PA CARBON Filament

Superior thermal, mechanical and chemical resistance, yet easy to print.
Carbon PA (CARBONX PA6+CF GEN 3) is one of the highest mechanical performance 3D printing polymers in the entire industry. It is formulated using a PA6 copolymer reinforced with high-modulus carbon fiber. Thanks to its high tensile strength, it is a material comparable to aluminium and a valuable candidate for metal replacement in high load applications.


PA Carbon is an ideal solution for any application which requires light weight and rigidity. Reinforcing parts with carbon fiber, reducing the use of material and weight, is extremely popular. PA carbon filament is characterized by a high chemical resistance to aromatic hydrocarbons, greases, oils, halogenated hydrocarbons and is therefore widely used in aerospace, civil engineering, military and motorsport.

Filament dryer for perfect quality

PA Carbon is nylon based filament like PA-12. So, it is made using nylon and will absorb more moisture than other filaments when left exposed to the environment. Excessive moisture will result in popping at the nozzle (water boiling off, a little steam) and excessive drooling and nozzle build-up. Fortunately, the dddrop rapid one has a built-in filament dryer that ensures the filament remains of the right quality.
