BASF has developed a new polymer-based filament that opens up new possibilities in the field of demanding 3D printing. PAHT CF15 contains 15% carbon fiber reinforcement, which allows for greater strength and temperature resistance.
Polyamide (also known as nylon) is a thermoplastic material that has a wide range of applications in a variety of industries. In this special composition, the material achieves increased dimensional stability, which remains resistant to permanent stress up to 150 ° C. At temporary loads, the material can withstand even 180 ° C.
The carbon fiber content of 15% ensures strength and rigidity. The material is easy to print and can even be combined with a water-soluble backing material. However, when combining water-soluble backing material with PAHT, make sure that the difference in print temperature between the two materials is as small as possible.
PAHT CF15 wears out the Nozzle. You need a hardened nozzle for a smooth printing process. Ruby Nozzle is recommended.
Make sure you use a minimum layer height of 0.2 mm and a clear glass plate for printing. Hardened nozzle is also required.
