Carbodeon PLA + uDiamond Filament

Nanodiamond enhanced 3D filament


Availability: In-Stock Now

Carbodeon uDiamond® PLA (polylactic acid) is a high-performance diamond enhanced 3D printing filament. It contains functionalized nanodiamond particles. Nanodiamonds are spherical and act as lubricant in the filament extrusion, causing no increase in nozzle wear. The enhanced thermal conductivity of the material enables printing speed up to 500mm/s.


Carbodeon PLA + uDiamond Filament

Carbodeon PLA + uDiamond Filament is a high-performance diamond enhanced 3D printing filament. It contains functionalized nanodiamond particles. Nanodiamonds are spherical and act as lubricant in the filament extrusion, causing no increase in nozzle wear. This means you can print this material with standard brass nozzles, unlike other carbon-reinforced materials. The enhanced thermal conductivity of the material enables significantly faster printing speeds (up to 500mm/s, depending on your 3D printer's capabilities).

The diamond particles also reinforce the polymer structure, improving the stiffness, strength and adhesion between printed layers. The material also has a significantly higher temperature resistance than standard PLA, with a heat deflection temperature of 107C (125C for annealed components). The filament is suitable for consumer-grade and professional FDM/FFF 3D printers. The unique combination of stiffness, strength, wear resistance and unique thermal features makes it an excellent choice for functional mechanical prints.
