High-temperature construction material
Spectrum PA6 CF15 is a black, high-temperature PA6-based construction material modified to achieve better performance. Filling with carbon fibres increases significantly the mechanical strength of the polyamide the material is based on. The filaments specific quality is the moisture absorption reduced by half and the water absorption time is four times lower than that of the pure PA6. Printing does not require a heated chamber and no deformation occurs. The material is compatible with the HIPS and PVOH support materials.
In addition, Spectrum PA6 CF15 features an exceptionally low linear shrinkage (up to 0.1%), a high deformation temperature (240oC) and low thermal expansion coefficient (0.4 10-5/K).
Parts made of Spectrum PA6 CF15 allow for long-term operation at elevated temperatures up to 150°C (20.000h) and up to 180°C for a short time operation (max. 200h).
To attain the very attractive properties of Spectrum PA6 CF15, as regards the technical aspects, you need to follow the basic storage rules for such materials (in a dry and dark place with humidity below 15%). To obtain the best parameters of the printed object possible, it is recommended to dry the material prior to work.
