideal for the job
  • Drying Instructions: 4+ Hours at 65°C
