Note: To use PAHT CF15 filament you will have to install the hotend X. Printing PAHT CF15 and PP GF30 with a standard nozzle will seriously damage the hotend.

PAHT CF15 (High Temperature Polyamide carbon fiber reinforced) combines high temperature and chemical resistance with extreme mechanical properties.

It allows to work under 150ºC continuous temperatures with the peak temperature of 180ºC in comparison to a standard PA. 15% carbon fiber reinforcement makes it stiffer thus open new fields for the printing of demanding applications.

Properties:

- Wear resistant

- Stiff material 

- Carbon fiber composite

Note:  BCN3D Lab develops specific configurations for each material and printer. Make sure to use the last BCN3D Stratos version.

 

Build plate adhesion:

PAHT CF15 has almost no warping. It is not necessary to use Magigoo when printing that filament, you will get optimal results using a clean printing surface.

 

Recomendations:

Plastics absorb moisture from the air. For long periods of time without printing, it is
recommended to keep the PAHT CF15 spools in a box or airtight container with desiccant to keep them dry.

Filament Storage

PAHT CF15 emits low levels of fumes and particles when printed. We recommend printing it in a well-ventilated area to ensure a healthy environment.
