ABS-CF10 (Carbon Fiber)
Stratasys ABS-CF10 combines standard ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) material with 10% chopped carbon fiber by weight.
The result is a low moisture-sensitive FDM® thermoplastic 50% stiffer and 15% stronger than standard ABS 3D printing material.
Typical applications include manufacturing tools, jigs, fixtures and end effectors that benefit from the combination of increased stiffness and reduced weight.
ABS-CF10 is available on the Stratasys F123 series of 3D printers and enhances the flexibility, accuracy, multi material use, and performance, of the F123 series in manufacturing that is unparalleled with any competitor today.
