CarbonX™ ezPC+CF Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polycarbonate

CarbonX™ ezPC+CF is a high-performance carbon fiber reinforced polycarbonate filament.   This all-new material material is ideal for anyone that desires a structural component with high heat, high stiffness, excellent surface quality, and dimensional stability. ezPC+CF is a clear choice for engineering-grade projects that require excellent performance and ease of printability.


Benefits of CarbonX ezPC+CF Include:

  • High thermal properties, especially when reinforced with carbon fiber
  • Amorphous structure gives it low, near isotropic shrinkage (very low CTE)
  • Further improved stiffness and dimensional stability with the addition of carbon fiber reinforcement
  • Very low odor emitted while printing
  • Wide processing range of 260-280°C (suitable for most desktop printers)
  • Filament Specifications:

    1.75mm and 2.85mm +/- 0.05mm in diameter

    Recommended Print Settings:

    • Extruder: 260-280°C
    • Bed Temp: 80-100°C
    • Nozzle: We currently recommend a hardened steel nozzle with a minimum diameter of 0.4mm.
    • Bed Prep: We use Vision Miner Nano or Northprint's Bed Adhesive
    • Heated Chamber: Recommended
    • Supports: Water soluble AquaTek works great for complex parts.
    • Drying Instructions: 80°C for 4+ hours.
  • Carbon Fiber Reinforced Filament

    What Is It?

    Fibers 5-10 micrometers wide made of carbon. The fibers are aligned following the axis of the material.

    This, along with their physical makeup, are what give this material its excellent properties.

    What Does It Do?

    Carbon Fibers demonstrate a lot of desirable material properties:

    • High stiffness
    • High tensile strength
    • High heat tolerance
    • High chemical resistance
    • Low weight
    • Low thermal expansion

    How Does It Work?

    Reinforcing plastic with carbon fibers produces a 3D printing filament which exhibits the best properties of both the carbon fibers and the plastic of choice.

    What Is It Good For?

    Ideal for any applications which require light weight and rigidity.

    Carbon fiber reinforced parts, designed to use less material and save weight, is extremely popular in aerospace, civil engineering, the military, and motorsports.

    Abrasive Material

    This material is particularly abrasive among 3D printing filaments. We recommend a hardened nozzle, particularly our line of tungsten carbide nozzles!
