POLYCARBONATE(PC)

POLYCARBONATE(PC)

Introduction

  • Hygroscopic (so store it in a cool, dry place to ensure better quality prints)
  • PC is moderately flexible (though not as much as nylon)
  • Extremely durable and resistant to both physical impact and heat, able to withstand temperatures of up to 110°C
  • Not food safe
  • Transparent which explains its use in commercial items such as bullet proof glass, scuba masks, and electronic display screens.

Applications

  • PC is an ideal 3D printer filament for parts that need to retain their strength, toughness, and shape in high-temperature environments, such as electrical, mechanical, or automotive components.
  • We can also take advantage of its optical clarity in lighting projects or for screens.
  • Extremely strong, impact resistant thermoplastic material so it is widely used in automotive and aerospace sectors.
  • Biocompatible and can be sterilisable so can be used in medical sector.
