Applications that require non-metallic materials will profit significantly from polymer carbon composites. This material is temperature resistant up to 200 °C - without creeping effects common among other polymers. Depending on the choice of polymer, properties such as mechanical or chemical stability can be adjusted to customer requirements.
CARBOPRINT P components are made by infiltrating CARBOPRINT C bodies with polymers.
