Nylon PA12 CBF (Continuous Basalt Fiber) is a 3D printing material that offers a combination of strength and lightweight properties. It is printed using a co-extrusion technology, resulting in a strong and durable print that can be used in high-demand applications. In some cases, it can even replace metals.
- Strength and Lightweight: Nylon PA12 CBF provides a balance of strength and lightweight characteristics, making it suitable for applications where both durability and weight reduction are important. It offers a high strength-to-weight ratio, allowing it to potentially replace metals in certain cases.
- Co-Extrusion Technology: The printing process involves a co-extrusion approach. Smoothed nylon PA12 is used to print the surface perimeter of the part, giving it a smooth texture. Inside the part, nylon PA12 reinforced with continuous basalt fiber is printed as another layer of perimeter and infill, enhancing the overall strength and structural integrity.
- Customizable Perimeter Layers and Infill: The number of perimeter layers, infill pattern, and density can be customized according to the specific requirements of the end part. A standard print typically consists of four plastic perimeter layers followed by two composite perimeter layers. The infill percentage and Isogrid pattern can also be tailored to meet specific needs. You can provide your customization requirements in the production notes, and the provider will accommodate them accordingly.
Nylon PA12 CBF offers a strong and lightweight solution for various applications. With its customizable features, it can be optimized according to the specific requirements of the printed part. The combination of nylon PA12 and continuous basalt fiber reinforcement provides enhanced mechanical properties and the potential to replace metals in certain scenarios.
