Filament Kimya ABS Carbon
The Kimya ABS Carbon combines the properties of extremely popular thermoplastic ABS with carbon fibers (CF). This blend ends up with plenty of advantages for professional users.
The filament is a member of the styrenic polymer group, and it belongs to amorphous, commodity filaments. Printing with pure ABS is easy and (because of that) very popular. The merger of ABS and enzymatic carbon fiber elevates some key qualities of the filament and increases the number of possible applications. Compared to traditional ABS, Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene with Carbon fiber shows better rigidity and tensile modulus. It has significantly less shrinkage, too. Additionally, printing with this filament opens the possibility to create lighter and less fragile printouts, which is an important factor why many users choose the Kimya ABS Carbon over other materials. As it is with standard ABS, this material should be printed in a heated chamber to fully benefit from its mechanical properties. Printing without the chamber will lead to weaker and not accurate prints.
Key benefits of ABS Carbon
· low warping and shrinking,
· increased dimensional stability,
· limited weight of prints,
· greater tensile strength modulus,
· upgraded compression and traction resistance.
Industrial applications of ABS Carbon
Having in mind the mentioned advantages of ABS-CF, it is easy to point out industries that can benefit from printing with Kimya ABS Carbon. Tools, frames, shells, and casings can be made out of ABS Carbon. This thermoplastic works well for prototyping, tooling, and design check.
Kimya ABS Carbon: good to know
What is worth mentioning, this material consists Styrene thus it can generate toxic fumes and hazardous vents. That’s why a professional 3D printer equipped with a filtration unit and closed chamber is recommended to prevent potential health issues. These requirements meet our flagship industrial 3D printers: INDUSTRY F421 and INDUSTRY F350. Both machines can be successfully used to print with ABS Carbon. The Kimya ABS Carbon is compatible with 3DGence ESM-10 water-soluble support material.
