Nylon PA12 CCF (Continuous Carbon Fiber) is a 3D printing material that combines the strength and lightweight properties of nylon PA12 with the reinforcement of continuous carbon fiber. This material is printed using a co-extrusion technology, resulting in a strong and durable print that can be used in high-demanding applications.
- Strength and Lightweight: Nylon PA12 CCF 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 replace metals in many cases.
- Co-Extrusion Technology: The printing process involves a co-extrusion approach, where two different materials are simultaneously extruded. Smoothed nylon PA12 is used to print the surface perimeter of the part, providing a smooth and finished texture. Inside the part, nylon PA12 reinforced with continuous carbon 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 the desired specifications. You can communicate your specific requirements in the production notes, and the provider will address them accordingly.
Nylon PA12 CCF offers a versatile solution for applications where strength, lightweight properties, and metal replacement are desired. By combining nylon PA12 with continuous carbon fiber reinforcement, it provides enhanced mechanical properties and can withstand demanding use cases. The ability to customize the perimeter layers and infill allows for further optimization based on the specific needs of the printed part.
