Matter3D’s Performance Amide (Nylon) 6,6 Carbon Fiber is an engineering-grade material that is manufactured from a Matter3D proprietary formulation in Victoria, BC. Amide 6,6 Carbon Fiber is an amazing, reinforced nylon filament. By adding micro-carbon fibers to nylon, you get a tough filament capable of printing parts with stiffness, impact resistance, and high tensile strength. Performance Amide 6,6 Carbon Fiber is an engineering grade filament, ready for hobbyists and advanced users alike, which gives you the durability of nylon combined with the stiffness of carbon fiber.
The best part of Amide 6,6 Carbon Fiber is that the carbon fiber adds stability and rigidity, so parts are much less likely to warp than with standard nylon. This means that printing with Amide 6,6 Carbon Fiber is actually easier than printing with traditional nylon while providing parts that are durable and stiff from the carbon fiber. Additionally, less warping means you can enjoy more accurate printed parts with fewer failed prints.
Matter3D's Nylon 6,6 - series of filaments are great for 3d printed parts that require strength and durability. The performance series nylon is a versatile material that is characteristically flexible but also exceptionally tough, making it prefect for impact-resistant parts that require shock absorption.
Engineers, designers, and manufacturers turn to the Performance Amide series of filaments for their mechanical stability, low coefficient of friction, and natural chemical resistance. Compared to other Nylon materials, Matter3D’s Performance Amides offer the tuned properties for easier 3d printing without sacrificing aesthetics, quality, compatibility, reliability, or part-performance.
Any parts made with Matter3D’s Performance Amide can be heat treated (annealed) to improve the material's physical properties. To anneal a printed part, heat the part at 80 – 130 °C for up to 30 minutes by either submerging in hot water or by baking in an oven.
Like all nylons, Performance Amide 6,6 Carbon Fiber must be kept dry! If it does not remain packaged with desiccant, it will readily absorb moisture from the air; this will lead to degraded print quality and wasted filament. You can dry it out by baking it in an oven at 85°C for 4-6 hours. This product is available in 1 kg spools (2.2 lbs) and can also be ordered on a 1kg Master Spool. Matter3D always recommends drying your filaments before use.
This filament is ideal for use with practically all desktop 3D printers, such as Makerbot, Prusa, Ender, Flashforge, Anet, Creality, Lulzbot, Makergear, Ultimaker, or any other printer accepting 1.75 mm or 2.85 mm filament.
