PolyMide™ PA6-CF is a carbon fiber reinforced PA6 (Nylon 6) filament.
The carbon fiber reinforcement provides significantly improved stiffness, strength and heat resistance with outstanding layer adhesion.
Nylon filament, although highly tensile and resistant to abrasion, has often been overlooked in FFF/FDM 3D printing. This is because of relatively poor dimensional stability (i.e. the degree to which it retains its original dimensions under heat and humidity changes) and tendency to warp when extruded.
PolyMaker’s Warp-Free ™ technology addresses these issues by chemically controlling the microstructure and crystallization behavior of the filament when it is manufactured. As a result, all internal stress built up during 3D printing is fully released prior to solidification.
Additionally, the improved printability is achieved without sacrificing the intrinsic properties of nylon.
Recommended print settings:
- Nozzle temperature: 280 - 300 ° C.
- Heating bed temperature: 25 - 50 ° C (do not exceed 50 ° C)
- Installation space temperature: 25 - 50 ° C (do not exceed 50 ° C)
- Printing speed: 60 mm / s.
- Fan: OFF.
PA6-CF is an abrasive filament.
We therefore recommend the use of hardened nozzles with a bore of > 0.5 mm ..
