Recreus launches new PET-G CF filament

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Recreus is launching the new PET-G CF filament for 3D printing, a material with excellent mechanical properties to guarantee high impact-resistant parts without relinquishing the ease of PET-G printing.

Recreus started the year committed to innovation and to continue increasing its product portfolio with state-of-the-art materials. The company is inaugurating 2022 by launching a new material: PET-G CF, a PET-G-based filament reinforced with carbon fiber.

PET-G with an extra ingredient

The new PET-G CF is a PET-G (polyethylene terephthalate glycol) based filament, which is also composed of carbon fiber nanoparticles. It is characterized by its impact and wear-resistance, chemical and high thermal resistance, as well as its high tenacity and low density.

Considering PET-G filament as a suitable and powerful material for the creation of technical and industrial parts, the CFF version further increases its properties. As a result, 3D printed parts achieve an elastic modulus three times higher and a breaking strength 5 times higher than with conventional PET-G. It also has better dimensional stability and accuracy and a superior ability to resist deformation.

Applications for PET-G CF

PET-G CF is a very attractive material for many industries, a filament recommended for parts that have to withstand impacts or need to have good strength. It is ideal for the production of electronics, machinery, automobiles and household appliances, as well as for creating chassis and enclosures, bicycle parts, accessories and textiles, casing covers or medical parts, such as prostheses or accessories and components for orthopedic mechanisms, among many others.

For printing PET-G CF Recreus recommends using hardened steel or ruby type nozzles, avoiding brass nozzles that tend to erode easily. In addition, a printing temperature of 245-260 °C, with a bed temperature of 70°C should be implemented, maintaining a printing speed of 40-60 mm/s and a retraction speed of 20-50 mm/s at a distance of 1-2 mm.
