Description

A PET-G polymer filament which has been enfused with minute carbon fibres (no nozzle clogging with this filament).  Giving you a wonderful lightweight , easy to print, high strength, extremely low warp filament.  Perfect for drones, RC Cars, trucks, tanks, plus many more incredible uses.

FilaPrint Carbon-P is a 20% Carbon Fibre reinforced PET-G based filament.  The result is a twice as stiff filament as our current PET-G with increased impact and heat resistance (HDT) to 80c.  This together with other features such as NO WARP, dimensionally stable, Matte surface and extremely easy to print, make it an ideal filament.

Due to no warping, the FilaPrint Carbon P filament can be printed without a heated platform.  If you do have a heated bed then you can heat to between – 35-60c.  Please also consider using hardened steel nozzles as the carbon fibers will increase the wear and tear on standard brass nozzles.  FilaPrint Carbon-P can be used on the majority of 3D Desktop FDM/FFF/ printers.

Storage
Cool and dry (15-25c) and away from UV light, will enhance shelf life significantly.

       

 

PETG

PET-G

Overview

A versatile middle ground between PLA and ABS.

PET-G Is stronger than PLA but easier to print with than ABS. The glycol in this material makes the filament less brittle and resistant to water, chemicals, and solvents. It is naturally clear, making it the go-to filament for translucent prints. 
The strength and durability of a PET-G filament vary depending on the brand. An easy way to check if one PET-G is stronger than another is by comparing the tensile strength value of each filament. If printed in a sterile, FDA-approved environment, PET-G can be used to create food-safe prints.

Due to its strong and durable nature, PET-G can be difficult to finish with post-processing methods such as sanding. Prints may also be difficult to paint or glue together. Depending on printer and slicer settings, you may experience small hairs over the surface of prints caused by stringing. These can be removed with a heat gun or lighter.

Used for: Water Bottles, Plant Pots.

2 reviews for 3D FilaPrint Carbon Fibre PET-G 1.75mm 500gms

  1. 5 out of 5

    Richard Scullion

    Nice filament

    Compared to regular PETG, this cools very rapidly and produces really nice fine details. It has a slightly grainy, matt finish which I quite like aesthetically but makes it less suitable for mechanical parts. There is a slight sparkle from the included carbon. No smell, no warping. Sticks to blue tape or Kapton tape.

    Peter Waller

    I build small combat robots and normally use Alloy 910 nylon for its impact resistance but it is sometimes a bit to flexible for some structural work. This Carbonfibre PET-G gives a really stiff structure and prints well. Also to not have the need to keep the filament dry and not have to wait for the glass print table to get up to 90 Deg C speeds up the printing process.
