CarbonX™ PA12+CF is made using a speciality Nylon 12 [PA12] and high-modulus carbon fibre. This material offers an excellent combination of performance and printability. PA12 absorbs much less moisture than PA6-based materials and has superior retention of mechanical properties after exposure to humid environments.
Benefits of PA12+CF Includes:
High thermal properties, with a CUT of 120°C and HDT of 150°C
Excellent strength and stiffness over a wide temperature range, up to 150°C
Very low moisture absorption yielding improved retention of mechanical properties even when exposed to humid environments
Low density makes it ideal for light-weight parts
Superior chemical resistance, especially when compared to PA6 nylons
Low shrinkage and warping for high dimensional stability and reproducible part-to-part measurements
