ColorFabb's first special filament based on the Amphora 3D polymer. Reinforced with 20% specially sourced carbon fibers, this filament is perfect for parts which need high stiffness. XT-CF20 has a beautiful matte surface finish when printed.
CARBON FIBER IS ABRASIVE:
A special point of attention is the abrasive nature of the carbon fibers. In general these fibers will accelerate the nozzle-wear of brass nozzles much faster than standard filaments. Therefore, we recommend pairing XT-CF20 with the Olsson ruby nozzle.
Reasons to choose XT-CF20
Extremely high flex modulus (6.2 GPa), twice as stiff as PLA/PHA
Moderate strain at break (8-10%), resulting in toughness without being brittle
High glass-transition temperature (Tg = 80C)
Very high melt strength and viscosity
Good dimensional accuracy and stability
Low odor / Styrene Free solution
Easy processing on many platforms
