ABS-CF10 (Carbon Fiber)

Production-grade Thermoplastic

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.

The benefits of ABS with the stiffness of carbon fiber.

Significantly reduce your tooling lead time by 3D printing them with Stratasys ABS-CF10 instead of machining.

Depending on the application, carbon-reinforced ABS can replace metal for lighter, more ergonomic tooling. Combined with soluble support, Stratasys ABS-CF10 can achieve complex geometries that aren’t possible with machining.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology

Advantages of 3D printing ABS-CF10 with a Stratasys FDM Machine

Tough long-lasting parts

FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology. ABS-CF10 parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.

Meet production demands

FDM systems are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce. Advanced FDM 3D Printers boast the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, delivering longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing systems, delivering high throughput, duty cycles and utilization rates.

Gain new possibilities

FDM 3D Printers streamline processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way. Industries can cut lead times and costs, products turn out better and get to market faster.
