Is a filament for 3D printing PET-based that incorporates carbon fiber. Thanks to this, we maintain the great qualities of PET and increase its mechanical and thermal properties. Stability and the ease of printing makes this material fantastic to print working pieces with great finish.
- High mechanical and thermal resistance.
- Great chemical resistance.
- Low moisture absorption.
- Good dimensional stability.
- Perfect surface finish.
- TIPS FOR USE AND RECOMMENDATIONS:
PROTECT FROM HUMIDITY
Innovatefil PET FC is not prone to absorb moisture, even so, is delivered in a vacuum bag with a great barrier against moisture so that the filament cannot absorb humidity. Prior to bagging, the filament follows the strictest quality controls by dehumidifying the raw material until the moisture content of less than 0.02%.
Once unpacked, we recommend to keep it in a dry and dark environment.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE USE OF CARBON FIBER
The carbon fiber makes the filament very abrasive so it is necessary to use hardened steel nozzles or similar to print, and thus avoid premature wear of the components.
To achieve a better finish and avoid printing problems, we recommend to use nozzles of 0.6 mm diameter, print layer height of 0.2 mm or greater, not following these recommendations could cause problems of nozzle clogging.
USE A SUITABLE DEVICE FOR PRINTING
This material requires demanding printing conditions, depending on the printer may require an extruder with capacity to reach 270 °C, make sure that your printer has the ability to print it.
KEEP THE EXTRUDER IN GOOD CONDITION
Once printing is finished it is necessary to clean the nozzle eliminating the excess of material to avoid seals and defects in the printing pieces, if several materials are used we recommend to have a nozzle for each material to avoid being mixed.
We recommend the use of SMARTFIL CLEAN for cleaning the extruder
