We are proud to announce the brand new PolyMaker PC-Plus PolyCarbonate filament has been officially released and is now available to buy from our online store!
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-Plus, this age-old material has found a new youth in the burgeoning industry of 3D printing.
Polymaker PC-Plus offers better heat resistance than almost all other 3D printing materials currently in the market. It can withstand temperatures well above 110 ºC and parts made with Polymaker PC-Plus show much improved mechanical strength compared to ABS and PLA under almost all testing conditions.
These qualities make PC-Plus a great solution for parts that require high tensile strength and its heat resistant properties could make it a great material to print parts that are exposed to higher temperatures such as parts and attachments for lighting and filming equipment, parts that receive a lot of direct sunlight and even homemade mug coasters!

PC-PolyPlus is currently available in three colours, Natural Translucent, True White and True Black. It can also 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.
We are excited to see what our customers print with the latest addition to the PolyMaker range, PC-Plus!
