Carbon fiber reinforced polipropylene filament ideal for lightweight and rigid parts.

Braskem is a globally renowned market leader in the manufacturing of chemicals and plastics, with a rich range of products for additive manufacturing, including 3D printing filaments carefully engineered for specialized applications. One of the materials from the Braskem catalog is the FL900PP-CF filament, created to maximize printability, dimensional stability and surface finish while minimizing warpage.

FL900PP-CF is a high-strength engineering polipropylene filament reinforced with 100 % recycled carbon fibers for extra strength and durability. The addition of the carbon fibers makes the FL900PP-CF filament approximately 6 times stronger than non-reinforced polipropylene, and the recycled carbon fibers give the same mechanical performance as non-recycled carbon fibers. Furthermore, parts 3D printed with the FL900PP-CF filament demonstrate excellent chemical resistance as well as resistance to impacts in cold weather applications.

FL900PP-CF is very easy to print thanks to its low warpage, and great interlayer and bed adhesion. What makes this material even more user-friendly is that no heated chamber or pre-drying are required to enjoy a smooth 3D printing process and achieve great results. Since it contains recycled carbon fiber, the FL900PP-CF filament is an excellent environmentally friendly alternative to filaments reinforced with non-recycled carbon fiber.

Thanks to its great printability, as well as excellent mechanical and chemical properties, and outstanding behavior in demanding conditions, parts 3D printed with the Braskem FL900PP-CF filament have a wide range of potential applications in the automotive, aerospace, medical and industrial sectors. The FL900PP-CF filament is the perfect material for prototyping and mass customization, especially of parts that require lightweight and rigidity with a certain degree of chemical resistance and dimensional stability in cold environments.

Although the FL900PP-CF filament is resistant to moisture and pre-drying is not required, the spool should be stored properly to avoid potential printing and part quality issues. It is recommended to store the spool in a tightly sealed plastic bag with a desiccant or in an intelligent filament container

This material should be printed at a temperature of 240-260 ºC on a bed heated to 80 ºC. A heated chamber is not required, the best fan speed is 50-100 % and the optimal printing speed is 35-65 mm/s. Due to the abrasive nature of carbon fibers, the manufacturer recommends using an abrasion resistant nozzle (hardened steel, vanadium, ruby tip, etc) with a diameter of at least 0.6 mm
