MakerBot Nylon 6 Carbon Fiber

Composed of nylon reinforced by carbon fibre, this material is optimised for situations where a high strength to weight ratio is key. It boasts heat deflection of 184°C and tensile strength of 110 MPa, making it an excellent choice for the production of robotic end effectors and other parts that would otherwise be produced using lightweight metal. Exhibiting minimal flex, it is likewise well suited to the production of supports, brackets, and gauges.

MakerBot Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber

As with Nylon 6 Carbon Fibre, this material exhibits good strength to weight ratio, although in this instance, maximum heat deflection is 154°C, and tensile strength runs to 66 MPa. While lower than that of Nylon 6 Carbon Fibre, the tensile strength of Nylon 12 Carbon Fibre is less affected by moisture than Nylon 6, making it better suited to the production of parts for use in damp or wet environments.

Kimya ABS Carbon Fiber

By combining ABS and carbon fibres, Kimya has improved on the rigidity of standard ABS. The result is a material with better tensile modulus and less warpage than ABS-S, which resists shrinkage and complies with the REACH standard. Frequently used to make tools, ABS Carbon Fibre is also a popular choice for use in the production of drones.

Kimya ABS Kevlar

Kevlar, DuPont’s trademarked term for aramid fibre, is widely recognised for its toughness and strength – and, by combining aramid fibres with ABS, Kimya has produced a material that allows finished parts to better withstand abrasion. At the same time, it exhibits less warpage than ABS-S and produces lighter-weight parts than ABS Carbon Fibre. Only available in black.

Kimya PETG Carbon Fiber

Ideal for use in the production of mechanical parts for deployment in paramedical and automotive industries, Kimya PETG Carbon Fibre material has good chemical resistance and durability. It is highly rigid, yet remains easy to use, and complies with both REACH and RoHS Standards. Available only in black.

Lehvoss Luvocom 3F PAHT CF 9891 BK

This carbon fibre-reinforced material is well suited to the production of parts for use in high temperature environments. It is both strong and stiff, and commonly used in transportation industries, for both prototyping and the production of end-use parts. It exhibits low levels of water absorption and is available only in black.

Lehvoss Luvocom 3F PET CF9780 BK

A combination of PET and carbon fibre has resulted in a material able to resist chemical interference, withstand temperatures of up to 125°C in regular use, and remain less prone to water take up. It has high mechanical strength, resulting in finished parts that resist warping in use and are both stiff and very strong. Available in black.

Metals

BASF UF 316L Stainless Steel

Ultrafuse 316L Stainless Steel allows for the on-site production of metal parts with unrivalled strength (561 MPa) and hardness (128 HV10), and an ability to operate in temperatures reaching 550°C. Ultrafuse 316L is a combination of 80% stainless steel and 20% polymer that is up to two times cheaper than most metal powders and imposes a lower barrier to entry through its hardware compatibility. Being filament- rather than powder-based, it is also easier and safer to handle within the production environment.
