69,95

Overview

PET CF15 (Polyethylene Terephthalate carbon fiber reinforced) is the easiest material filled with carbon fiber to print and can be printed directly on glass. It combines high dimensional stability and very low moisture absorption for applications in humid operating environments. The heat-resistant property, strength, and stiffness make this filament highly suitable for a wide range of industrial applications.
