PC-ABS

PC-ABS is an incredibly strong filament with an even higher impact resistance than our regular ABS. This is a consequence of the addition of the proper amount of polycarbonate in this modification, which also creates a nearly perfect interlayer adhesion and a beautiful surface gloss. The above features, combined with a highly stable printing process makes PC-ABS the perfect material for mechanical parts and tools, which should be light and strong and show minimal wear after prolonged use.

PC-ABS features:

  • Improved interlayer adhesion
  • High impact resistance
  • High surface gloss
  • Stable printing process

Packaging

PC-ABS is available in nearly any type of packaging and labelling. Ask our team to help you customizing your product.

Additional information

Recommended temperature for heated bed is 100-110°C. We recommend kapton and / or pva glue stick for adhesion.
PC-ABS can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.

Storage

Cool and dry (15-25 ˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
