Polycarbonate ABS (PC-ABS) - White - 2.85mm
HIGH PERFORMANCE MATERIAL FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE HARDWARE.
HEATED BED AND 260C+ HOT-END RECOMMENDED!
Proto-pasta Polycarbonate-ABS (PC-ABS) Alloy is an incredibly tough material designed for strong, resilient parts.
PC-ABS appearance is bright glossy white/natural.
Properties are excellent and greatly improved over standard ABS.
Processing is more challenging. For best results, a heated bed is recommended to control warpage and improve layer adhesion. Cross-sectional area should be minimized.
PC-ABS is also very moisture sensitive. Even when stored in a bag with desiccant, drying in an oven for ~ 1hr at 85C-95C may be required for bubble free high strength prints.
In our experience, good results were achieved when printing small parts at 260C-280C using a .5mm nozzle and direct-drive spring loaded pinch-roll style extrusion head. For larger prints with good layer adhesion, 270C+ hot end, 140C+ heated bed, and an enclosure are ideal.
STORAGE: One large resealable bag with slider + an extra desiccant pack are included with every spool. The bag and extra desiccant are a great way to safely store your filament spool when not in use. It keeps your filament bone dry & free from any dust or dirt particles, so it's always ready for your next print.
