CarbonFil™ is a light-weight and incredibly stiff carbon fibre reinforced filament. Our CarbonFil™ filament is based upon a unique blend of our HDglass™ compound reinforced with 20% ultra-light and relatively long stringer carbon fibres, which has resulted in an exceptionally stiff carbon fibre 3D printer filament.
By making use of ultra-lightweight and relatively long carbon fibre stringers we have managed to make our CarbonFil™ twice as stiff as our HDglass™ compound and yet we still managed to increase its impact strength with more than 10%. Usually an upturn in a material’s stiffness will have a downturn on its impact strength. With CarbonFil™ we managed to increase both these parameters and by that it can truly be called a tough material.
