Now available via our resellers; the new prime filament of BASF Innofil3D PAHT CF 15 & PET CF15 & PP GF30

PAHT CF15

Polyamide is a thermoplastic that is used in wide range applications in different industries. PAHT CF15 has a special formulation, which brings more dimensional stability and allows to work under 150°C continuous temperatures with a peak temperature of 180°C, whihc is impossible with standard PA. Thanks to the reinforcement with  15% carbon fiber stiffer products can be printed, which opens new doors for the printing of demanding applications.

Key properties:

  • Higher chemical resistance than most PA grades
  • High temperature resistance up to 150°C
  • Strong and stiff parts
  • High dimensional stability
  • Easy to process
  • Low moisture absorption

PAHT CF15 combines high temperature and chemical resistance with extreme mechanical properties. Due to the high dimensional stability there will be hardly any shrinkage during printing. This ensures an easy print experience.

PET CF15

PET CF15 is a polyethylene terephthalate reinforced with 15% carbon fiber. PET CF15 is easier to process than other carbon fiber reinforced filaments in our portfolio.

Users of PET CF15 will be able create 3D printed objects that can withstand higher mechanical and thermal conditions than with normal PET filament. With this engineering filament new 3D printing applications with higher requirements can be developed.

With its heat resistance, high strength and stiffness, it is a filament for wide range of industrial applications. Its high dimensional stability and very low moisture uptake makes it a perfect solution for applications that work in humid environment. Key properties:

  • Strong and stiff parts
  • Easy to process
  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Heat resistant up to 100°C
  • High dimensional stability
  • Compatible with HIPS for breakaway support
  • Excellent surface finish

PET CF15 combines easy processability, very low moisture uptake with high level of strength and stiffness at an affordable cost.

PP GF30

Polypropylene is one of the most preferred thermoplastic in different industries, especially in automotive sector. However, high level of reinforcement was always a problem in filament making, untill now. PP GF30 contains special glass fibers that are designed for filament making and 3D printing. This will ensure the printed objects are functionally working, under certain temperature and mechanical loads.

Thanks to its UV-resistance, it is more suitable than any other PP based filament for applications that are directly exposed to sun light. PP GF30 combines great features that couldn’t be combined before: printing stiffer parts with UV resistance is now possible.

Key properties:

  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Low density
  • Low moisture uptake
  • High heat resistance
  • Improved UV-resistance

PP GF30 is ideal when extreme stiffness is required in humid environments.
