ColorFabb XT-CF20 filament

  • $ 54.95


   ColorFabb XT-CF20 is a copolyester based carbon fiber composite material that is based on the unique Amphora 3D polymer from Eastman Chemical and is loaded with no less than 20% specially sourced carbon fibers suitable for 3D Printing.
Combining carbon fibers in filaments material is not a new idea, but colorFabb has been able to combine a lot of desired properties into 1 new material :


- Extreme High Flex Modulus (6.2 GPa) / twice as stiff as PLA
- Moderate strain at break (8-10%), so no extreme brittle filament, but toughness
- High Glass Temp. (Tg = 80C)
- Very high Melt strength
- Very high Melt Viscosity
- Good dimensional accuracy and stability
- Low odor / Styrene Free solution
- Easy processing on many platforms
- Highly attractive matt black surface



CARBON FIBER IS ABRASIVE

A special point of attention is the abrasive nature of the carbon fibers. In general these fibers will accelerate the nozzle-wear of brass nozzles, much faster than unfilled filaments. There colorFabb recommends to use nozzle’s from Stainless steel or hardened copper alloys.

APPLICATIONS :
Just think of all the great applications for a variety industries, that now will have a material that performs according to expectations. Functionality, stiffness, dimensional stability, heat resistant, what more can you ask? Applications in the RC Industry / Drones / Aerospace / Automotive / Prototyping and many more can now be developed on your desktop 3D Printer.

AMPHORA 3D POLYMER

ColorFabb XT-CF20 is produced wih AMPHORA 3D Polymer from Eastman Chemical.

In addition to the unique properties of the material, this filament is made to extremely high quality standards. Diameter is maintained at 1.75mm +/- 0.05mm with many operators reporting no measurable variation in diameter.

Each spool contains a minimum of 700g filament neatly wound onto a large diameter spool.

 

Specifications

Advised 3D printing temperature:
240-260C

Advised 3D print speed:
40 - 70 mm/s

Advised Heated bed

Build platform
For ColorFabb_XT we advice to print on a heated bed. After printing, the build plate needs to cool down to about 20-30 C at which point you can remove the printed part.
