Nylon+ Carbon Fiber Filament 1.75mm 1kg/2.2lb, Black
The Nylon Filament Blended with Carbon Fiber is an incredibly strong and durable material, which is very suitable for printing functional parts such as gears or engineer design prototypes.
- We use new formula to improve its rigidity and print performance: 75% nylon coupled with 25% carbon fiber.
- It features with lower shrink rate, higher strength and rigidity, less warpage and more resistant to wear and tear comparing to the traditional nylon filament.
- It is suitable for those looking to make both strong and flexible industrial parts, prosthetics, medical equipment and complex costumes etc.
- Due to its unique attribute of abrasiveness, we recommend to use a 0.6mm or larger stainless steel nozzle instead of regular soft metal nozzles.
The Nylon Filament Blended with Carbon Fiber is a new material for the 3D printing users. Compared to traditional nylon, this new material has higher abrasion resistance but lower compression. It is widely used to print high quality funts and medical applications.

WHAT'S IN THE PACKAGE
1x Carbon Fiber Nylon 3D Printing Filament
Love how well this prints and looks. It's light and when thin is nice and flexible while thicker parts are nice and stiff. Doesn't blob as much as other carbon filled filaments I've used.
I am overall very pleased with the strength/quality of this filament so far. I did have difficulty getting it to adhere to a glass bed, so I opted to use my garolite build surface rather and its been sticking wonderfully since. This filament is mostly nylon, so it is highly suggested if not necessary to keep this in filament dry box or some sort of humidity controlled environment. If you don't, you run the risk of the filament absorbing moisture and causing all sorts problems with your prints. I used 240c/80c for my hotend and bed and that seemed to be perfect for me. Though, most of my parts do have a relatively small build surface footprint, so I can't speak for what temperatures would be optimal for larger prints. Cooling fan was off for all prints as well. While a hardened steel or other similar nozzles are recommended for printing with carbon fiber, I have been using a brass .6mm nozzle I ordered in a pack and it has been printing fine so far. A majority of my prints for customers are meant for functional use so aesthetics aren't quite as important. But this stuff printed just as "prettily" as any other PETG that I've ever used, if not better. It also has a matte finish, so layer lines and vibration artifacts are very difficult (if not impossible) to see. I will definitely consider purchasing this again in the future for prints that require high durability and rigidity.
Very good results -- seems to be stiffer and lighter than most other nylon carbon fiber filaments and still very strong and durable. Using 2mm nozzle with a temperature of about 260 degrees C, line width 2mm. Heat bed about 55 degrees and no warping.
I won’t use any other Carbon Nylon besides this stuff! I’ve tested it in acid and strength and it blows away the others. I print it at 155 Degrees!
Site said it'll take about 20 days to ship and they weren't kidding. Funny I got an email to do a review before I got my filament.
We did test on this stuff and to us it’s a perfect mix of Nylon and Carbon.
I bought this filament and have done some printing with it. Of note, I printed a temperature tower using a 0.4mm nozzle and 0.15mm layer height. Things turned out very well. To see my results, check out my review on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOuaLIgyvFw I need to print some strength tests, and will update when those are complete.
