FDM Nylon-CF10 (Carbon Fiber)
FDM® Nylon-CF10 is a strong carbon fiber-filled material that is stiff and chemically resistant. Available on the Stratasys F190™CR and F370®CR 3D printers.
Typical applications include Metal forming dies, Press brakes, End effectors, Soft jaws, Alignment and assembly fixtures, Clamping tools, and Drill guides.
FDM® Nylon-CF10 is a composite material combining a blended nylon polymer with 10% chopped carbon fiber (by weight), enhancing the material’s strength and rigidity.
