Stronger than ABS and more wear resistant, PC-ABS Alloy brings strength and high temperature resistance to ABS 3D printing filament.

Compatibility Alert:
A tool head equipped with our LulzBot Hexagon Hot End is required due to the high ideal printing temperature range.

Print Surface Recommendation:
Applying a glue stick (such as Elmer's® brand) directly to the print surface before starting your LulzBot 3D printer is strongly recommended for increased printed object adhesion.

Features

By combining the bonding properties of ABS with the strength and higher extrusion temperature of polycarbonate, this premium alloy is perfect for small parts ready for use in the field. Choose PC-ABS Alloy for custom brackets, connectors, clasps, and housings.
