PC-ABS (3ntr)

Category: PC-ABS (Polycarbonate Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

Material Information

Name: PC-ABS (3ntr)
Source: 3ntr / Plural Additive Manufacturing
Description:

PC-ABS (polycarbonate + acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is a premium high-heat 3D printing filament. PC-ABS polymer blend has the mechanical properties & high-heat resistance of PC with the printability of ABS, and allows for the printing of functional prototypes and production parts with very fine detail and excellent surface quality. PC-ABS doesn’t change its properties over the course of time and withstands exposure to chemicals including salts, acids, and alkalis.

    General Comments

    Characteristics

    • Superior durability and high tensile strength
    • UV, impact and high temperature resistant
    • Withstands exposure to chemicals including salts, acids, and alkalis
    • Beautiful low-gloss surface finish helps hide layer lines and makes highly technical-looking printed parts

    Applications

    • Functional and high durability prototypes
    • End use parts, consumer products
    • Toolmaking and housings
    • Construction elements
    • Automotive components exposed to impacts and hazardous substances
    • Functional mechanical parts
    • Casings

    Considerations

    • Highly hygroscopic (absorbs moisture): We recommend purchasing a dry box, or Plural's Material Management System (MMS), to help reduce moisture from the storage environment.
    • Requires printing to be done at high extruder temperatures and high bed temperatures

    Printing Skill & Experience - Intermediate

    • Easier to print than PC, yet tougher than ABS
