This filament might not be compatible with the Ultimaker Material Station.
This is an abrasive filament that will wear down brass nozzles. We recommend upgrading to a steel or ruby nozzle.
PET CF15 (Carbon Fiber) Filament 2.85mm by BASF Ultrafuse

BASF | Ultrafuse PET CF15 is a functional 3D printing material optimized to meet your requirements. Its high dimensional stability and very low moisture absorption make it a perfect material in a humid environment. The heat-resistant property, strength, and stiffness of PET CF15 make this filament highly suitable for a wide range of industrial applications.

      Shop3D Test Notes
      PET CF15 is an abrasive filament so it requires a steel or Ruby nozzle to print. There are particles of carbon fiber suspended in the filament so it is prone to clogging if the flow and temperature settings are incorrect. Based on our tests, it is best to print PET CF15 with a 0.6mm Ruby nozzle or larger. And at layer heights of 0.2mm. Too small of a layer height can cause clogging.
      Overview

      Key properties of BASF | Ultrafuse PET CF15

      • High dimensional stability
      • Heat resistant up to 74°C
      • Very low moisture absorption
      • Low abrasion
      • Compatible with soluble support
      • Strong and stiff parts
      • Excellent surface finish

      BASF Ultrafuse PET CF15 combines easy processability, very low moisture uptake and affordability with great strength and stiffness. Applications that require strong and stiff parts with an excellent surface finish will benefit from PET CF15.

      PET CF15 is a unique composite material that produces parts with a matte black satin textured finish. Perfect for applications where the final part needs to be strong, rigid, lightweight, and have that 'carbon fiber' look and feel. It's solid, stiff and has a satisfying sandy texture to the surface. The surface quality also hides most printing lines and imperfections creating a much more prestigious feel that doesn't look printed.

      Compared to similar carbon fiber composite materials like Fiber Force Nylon/CF and Nylon/GF, BASF Ultrafuse PET CF15 is a lot more rigid; resisting deformations a lot more, but as a result, less impact resistant. There are certain applications where flex is not a desirable trait, and this is where the PET CF15 will fill the need much better than Nylon CF.

      PET CF15 is also less sensitive to moisture as Nylon CF and is more dimensionally stable and easier to print as it adheres to the bed slightly better than Nylon parts which can warp.

      This spool comes in 2.85mm diameter filament spool of 750gr.
