Nanovia PP CF : Carbon fiber reinforced

Starting at : 37,50  exl. VAT

Thanks to polypropylene’s close to zero water absorption rate, high chemical resistance, low density, and a native UV, Nanovia PP CF is ideal for light components exposed to the elements which require a high dimensional stability such as nautical equipment and mechanical automotive parts.

Polypropylene is a semi-rigid material, with high wear and shock resistance, notably used for hinges and components that endure regular flexing. The added carbon fibers makes Nanovia PP more rigid and UV resistant. Humidity proof, it’s perfectly suited for outdoor applications, as well for high stress industral pieces.

Much like polyamide (nylon), polypropylene gradually becomes more flexible with higher temperatures. The carbon fiber composition of Nanovia PP CF limit this phenomenon allowing it to be used for parts that require dimensional control in hot and humid environments.

Advantages

  • Very low water absorption rate
  • Good chemical resistance
  • UV resistant
  • Rigid

Application recommendations

Storage

  • Store Nanovia PP CF in a dry and dark location, if possible with a desiccant.
  • In order to guarantee good printing conditions dehydrate Nanovia PP CF at 60 °C for 4 hours or longer. when the spools has been exposed to moisture for an extended period.

Printing

  • Extrusion temperature : 235 – 255 °C
  • Plate temperature : 80 – 100 °C
  • In order to protect your equipment we recommend using a nozzle adapted for abrasive materials.
  • In the case of bed adhesion issues, it’s recommended to either use a “raft” or a polypropylene bed. The latter can be achieved by applying polypropylene film/tape to the printer bed. In order for the film/tape to not unstick, a lower bed temperature is recommended.

Health and safety

Printing

  • We recommend printing Nanovia PP CF in a room equipped with air extraction or by using appropriate breathing equipment.

Post treatment

  • Standard safety equipment during the post treatment of your prints made with Nanovia PP CF is recommended.

Certifications

  • Nanovia PP CF RoHS Certification : Nanovia PP CF RoHS certified

Packaging
