FDM Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber

Stratasys Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber contains 35% chopped carbon fibres with polyamide 12. Compatible with Fortus production systems, material properties include a high strength-to-weight ratio as well as tensile strength up to scratch with that of other high-performance FDM materials.

Of all FDM materials, Nylon 12CF has the highest specific modulus, and given the material’s unique directional orientation of carbon fibres it contains anisotropic properties allowing for it to be used in a similar manner as that of a composite laminate. This ultimately gives the parts produced using this FDM material a higher uniaxial stiffness compared to injection moulded parts, opening the limits of unique design freedoms that were not accessible when using either traditional thermoplastic or additive manufacturing.

Nylon 12CF’s carbon-fibre filled, lightweight properties allow its use within a variety of applications across a wide set of industries, especially in functional prototyping processes and tooling applications. Industries include:

  • Aerospace: UAV components and tooling
  • Transportation & Automotive: Bumpers, fixtures and brackets
  • Consumer: Performance and sporting goods
  • General Manufacturing: Tooling, Fixtures and other manufacturing aids

FDM Nylon 12CF allows for the production of parts with a layer thickness of 0.010in/0.254mm. The material is compatible for use on the Stratasys Fortus 450mc and 380mc Carbon Fiber 3D printers and can be used alongside SR-110 soluble support.
