Proto-Pasta Composite PLA – Original Carbon Fiber
The original is still the best. World’s First Carbon Fiber PLA kickstarted by ProtoPlant more than 2 years ago.
Diameter = 1.75 mm
Spool Size = 500 g
Made from the highest quality, dry ingredients. Your prints will be more rigid with easy processing (often using standard PLA settings) and support removal. Excellent layer adhesion and minimal warping even without a heated bed. Layer lines disappear with the matte finish. Has a slight sheen due to the embedded carbon.Usable on most PLA-compatible printers. Processing is comparable to standard PLA. No heated bed required. Process may be less consistent on smaller nozzles and/or Bowden-type machines.
This filament is slightly more abrasive than standard PLA. Be prepared to replace your nozzle and do first layer adjustment after prolonged use or upgrade to a wear-resistant nozzle for less maintenance. Manufacturer frequently prints using direct-drive systems with 0.4mm nozzles and print as high as 240C, though suggest 0.6mm and 210-230C for the best experience.
In filament form, slightly more brittle than standard PLA – requires extra care when handling.
