Polymaker PC-Max™ is an advanced polycarbonate based filament designed specifically for desktop FDM/FFF 3D printing. In addition to high printing quality, great mechanical strength and heat resistance, Polymaker PC-Max™ offers excellent impact strength and fracture toughness, making it the ideal choice for engineering applications.
Extreme Toughness: Polymaker PC-Max™ offers the absolute best in toughness that is simply unobtainable from other 3D printing materials of similar stiffness. This makes Polymaker PC-Max™ an excellent choice for real-world, engineering applications.
Heat Resistance: Polymaker PC-Max™ offers better heat resistance than almost all other 3D printing materials currently in the market. It can withstand temperatures well above 110 ºC.
Easy Printing: PC used to be the monopoly for only those expensive, “industrial” FDM machines. Well, not any more. Polymaker PC-Max™ is designed specifically for desktop 3D printing, with moderate printing temperatures and excellent warping resistance.
Let’s Talk Engineering: For over 60 years Polycarbonate (PC) has become one of the most widely used engineering plastics and helped shape the modern world. Now with Polymaker PC-Max™ this age-old material has found a new youth in the burgeoning industry of 3D printing.
Excellent Mechanical Strength: Parts made with Polymaker PC-Max™ shows much improved mechanical strength compared to ABS and PLA under almost any deformation test.
Post-Process Capabilities: Polymaker PC-Max™ can be easily post-processed. Sand your print to achieve either a beautiful smooth surface or spray it with a clear coat of lacquer to obtain a glass-like transparency.
Uncompromised Quality: With our eight step quality control process and rigorous in-house testing, you can rest assured that Polymaker PC-Max™ will produce beautiful, reliable and accurate printed parts every time.
