The addition of the carbon fibers to PC improves its strength, toughness, and temperature resistance.
Carbon Fiber Polycarbonate is a composite material that combines the properties of polycarbonate (PC) with the strength and stiffness of carbon fiber. It is known for its excellent resistance to UV light and common chemicals. Carbon Fiber Polycarbonate is slightly lighter than standard PC, making it favorable for applications where weight reduction is desired.
This material is particularly suitable for 3D printing mechanical parts and components that are subjected to high temperatures and stress. It offers a high heat resistance, with the ability to withstand temperatures over 100 °C. Carbon Fiber Polycarbonate is commonly used in the production of gears, machine parts, and other applications that require both strength and durability.
With a tensile strength of 70 MPa and a tensile modulus of 6200 MPa, Carbon Fiber Polycarbonate exhibits superior mechanical properties. It has a low tensile elongation of 2%, indicating its high rigidity. The flexural strength of 90 MPa and the flexural modulus of 5890 MPa further contribute to its structural integrity.
Overall, Carbon Fiber Polycarbonate is a versatile material that combines the benefits of polycarbonate with the enhanced strength and stiffness provided by carbon fiber. Its unique properties make it a desirable choice for various applications that demand a balance of strength, durability, and heat resistance.
