Essentium PA-CF Additive Manufacturing Filament
Categories: Polymer; Rapid Prototyping Polymer; Thermoplastic; Nylon (Polyamide PA)

Material Notes: Essentium PA-CF is a carbon fiber-infused polyamide filament specially formulated for additive manufacturing. Provides exceptional strength, durability, thermal stability and stiffness that is customary of carbon fiber materials. Readily printable with a wide processing window, providing a highly accessible engineering grade solution for open platform and even open-air printers. Mechanical properties of PA may change with water uptake as it is moisture sensitive.

Definitions of axes used in property data table: XY is the print direction. ZX is the build direction. YX is the third orthogonal axis.
