PET-G CARBON Filament
As mentioned, the added carbon fibers make it the PETG carbon filament stronger, but that doesn’t mean the material also increases in weight. On the contrary, the printed parts become lighter. Also, thanks to the carbon filament, prints retain their shape better because the fibers prevent shrinkage during cooling.
PET-G Carbon composition
The carbon fibers can be added to several types of filament. PLA, Nylon and ABS can also be enriched with carbon to increase in strength and stiffness.
The advantages of PET-G Carbon filament
- High strength and lightweight
- Less likely to shrimp when cooling down
- Wide range of applications
- Attractive appearance
The advantages of PET-G Carbon are utilized in any application where the focus is on strength and low weight. It is ideal for remote-controlled vehicles such as drones and cars, and even the automotive industry; but also for functional prototypes with moving parts.
Printing PET-G Carbon Filament
It is important to use special tools when printing with carbon. Printing with carbon filaments gives more chance of clogging and in addition carbon can affect the metal of the nozzle and eventually wear it away.
