POLYCARBONATE is a high-performance plastic that possesses a unique balance of toughness, dimensional stability, optical clarity, high heat resistance and excellent electrical resistance. PC is commonly used to make all sorts of products including bullet-proof glass, riot shields, cellphone exteriors and many other products that require an engineering grade material. We recommend PC for more experienced users that are looking to extend their filament options.

Polycarbonate features:

  • Great strength & stiffness
  • High optical clarity
  • Resistant to high temperatures up to 140˚C
  • Low flammability (UL-94 V2)

Additional information

Recommend temperature for the heated bed is ≥100°C. PC is printed at a high temperature to make the final product extra strong. PC can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.


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