Carbon Fiber PLA

Proto-Pasta Carbon Fiber PLA (CFPLA) is one of our best selling materials and, with its matte black finish, one of our favorites. Consisting of 15% by weight chopped carbon fiber, CFPLA results in substantially lighter and more rigid results compared to standard PLA. CFPLA does not require a heated bed, and our high-temperature G2 Extruder meets the material's higher temperature requirements easily. CFPLA is perfect for performance applications when stability, rigidity and weight reductions are critical.
