Advanced Composite Additive Manufacturing for Industrial Applications

CBAM 3D Printing: The parts you need, made in seconds.

Our advanced materials are engineered for exceptional performance, offering a range of properties tailored for demanding applications. Our carbon fiber/PEEK composite boasts an extraordinarily high melting point of 343° C.

Explore our diverse portfolio, of composites, including carbon fiber, fiberglass, PA 12 and high performance PEEK, with tensile strengths to 180 MPa , tensile modulus up to 12 GPa, and heat deflection temperatures greater than 300 C, all rigorously tested to meet the highest standards. We can also produce flame retardant parts that conform with UL 94 V-0.

Whether you’re looking for durability, flexibility, or thermal stability, our materials are designed to exceed expectations in the most challenging environments.

How CBAM Long-Fiber Composites Are Redefining “Industrial Grade”

Our proprietary CBAM technology is the only AM process that combines long-fiber fabrics (versus short or chopped fiber) of carbon fiber or glass with high-performance thermoplastic matrix materials to make composite parts.

Long-fiber (fibers measuring at least 12mm in length), can offer significantly improved performance in strength, toughness and durability, in addition to other properties like dimensional stability and heat and chemical resistance.

Carbon fiber reinforced with advanced composites are used to upgrade from lower cost plastics, lightweight metal parts, or create entirely new parts that aren’t otherwise traditionally possible.

The use of long-fiber materials is one of many reasons that makes our composite 3D printing technology higher performance any other AM technology in the field today along with high performance materials like PEEK.

​Let’s take our carbon fiber PEEK’s material set as an example; which achieves very high chemical and temperature resistance, and mechanical properties superior to most engineering plastics. Carbon fiber PEEK parts are a suitable alternative for aluminum, tooling, spares, repairs and end-use parts.

Carbon fiber PEEK is one of many composite material combinations that our material science team has pioneered into industrial and factory floor settings. Our material team is one of the most experienced in additive manufacturing – and will take on any challenge.

Impossible Objects’ provides 3D printing solutions to many different industries and verticals from simple applications to the most complex.

CBAM composite parts are the future, why wait?

“We are inventors making the impossible – possible.”
