PolyLite™ PLA-CF is a carbon fiber reinforced PLA filament containing 8% milled carbon fiber by weight; built from the ground up to print stiff models with a high-quality matte surface finish. PolyLite PLA-CF combines stiffness and excellent dimensional stability with a smooth-looking matte surface finish that hides the layers.

Carbon-fiber reinforced filaments are more abrasive to the driving gear and nozzle than regular PLA, for optimal printing results we highly recommend using hardened steel nozzles.

FEATURES

 

  • Matte Surface Finish - PolyLite™ PLA-CF contains 8% carbon fiber by weight rendering parts with a smooth matte carbon-fiber surface finish which is very desirable among hobbyists and designers. Carbon fiber filaments for engineering applications have an excellent finish for aesthetic models but are; typically cost-prohibitive for artistic applications, display a grainier surface finish depending on CF content, and in the case of CF Nylon are more susceptible to absorbing moisture. PolyLite™ PLA-CF is an ideal choice for applications that require an easy-to-use and cost-effective filament with a smooth-looking carbon fiber surface finish that hides the layers. 
  • Mechanical Properties - PolyLite™ PLA-CF offers a balance of high stiffness, good strength and improved toughness for projects requiring a balance of aesthetics and function. The base material of PolyLite™ PLA-CF is Polymakers eco-friendly Matte PLA (PolyTerra™ PLA) formula which displays lower stiffness and strength but better impact resistance (X-Y) than regular PLA / PolyLite™ PLA. The combination of this Matte PLA formula and milled carbon fiber results in a high-quality PLA-CF material with similar youngs modulus (stiffness) and better toughness than PolyLite™ PLA, and better tensile strength (X-Y) than the base PLA material, PolyTerra™ PLA.
  • Easy to Print - A high-quality PLA with carbon fiber, PolyLite™ PLA-CF features excellent dimensional accuracy and is manufactured with Polymakers  Jam-Free™ technology which leads to excellent printing quality with zero risk of nozzle jams caused by heat creep [2]. PolyLite™ PLA-CF works well on most printing surfaces with a 25°C - 60°C bed and a thin layer of glue stick applied.
  • Uncompromised Quality - PolyLite™ PLA-CF filament is made with the highest quality ingredients including Ingeo® from Natureworks. Natureworks is a world-leading biopolymers supplier based in the USA with a portfolio of high-quality raw PLA materials produced from rapidly renewable plant resources. Combining Polymaker's innovative R&D technologies, compounding, and extrusion systems with Natureworks Ingeo® resins produces a reliable 3D printing filament to print beautiful and accurate models
