What is Novamid CF?
Novamid ® ID1030 CF10 is a carbon fiber-filled polyamide 6/66. The PA6/66 copolymer filament incorporates actual carbon fibers, rather than the commonly used powder-like carbon, which results in stronger, stiffer and tougher parts with higher tensile strength and modulus.
Novamid CF Composition
Printing with Novamid CF leads to extreme fiber orientation in the flow direction, creating anisotropic mechanical properties. This can be used to create directional strength in areas of components, where needed. The fiber has an average length of around 0.2 mm, with the distribution curve extending to over 1 mm.
Novamid CF Properties
Novamid CF is a material that is strong, stiff and tough. Models printed with this material are durable with a high dimensional stability, and if used with proper adhesive, Novamid CF is warpage free. Novamid CF is also lightweight and can withstand large amounts of stress and pressure.
Novamid CF Application
Novamid CF is suitable for demanding structural models that require robust performance at elevated temperatures. It is used in many different applications, such as automotive parts, protective and support gear, medical applications like braces and prosthetics, and other applications that require strength and lightweight.
