MaterialGuide PC-ABS

PC-ABS (Polycarbonate & Acrylnitril-Butadien-Styrol Copolymere) has a higher impact resistance than standard ABS, but easier to print than PC. The material shows minimal wear after continuing use. The layer adhesion is much better in comparison to regular PC. You get the best of both materials. PC in addition with ABS shows a stable print process, that makes the material perfect for mechanical parts and tools, which should be light and strong. PC-ABS is printable with a nozzle temperature form 245-275°C and a heated bed with 85-95°C, coated with PrintaStick.
