Calverton, New York-based Graphene 3D Lab has officially announced the commercial availability of its Conductive Graphene Filament for 3D printing. The new filament is to be distributed through the company's recently launched brand and e-commerce platform, Black Magic 3D.

The filament incorporates highly conductive proprietary nano-carbon materials to enhance the properties of PLA, therefore it is compatible with most commercially available 3D printers. The conductive filament can be used to print conductive traces (similar to as used in circuit boards) within 3D printed parts for electronics.

Graphene 3D CEO Daniel Stolyarov commented, "We anticipate a wide variety of applications, including the 3D printing of conductive traces and capacitive touch sensors. We are looking forward to receiving continued feedback from the 3D printing community as we proceed with the development of a wide range of filaments with functional capabilities."

The properties of this Conductive Graphene Filament:

  • Volume Resistivity: 1 ohm-cm (the measure of a material's resistance to electricity within a cubic centimeter of material)
  • Color: Black
  • Diameter: 1.75 mm
  • Size: 200 grams
  • Electrical Conductivity

According to the company, the Conductive Graphene Filament may also be used for following applications:

  • High-Strength mechanical and functional parts: Because the filament is mechanically stronger than ABS and PLA, it can be used to 3D print functional parts such as: hooks, hand-tools, and parts which require tooling, including drilling.
  • Sensors: This filament can be used to create capacitive (touch) sensors used to measure proximity, position, humidity, fluid levels, and acceleration.
  • Conductive Traces: Another application of Conductive Graphene Filament is in the creation of electrically conductive circuitry for use in electronics, including interfacing computers, Arduino boards, powering LED's, wearable electronics.
  • Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Shielding: capable of use in EMI and RF shielding applications critical for use in a range of industries, including telecommunications, medical device, packaging, aerospace, and automotive industries.

The Conductive Graphene Filament can be purchased for $65 per 200 gram spool.

so how does this compare with carbon fibre filaments? Those do not offer the strength associated with standard carbon fibre materials and tend to wear out your extruder fast. Is this graphene product just another one of those but using the graphene buzzword?
