Carbon Fiber PET filaments
Carbon Fiber PET filaments are made of PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) and carbon fibres. These filaments have a chopped carbon fibre-reinforced structure which makes them superior in impact toughness, strength, and low water uptake. Carbon Fiber PET allows continuous use for 3 hours up to 125°C and continuous use for 10 hours up to 100°C.
Due to its properties, Carbon Fiber PET has many different applications like functional prototypes, mechanical parts, robotics components, drones and UAVs, automotive parts, aerospace components, sports equipment, industrial tooling, electrical enclosures, customized gadgets and accessories.
Because the thickness of fibres is ranging from 0.4mm to 0.6mm, we recommend using an abrasion-resistant 0.6mm nozzle. Carbon Fiber PAHT can be printed without an enclosed printer but we recommend using an enclosure or enclosed 3D printer for better results.

- For the best results, print at 245–270°C.
- Recommended printing table temperature is 80–90°C.
- Use a glass bed, Kapton, or Blue tape for the build platform with Dimafix spray.
- We recommend using at least a 0.6mm abrasion-resistant nozzle.
*Ideal temperature may vary when using different printers.
Additional requirements to work with Carbon Fiber PET filaments:
- Heated print bed
- Hardened nozzle – Due to its abrasive structure, the filament will wear down the standard brass nozzle quickly. You will need a nozzle that won’t clog (0,6mm) and that can withstand higher temperatures.
- Heated filament chamber is optional, but for the best product quality, we recommend keeping your filaments in a dry place at all times
- Closed environment – Ensuring a consistent controlled environment is optional but highly recommended
