Proto-pasta Carbon Fiber PLA is made from top quality PLA and 15% chopped carbon fibers. Prints made with CFPLA are demonstrably more rigid, providing excellent structural strength and layer adhesion with very low warpage. It has a beautiful matte black finish with a slight sheen due to the embedded carbon. Available in 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm diameters. 125g is an un-spooled loose coil. 750 g and 2 kg sizes are on a plastic spool*. 2 kg is "made to order". All material is sealed with desiccant in a plastic bag. NOTE: Carbon Fiber PLA is more abrasive than standard PLA, and can result in accelerated nozzle wear. We recommend using a .5 nozzle size or larger. Read more about nozzle wear and printing with exotics here. In filament form, CFPLA is slightly more brittle than standard PLA, and requires extra care when handling. Processing is comparable to standard PLA. No heated bed required. Due to increased brittleness, process may be less consistent on smaller nozzles and/or bowden type machines.
We offer high-lubricity nozzle upgrades with a hard coating that last much longer than regular brass nozzles when printing abrasive filament.
