Polycarbonates (PC) are among the most widely used industrial thermoplastics owing to the material’s excellent impact strength and temperature resistance. The mechanical properties of PC make this material ideal for demanding engineering environments or applications requiring high flexural strength and tensile strength.

How Does Fused Deposition Modeling Work?

FDM is a filament-based technology where a temperature-controlled head extrudes a thermoplastic material layer by layer onto a build platform. A support structure is created where needed and built in a water-soluble material.
