Novamid® ID1030 CF10 can 3D-print high-performance and durable structural end-use parts, making 3D printing technology a viable option for demanding automotive structural applications that require robust performance at elevated temperatures. With a carbon fiber loading of just 10%, Novamid® ID1030 CF10 prints parts with properties close to what is usually achievable only by injection molding.

Novamid® ID1030 CF10 is a new carbon fiber filled polyamide 6/66 that prints durable structural parts with high dimensional stability, warpage free. The PA6/66 copolymer filament incorporates actual carbon fibers, rather than the commonly used powder-like carbon, which results in stronger, stiffer and tougher parts with higher tensile strength and modulus. 
 

Possible applications

  • Automotive under-the-hood applications

  • Protective and supporting sports gear

  • High performance functional parts

  • Manufacturing jigs and fixtures

  • Medical braces and prosthetics

  • Light weight applications

  • Applications requiring durable and stiff parts with good mechanical properties

 

General printing guidelines *

 

Nozzle size: ≥ 0.5mm Layer height: ≥ 0.1mm * Flow rate: ± 100%
Print temp: ± 260 - 285° C * Print speed: Medium / High * Retraction: Depends
Heat bed: ± 60 - 120° C * Fan speed: 0% Printing surface: PEI Sheet + DimaFix
Enclosed printer needed: Yes Heated Build Chamber: Preferred / Yes Experience level: Intermediate

*) Above displayed settings are meant as guidance to find your optimal print settings. These ranges in settings should work for most printers, but please do feel free to experiment outside these ranges if you think it is suitable for your printer. There are a lot of different type of printers, hot-ends and printer offsets that it is extremely difficult to give an overall one-size-fits-all setting.

*) First layer : 100 - 150% of first layer thickness.

*) Novamid® can be used with a range of nozzle temperature (220–245 °C / 428–473°F). Preferred temperature to print your object is 230°C / 446°F. To generate a homogeneous melt, the melt temperature should always be above 225°C / 437°F. Optimal mechanical properties will be achieved at melt temperature between (225-245 °C / 437°F–473°F).

*)  Print speed: 50 - 100 mm/s (obeying the maximal throughput in cm3/s of the extruder). Print speed for "normal" nozzle size (0.4mm) and layer height (0.2mm), for other values print speed should be adjusted accordingly!

*)  Do only remove printed object from print bed when print bed has cooled down to ambient temperatures, as otherwise printed part can deform severely.

*) Retraction dependent on printer type and filament diameter.

Storage and conditioning

Novamid® ID1030 CF10 grades are supplied in airtight, moisture-proof packaging at a moisture level <0.05 w%. In order to prevent moisture pick up and contamination, supplied packaging should be kept closed and undamaged.

 

In case the filament has become wet, it should be dried. Using a hot air oven at 80°C for at least 4h is recommended. When storing the filament after printing, it is advised to seal the bag and add silica gel to the bag to keep the filament as dry as possible.
