Description

What is PC?

PC stands for polycarbonate and this is a sturdy, hard and transparent material. The most important property of PC is its outstanding impact resistance and durability. PC is ideal for tough environments where materials are put to the test, meaning it can withstand extreme temperatures and pressure.

PC Composition

PC is a plastic that is softened by heating, but it requires very high temperatures before it melts and can be printed. It has a high glass transition temperature of 150°C, meaning it will maintain its structure up to that temperature. PC is best printed in a 3D printer with a closed cabinet and a heated print bed.

PC Properties

PC provides very reliable performance under pressure and high temperatures. It is heat and impact resistant and if printed correctly, is very rigid. The slight flexibility of PC allows it to bend without breaking, which can be handy in many applications.

PC Application

High-temperature resistance makes PC ideal for parts that require being strong and rigid, but also for parts that need to resist heat. PC is great for electronic cases or lighting cases because it can withstand heat but can also be transparent. In addition, many safety equipment parts utilize PC's properties.
