BASF Ultrafuse® PAHT CF15

BASF Ultrafuse® PAHT CF15 is an industrial-grade filament with a special formulation consisting of a polyamide base and a 15% addition of micro-carbon fibers. Thanks to that, the filament combines the durability of nylon with rigidity of carbon fiber, while still retaining easy processability.

This high-performance filament shows high stiffness, high dimensional stability, and chemical resistance. What’s more, PAHT CF15 withstands the temperatures reaching up to 145 °C. The filament is a perfect fit for projects in engineering, robotics, automotive, aerospace, and other industries working in harsh conditions.

BASF Ultrafuse PAHT CF15 has strong abrasive properties, therefore, a hardened steel nozzle with a diameter of 0.6 mm should be used when 3D printing.
