CarbonX PEKK-A by 3DXTech utilises one of the highest performance polymers available today (PolyEtherKetoneKetone) and combines it with premium chopped carbon fibre to create a filament with mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance comparable to PEEK, but significantly easier to print. Indeed after annealing, CF PEKK-A has been shown to out-perform PEEK in many areas, making it a more reliable alternative.
- Made with 60/40 PEKK copolymer
- Easier to print than PEEK
- Good chemical resistance, including alcohols, automotive fluids and aqueous solutions
- Low smoke generation - ideal for aerospace applications
- Outstanding mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance

Additional Tips For 3D Printing CF PEKK-A
- Due to abrasive fibres present in this filament, it is strongly recommended to use hardened nozzles with a minimum diameter of 0.4mm when printing, to reduce wear.
- Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter - Minimum layer height of 0.25mm
