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 135 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.

Bonding & Welding - Polymaker™ PC-ABS parts can be joined together by ultrasonic, vibration, friction, hot plate or laser welding. Polymaker™ PC-ABS parts can be bonded not only to one another, but also to other materials. This is possible using suitable adhesive glues or diffusion adhesive. In the case of adhesive glues, two-component adhesives based on epoxy and silicone resins and polyurethanes have proved excellent. 

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.
