Description


Fillamentum Nylon CF15 is a Nylon based carbon fibres reinforced material for the FFF (also known as FDM) 3D printing technology. 

It is characterized not only by high strength and high thermal or chemical resistance, but also better processing stability and rheological properties.
The material has excellent impact resistance also with low temperatures.
Typical is also low thermal expansion. This material is suitable for printing of frequently stressed parts, for example bearings etc.

Note: Nylon CF15 has abrasive properties. It means that it will accelerate the nozzle-wear of brass nozzles faster than unfilled filaments. The hardened steel nozzles are recommended.

Nylon

Overview

Highly durable, flexible material.

Nylon has high impact and abrasion resistance; offering a high amount of tensile strength whilst also being a flexible material. It is one of the most heat-stable filaments, remaining unchanged in high temperature environments. 

It is hygroscopic, meaning that the filament will absorb moisture easily which will cause prints to warp and fail. This can be circumvented by keeping the filament in an air-tight, dry environment. Nylon can warp easily; depending on the printer and slicer used, some trial and error may be needed to prevent this. Printed items will degrade from UV radiation if left in sunlight for long periods of time.

Used for: Gears, Screws, and Cable ties.

Some manufacturers provide PA6 & PA12 Nylons, PA12 has increased moisture stability and is more resistant to moisture absorption. The same applies to Nylon 66 compared to Nylon 6.

    I build small combat robots normally using Alloy910 nylon but find that for some structural uses this has too much flex.
    The CF15 gives much better stiffness while still providing both strength and ease of printing using 260 C head 80 C glass bed with Elmers glue stick.
    In the few days I have had the material I have printed around 15 parts and have yet to have a failure.
