Novamid® ID1030 CF10 is a carbon fiber filled PA6/66 copolymer filament for 3D printing durable structural parts with high dimensional stability and no warpage. Despite the low carbon fiber loading of 10% – much lower than most carbon filled materials – Novamid® ID1030 CF10 enables parts that are stronger, stiffer and tougher parts with higher tensile strength and modulus.
Designed especially for 3D printing, the material’s excellent mechanical properties and smooth appearance make it ideal for a very broad range of demanding, structural applications that require robust performance possibly at elevated temperatures. Novamid® ID1030 CF10 can be printed on standard desktop fused filament fabrication (FFF) machines with a hardened nozzle.
Tests have shown that users can run their printers at the same speed as with unreinforced plastics, while achieving considerably better strength and toughness.
