PolyMax PC-FR

PolyMax™ PC-FR

PolyMax™ is a family of advanced 3D printing filaments produced with Polymaker’s Nano-reinforcement technology, to deliver exceptional mechanical properties and printing quality.

PolyMax™ PC-FR is a flame retardant PC filament (UL94V-0/1.5 mm) displaying excellent toughness, strength and heat resistance. This filament opens new applications in the automotive, railway and aerospace industries.

FEATURES

Flame Retardant - V0 performance in the UL94 flame retardancy test, PolyMax™ PC-FR benefits applications where respective material approval is required.

Fantastic Toughness - An excellent choice for engineering applications, Polymaker has introduced its nano reinforcement technology that is featured in all PolyMax™ materials. This boosts the fracture toughness of the FR material and produces a flame-retardant filament that can still perform in demanding applications.

Heat Resistant - PolyMax™ PC-FR offers better heat resistance than a wide variety of material types, withstanding temperatures well above 110 ºC.

Improved Printability - PolyMax™ PC-FR has been engineered specifically with compatibility and usability in mind. PolyMax™ PC-FR not only offers excellent properties and print quality, but also improved printability when compared to other PC filaments. Enclosure and 90°C heated bed required; a heated chamber is highly recommended.

Uncompromised Quality - Polymakers leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing ensure reliable printing and consistency across spools and batches.
