Prima SELECT Carbon is the latest generation of high performance material for your 3D Printer. Our Prima SELECT Carbon is based on PETG and is reinforced with 20% carbon fibres. This makes for an extremely tough filament that is perfect for printed parts that can be used in the automotive industry, drones and RC parts.
Prima SELECT Carbon is a very useful material that has very unique properties. Mixed with small, chopped carbon fibre strands, Prima SELECT Carbon filament offers incredible rigidity, structure, and great interlayer adhesion. Due to the fact that there´s a very low risk of warping, Prima SELECT Carbon is very easy to print with and has a matt surface when done. The finished prints are very stiff and rigid and are very useful if you need an object with high stiffness to weight ratio. Prima SELECT Carbon doesn´t require a heated bed, but if you have one, set it to 35-60˚C to get a really good first layer adhesion.
Due to the abrasive nature of Prima SELECT Carbon we recommend that you use a hardened steel nozzle for this filament. Using a regular brass nozzle isn´t a problem but it will wear out the nozzle in a short time.
Prima SELECT Carbon sticks on BuildTak, Glass coated with adhesive spray or glue stick, painters tape coated with hairspray and has been used successfully with glue stick, 3DLac, DimaFix and Magigoo.
Prima SELECT Carbon is reeled on a transparent spool with 500 g of high quality filament. It´s packed in a sturdy box and packed with silica gel to avoid moister.
Prima SELECT Carbon sticks on BuildTak or glass plate coated with adhesive spray or glue stick.
Prima SELECT Carbon are available in diameter sizes of 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm.
Our state of the art factory is equipped with the latest in laser measuring technology to ensure that you will receive a spool of filament with a very tight diameter and roundness tolerance. This in turn makes for a filament that is compatible with most common printers on the market today.
