PC-ABS filament is a mix of polycarbonate and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS).
PC-ABS filament is a mix of polycarbonate and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). It is very popular due to its high mechanical performance, lightweight, and expended lifetime. This filament is ideal for application in the automotive, electronic, and telecommunication industries. Azurefilm PC ABS combines the strength and heat resistance of polycarbonate and the elasticity of ABS. It has excellent temperature resistance up to 100 °C and it also offers excellent toughness, strength, chemical resistance against alcohols, oils, greases, ozone, and water while displaying a smooth surface finish. We recommend printing it in a heated chamber (closed 3d printer). Since it is partly ABS, you need to keep a stable environment (room temperature 20-25˚C) and make sure to ventilate the room after printing.
For good results, you must print it in a closed 3D printer at a temperature of 260–280°C, and the printing table should be heated to 90-110°C. Please note that the temperature range of the print media may slightly differ depending on the use of other printers.
• Pros: Flexible, strong, durable, heat resistant, overall excellent mechanical performance
• Cons: Susceptible to moisture, you need a printer with a chamber
Strength: High| Flexibility: Medium | Durability: High
Difficulty to use: Medium | Shrinkage/warping: Minimal
Soluble: No | Food Safety: Non toxic, but not food safe
