Carbon Fiber Reinforced Zytel® Filament

DuPont Reference: 3D10C20FL BK544

The Carbon Fiber Reinforced Zytel Filament is the newest innovation for the Advanced Polymers team at DuPont.  It works amazingly well if you need parts that are:

  • Super Stiff
    • High modulus (5.7GPa)
    • 3.1x Stiffer than the leading competitor
  • Super Strong
    • High tensile strength (80MPa)
    • 1.2x Stronger than the leading competitor
  • Incredibly Tough
    • Very high Charpy impact strength (38kJ/m^2)
  • Temperature Resistant
    • up to 166C...hot enough for underhood applications
    • 21C higher resistance than the leading competitor
  • Incredible Performance / Value Ratio
    • 44.4% lower cost than leading competitor
  • Super Lightweight
    • 20% carbon fiber = 20% weight savings as compared to Nylon
    • Even more weight savings when replacing metal components!
  • Ready for Industrial Applications
    • Based on the same polymers trusted by engineers around the world every day in demanding applications in automotive, aerospace and machinery industries.

Here are some fun examples of this material in action from the engineering team here at 3DChimera:

Product Description

Zytel® 3D filament with 20% carbon fiber reinforced nylon, black, based on DuPont ultra low shrinkage polymer technology.  Zytel® combines outstanding heat resistance with chemical- and hydrolysis-resistance. Zytel® nylon materials are used by customers across several industries (automotive, electrical, electronics, furniture, sporting goods, oil and gas etc.).

 

** Don't Forget ** Nylon loves to absorb moisture!  When this happens you can get poor layer adhesion, weak parts and even a higher likelihood for a clogged nozzle. For best results, we recommend printing with the 3DC Drybox.
