About the CarbonX™ Carbon Fiber PETG 3D Printing Filament

Manufactured in the USA by 3DXTech using premium PETG and High-Modulus Carbon Fiber (not carbon powder or milled carbon fiber).  CarbonX™ CFR is an improved CF reinforced 3D printing filament vs. the competition.  This filament is ideal for anyone that desires a structural component with high modulus, excellent surface quality, dimensional stability, light weight, and ease of printing.  

CarbonX™ CFR PETG is suitable for use in practically any desktop 3D Printer that has a heated bed.  Please note - carbon fiber reinforced filaments are abrasive and can wear out a brass or aluminum nozzle. We recommend our Hercules Hardened A2 Steel Nozzles

Benefits of CarbonX™ CFR-PETG include:

  • Superior Chemical Resistance vs. ABS
  • Amorphous:  Low and near isotropic shrinkage
  • Low moisture absorption:  3X lower vs. ABS
  • Very low odor emitted during printing
  • Wide processing range:  230 - 270°C 

Chemical Resistance:  Unstressed tensile bars molded of PETG exhibit good resistance to dilute aqueous solutions of mineral acids, bases, salts, and soaps, and to aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, and a variety of oils. Halogenated hydrocarbons, short chain length ketones, and aromatic hydrocarbons dissolve or swell the plastic.
