PA-CF stands for polyamide reinforced with carbon fiber. This filament is ideal for anyone that desires a structural component with high modulus, improved chemical and thermal resistance, excellent surface quality, and ease of printing.
The most common issue with 3d print of nylon is it’s warping. But because of its features, it was worth to reinforce it. The carbon fibers were the answer. Excellent dimensional stability comes from the connection of carbon fiber and nylon. But in general, these fibers will accelerate the nozzle-wear of brass nozzles, much faster than unfilled filaments.
The PA-CF filament doesn’t need a high temperature to be well printed, but it does require a wear-resistant nozzle. The troubles cause carbon fiber, which occurs to be abrasive […]
