Carbon Fiber PLA Material

Carbon fiber filaments actually refer to a class of filaments made from different base materials that have tiny carbon fibers infused in them. The base material could be any of the most common filament materials used today: PLA, ABS, PETG, Nylon, and more. Carbon fibers serve to increase the durability of the product printed from the filament in terms of stiffness and tensile strength.

ultimate strength 45 - 48MPa
melting temperature 185-235°C
coefficient of thermal expansion 57.5µm/m-°C
density 1.3g/cm3
Advantages
  • Increased strength and stiffness
  • Very good dimensional stability
  • Lightweight
Disadvantages
  • Increased brittleness of filament
