High Performance, Easy Printing...It's World's Best CF!

Proto-pasta's High Temp Carbon Fiber PLA (HTPLA-CF) combines engineering-grade performance with the ease and eco-friendliness of PLA printing. Since kickstarting the World's First 3D Printable Carbon Fiber PLA and our original High Temp PLA, we've wanted to combine the two for a "super-material". Why is this material "the best"?
Compared to ABS and PET-like materials, HTPLA-CF has:
  • Easier and more reliable printing
    • No heated bed required
    • Lower processing temperatures, like standard PLA
    • Less warping and distortion when processing
  • More temperature resistance* for maintaining properties to higher temperatures
    • ABS and PET get soft at 80C +/- 10C
    • HTPLA-CF maintains properties up to 120C or more (*when annealed)
  • Higher strength and better strength-to-weight ratio for stronger parts with less material
  • Improved surface hardness for less wear in abrasive environments
  • Less shrinkage and distortion for more accurate parts
  • Higher stiffness so parts hold their shape
  • Renewable biopolymer with low odor
  • Highly desirable black finish
Compared to the Original Carbon Fiber PLA, HTPLA-CF has:
  • Improved toughness for less breaking when handling and easier processing
  • Higher HDT when annealed for maintaining properties to higher temperatures.
