PolyMide™ is a family of Nylon/polyamide based filaments. Produced with Polymaker’s Warp-Free™ technology, PolyMide™ filaments deliver engineering properties intrinsic to Nylon and ease of printing.
PolyMide™ PA6-CF is a carbon fiber reinforced PA6 (Nylon 6) filament. The carbon fiber reinforcement provides significantly improved stiffness, strength and heat resistance with outstanding layer adhesion.
We highly recommend to use a wear resistant nozzle, to print with the PolyBox™ and to keep it at dry conditions (relative humidity of 15% or less) at all times to maintain the best printing results.
Excellent Stiffness & Strength - Featuring a tensile modulus of 7.4 GPA on the XY axis and 4.3 GPA on the Z axis, PolyMide™ PA6-CF is well suited for high performance industrial and engineering applications. PolyMide™ PA6-CF combines extreme stiffness and best-in-class tensile strength.
Excellent Heat Resistance - Featuring a heat deflection temperature of up to 215°C, this material lends itself perfectly to functioning automotive applications where strength and heat resistance are required.
Outstanding Layer Adhesion - All other brands of fiber reinforced material show a decrease in z-axis layer adhesion when compared with their non-fiber reinforced Nylons, producing a part that is only stronger on the X-Y axis but detrimental to the Z axis. Polymakers new technology in PolyMide™ PA6-CF not only solves this problem but actually increases Z axis tensile strength creating more isotropic parts that are strong in every direction.
Wear Resistant and Tough - Parts printed in PolyMide™ PA6-CF display excellent toughness and wear resistant properties.
ESD Safe - PolyMide™ PA6-CF is an ESD safe material making it a suitable candidate for printing electronic jigs and fixtures
Improved Printability – Unlike many other Nylon filaments, PolyMide™ PA6-CF is extremely easy to work with, exhibiting excellent dimensional stability. It is compatible with most filament-based 3D printers with no heated bed or chamber required!
Uncompromised Quality - Polymakers leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing ensure reliable printing and consistency across spools and batches.
