High performance material for high performance hardware.
Heated bed and all-metal hotend recommended!
Proto-pasta Polycarbonate-ABS Alloy is an incredibly tough material designed for strong, resilient parts. Properties are excellent and greatly improved over standard ABS.
Processing is more challenging. For best results, a heated bed is required to control warpage and improve layer adhesion. Cross-sectional area should be minimized.
Available in 1.75 mm and 2.85 (3) mm diameters, black or natural color
500g is on a 8" diameter spool
PC-ABS is 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 are achieved when printing small parts at 270-290C on a heated bed at 110C up to 140C. For larger prints with good layer adhesion and minimal distortion, an enclosure is ideal.
