Description

PCTG is characterised by a much higher impact strength compared to similar materials (e.g. PET-G). It achieves results in the region of 90 kJ/m2 (PET-G: 5-8 kJ/m2) in the Izod test (notched sample). PCTG also withstands higher temperatures (up to 76°C).

This filament does not require a heated chamber, which makes it ideal for use with home printers. It ensures high dimensional stability, while low shrinkage prevents the model from cracking. This makes it an easy-to-print material, even for people without a lot of experience in 3D printing.

Due to the strong adhesion to the bed, it is not recommended to print directly on its surface or on glass. This can lead to damage. We recommend using a masking tape.

Fiberlogy PCTG is recyclable and approved for contact with food *. The material is BPA free.
* applies only to the Pure TR version

Please note, postage within the UK is included in the price you see.

PC

Overview

High strength, impact resistance, and high heat deflection. Used in engineering applications.

PC Has a minor flexibility property and can be lightly bent without breaking. It has outstanding thermal properties, being flame retardant and having very high heat resistance.

PC requires high extruder and bed temperatures. An enclosure is needed to keep the material warm while printing.  Prints can warp, and layers may not bond together if the temperature is too low or if cooling is enabled. It is hygroscopic, meaning it easily absorbs moisture from the air – spools should always be stored in dry air-tight places.

Used for: Car Parts, Electronic Casings, 3D Printer Parts.
