Carbon Fiber ABS

Category: ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

Material Information

Name: Carbon Fiber ABS
Source: Airwolf 3D
Description:

Our carbon fiber ABS is a composite material that offers the stability and strength of ABS, but with added lightweight strength and a lower tendency to warp. The material is highly printable with finished parts that are rugged, yet refined — and the material offers the same post-processing options as regular ABS. Whether you need to fully customize the appearance of your print or desire a shinier finish, ABS CF can be sanded, primed, painted or finished with an acetone vapor treatment. While ABS CF responds beautifully to post-processing techniques, its unique appearance looks beautiful on its own. The carbon fiber ABS filament prints in a deep shade of graphite with an exceptionally even, semimatte finish.

    General Comments

    Characteristics

    • High stiffness
    • High tensile strength
    • High heat tolerance
    • High chemical resistance
    • Low weight
    • Low thermal expansion
    • Parts can be smoothed with acetone vapors
    • Higher melting point than PLA or PETG

    Applications

    • 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.

    Considerations

    • We currently recommend a hardened steel nozzle with a minimum diameter of 0.4mm.
    • Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter. We do not recommend printing layers smaller than 0.2mm with carbon fiber reinforced filaments.

    Printing Skill & Experience - Advanced

    • Use enclosed chamber to avoid part warp.
    • Dry material before printing.
    • ABS fumes are harmful, always ensure the HEPA filter is ON.
