Material

PC-ABS

PC-ABS combines the flexural strength and thermal resistance of polycarbonate with the flexibility of ABS, offering one of the highest impact strengths of any FDM thermoplastic. This material is an ideal choice for concept modeling and early prototypes, as well as functional prototypes, tooling, and end-use parts in demanding environments such as the automotive and electronics industries.
