High performance material for high performance hardware. Heated bed and all-metal hotend recommended! Proto-pasta Polycarbonate-ABS Alloy is an incredibly tough material designed for strong, resilient parts. Properties are excellent and greatly improved over standard ABS.

ZORTRAX USERS: This is an excellent alternative PC-ABS material that prints flawlessly on the M200 using standard Z-Suite PC-ABS settings!
  • Processing is more challenging. For best results, a heated bed is required to control warpage and improve layer adhesion. Cross-sectional area should be minimized.

  • Available in 1.75 mm and 2.85 (3) mm diameters, black or natural color

  • 500g is on a 8" diameter spool
  • PC-ABS is moisture sensitive.

    Even when stored in a bag with desiccant, drying in an oven for ~ 1hr at 85C-95C may be required for bubble free high strength prints.

  • In our experience, good results are achieved when printing small parts at 270-290C on a heated bed at 110C up to 140C. For larger prints with good layer adhesion and minimal distortion, an enclosure is ideal.
