XT-CXF20 is the first special filament based on the XT filament series.
Reinforced with 20% specially sourced carbon fibers, this filament is perfect for parts which need high stiffness. XT-CF20 has a beautiful matte surface finish when printed.
ColorFabb XT-CF20 is a copolyester based carbon fiber composite material that is based on the unique Amphora 3D polymer from Eastman Chemical and is loaded with no less than 20% specially sourced carbon fibers suitable for 3D Printing. Combining carbon fibers in filaments material is not a new idea, but colorFabb has been able to combine a lot of desired properties into single new material.
- Extreme High Flex Modulus (6.2 GPa) which twice as stiff as PLA - Moderate strain at break (8-10%), so no extreme brittle filament, but toughness - High Glass Temp. (Tg = 80C) - Very high Melt strength - Very high Melt Viscosity - Good dimensional accuracy and stability - Low odour and Styrene Free solution - Easy processing on many platforms
Attention! A special point of attention is the abrasive nature of the carbon fibers. In general these fibers will accelerate the nozzle-wear of brass nozzles, much faster than normal filaments. Therefore, we recommend to use nozzles that are made from stainless steel or hardened copper alloys.
