Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber

FDM Thermoplastic

Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber
Carbon Reinforced.

FDM Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber (Nylon 12CF) combines nylon 12 and chopped carbon fiber to achieve the highest flexural strength and stiffness-to-weight ratio of any FDM material. Nylon 12CF provides a cleaner carbon fiber additive process than SLA with equivalent strength properties.

Lightweight Strength.

FDM Nylon 12CF offers the strength and rigidity to replace metal in certain applications. Replace heavy metal tools with lighter, ergonomic carbon fiber FDM tools. Validate designs faster with carbon fiber functional prototypes instead of costly and time-consuming metal prototypes.
