Reliable and durable filament for engineering and end-use
PC (Polycarbonate) is a strong thermoplastic 3D printing filament that characterized by its excellent impact resistance, high stiffness, heat resistance, and flame retardant properties. As a result, PC filament can absorb impact, prevent deformation or cracks, and maintain stability under high temperatures and flames. Due to its 110°C heat resistance, PC performs well in high-temperature environments, such as under the hood of a car. Also known for its impact strength, PC is commonly used for producing rigid parts, function testing, finished parts assembly, and manufacturing.

PC or Polycarbonate is one of the advanced industrial thermoplastics, which is extremely tough, durable and with great firmness. PC is known for its great impact strength and it is commonly used for producing rigid parts. PC also has great heat resistance up to 110°C, making it the perfect substitute for metals in high temperature environments (e.g. under car hood in a vehicle). Parts printed with PC are predominately used in later stages of function testing and finished parts assembly. Printed PC parts have been successfully used in the manufacturing application with or without post-finishing.
