Benefits of CarbonX™ CFR-PETG include:
Superior Chemical Resistance vs. ABS
Amorphous: Low and near isotropic shrinkage
Low moisture absorption: 3X lower vs. ABS
Very low odor emitted during printing
Wide processing range: 230 - 270°C
Chemical Resistance: Unstressed tensile bars molded of PETG exhibit good resistance to dilute aqueous solutions of mineral acids, bases, salts, and soaps, and to aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, and a variety of oils. Halogenated hydrocarbons, short chain length ketones, and aromatic hydrocarbons dissolve or swell the plastic.
*Please note: 2kg and 4kg reels are special order and generally take 2-3 days to ship. XL reel dimensions are 11.75" diameter, 4" wide, 2" arbor.
Recommended Print Conditions:
Extruder: Ideally 230 to 260°C
Platform Temp: 70 to 90°C
Platform Prep: Clean glass w/ Kapton Tape, PVA-based glue, Hairspray
Nozzle: We currently recommend minimum 0.40mm orifice.
Layer Height: Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter. We do not recommend printing layers below 0.2mm with CF Grades.
Carbon fiber filament is more abrasive than unfilled materials, so extended use will result in more wear on your nozzle.
