Polymaker PC-ABS

Polymaker™ PC-ABS

Polymaker™ PC-ABS is a PC/ABS polymer blend which offers excellent toughness and heat resistance while displaying good surface finish and good compatibility with metal plating.

FEATURES

Excellent Toughness - Polymaker™ PC-ABS offers best in class toughness while combining the heat resistance of PC with the flexibility of ABS. An ideal choice for engineering and industrial applications, Polymaker™ PC-ABS displays a synergic effect resulting in superior impact resistance when compared to regular PC or ABS filaments.

Heat Resistant - Polymaker™ PC-ABS offers better heat resistance than a wide variety of material types, withstanding temperatures up to 109 ºC.

Good Surface Finish - Polymaker™ PC-ABS renders parts with a good surface finish and displays good surface adhesion which makes it easier to post process. Polymaker™ PC-ABS is well-suited for painting. bonding and specialized for surface finishings, i.e. by electroplating and metallization.

Formulated For 3D Printing - Using Covestro’s Bayblend® family as its base material, Polymaker™ PC-ABS is specifically engineered for 3D printing to combine excellent mechanical properties and printing quality. Bayblend® is a commonly used plastic in the automotive and information technology industry. 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.
