Lightweight Strength, Carbon-Fiber Reinforced

Carbon fiber-reinforced FDM Nylon 12CF has the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio of any FDM thermoplastic, making it suitable for demanding functional testing. The combination of high strength, stiffness and light weight allow it to replace metal components, for lighter tools and select end-use parts.
