What is Carbonyte?

Carbonyte is a Carbon Nylon blended filament.

Carbon fibre is a seriously strong and low density material, it’s only done justice in a composite with a copolymer that has qualities to perfectly compliment carbon. While carbon is stiff and light, Nylon 12’s properties are that it’s the most durable (and in our eyes, generally superior) 3d printing material available.

Combined with it’s low friction coefficient, low density and high resistance to heat and chemicals – Nylon 12 was the perfect accompaniment to create this performance filament.

The result?

An uncompromised blend of Carbon Nylon (or PA-CF for short) that knows no competition. This blend offers the outright highest strength of any FDM printing filament we’re currently aware of (please let us know if you find stronger). While boasting incredible stiffness combined with a reassuring level of subtle durability and excellent layer adhesion – your parts won’t fracture or snap under excessive loads.

All while keeping the density lower than weaker filaments.  

Currently there are a few varieties of Carbon Fibre reinforced filaments available. Most are blended with more traditional materials (like PLA or ABS) that you’re familiar with. We’ve taken a different approach.

You see, it’s not just a case of adding carbon to an existing material to instantly improve it. You’ve got to ensure the properties of the host plastic actually compliment that of carbon. Otherwise you end up with something very brittle, crumbly or otherwise no discernible improved qualities over the original non-carbon filament.

Our mission with this material was to create the highest performance 3D printer filament currently available. This means the best of all the traits you need in a high performance filament, while still getting excellent printing reliability and finish quality.

This material is not intended for printing desktop trinkets and at this price – we think you’re aware of that. Unfortunately getting all the variables right of these high-end materials to print perfectly is painstaking work – the price has to reflect this. We understand our Nylon Carbon Fibre Filament isn’t for everyone.

If you need the best filament currently available, with no compromise – then look no further and order a KG or a sample today.
