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

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. For larger prints with good layer adhesion and minimal distortion, an enclosure is ideal.
