• A carbon-filled thermoplastic with structural characteristics that make it one of the strongest thermoplastics in the FDM material range
  • An ideal substitute for metal components where light weight and strength is paramount 
  • Chopped carbon fibre comprises 35% of the weight, blended with Nylon 12 polymer, which results in the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio and flexural strength. 
  • Particularly useful for strong but lightweight tooling applications and functional prototypes in the aerospace, automotive, industrial and recreational manufacturing industries.

Layer thickness

  • 0.2540mm


  • Black

Support material

  • Soluble – complex components with deep internal cavities are possible

Minimum reproducible dimensions

  • 1.0 mm

Texture / feel

  • Due to the extrusion process of FDM printing the layers are easily visible resulting in a stepped surface finish. A wood grain pattern can appear on curved surfaces

Other FDM Materials

  • Tablet case made using electrostatic dissipative thermoplastic


    Durable and electrostatic-dissipative thermoplastic
  • Envelope feeding aid used in commercial printing


    Stronger than standard FDM ABS material
  • Educational model used by Alzheimer’s Research UK


    Outstanding UV stability and mechanical properties
  • Full-scale vehicle grill – spare part

    NYLON 12

    Primarily used in 3D aerospace, automotive and consumer goods industries
