MakerBot PC-ABS & PC-ABS FR


Print Durable and Heat-resistant Prototypes and End-use Parts

PC-ABS is a strong, engineering-grade material that has both a high heat resistance and high impact resistance. When ABS does not provide a high enough impact resistance, but high heat resistance is still required, PC-ABS is a great alternative, due to the addition of polycarbonate.


Flame Retardant

PC-ABS FR is a flame retardant version of PC-ABS. Flame retardance is a common requirement for materials used in the production passenger carrying vehicles such as rail cars and automobiles and airplanes. The benefit being that FR extinguishes flames preventing the spread of fire.


End-use Parts

Short-run production with PC-ABS can be achieved for extremely low-volume products with the benefit of avoiding costly tooling. These parts can permanently replace injection molded pieces, or temporarily supplement them in the case of supply-chain disruption.
