PolyMax™ PC

PolyMax™ is a family of advanced 3D printing filaments produced with Polymaker’s Nano-reinforcement technology, to deliver exceptional mechanical properties and printing quality. PolyMax™ PC (formerly known as PC-Max™) is an engineered PC filament combining excellent strength, toughness, heat resistance and printing quality. It is the ideal choice for a wide range of engineering applications. 

PolyMax™ PC features Polymaker's Nano-reinforcement technology:

Nano-reinforcement - Nano-reinforcement technology is applied to produce filaments with excellent mechanical properties and printing quality. It dramatically improves the toughness of the material by increasing its impact resistance.

PolyMax™ PC Features

Excellent Toughness - An excellent choice for engineering applications, PolyMax™ PC offers best in class toughness with much improved mechanical strength when compared to ABS and ASA and significantly improved impact resistance when compared to PolyLite™ PC.

Heat Resistant - PolyMax™ PC offers better heat resistance than a wide variety of material types, withstanding temperatures well above 110 ºC.

Improved Printability - PolyMax™ PC has been engineered specifically with compatibility and usability in mind. PolyMax™ PC not only offers excellent properties and print quality, but also benefits in printability when compared to other PC filaments. With a lower extrusion temperature (250 - 270˚C), PolyMax™ PC is an accessible PC filament that can be printed on a wider range of 3D printers. 90°C heated bed required.

Uncompromised Quality - Polymakers leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing ensure reliable printing and consistency across spools and batches.

Magigoo PC

MAGIGOO PC is designed to work exclusively with polycarbonate type filaments. This adhesive for professional use makes sure prints stick firmly when the print-bed is hot and that the part is easy to remove once it cools. This unique and innovative mechanism means that no tools are needed to remove prints from the bed. They just pop off when the bed cools down.

The strength and toughness of PC make it an ideal FDM material for the production of functional prototypes as well as end use part, nonetheless the material does present some printing challenges. Certain manufacturers have improved the printability of PC by the use of plasticizers or blending with other materials. Nonetheless when using these solutions some difficulties are still encountered, firstly with adhesion especially on larger parts still can be an issue. In addition to this some bed adhesion sheets have been proposed to avoid the warp encountered in larger prints, but in this case there is a high tendency that the adhesion sheet being used fuses irreversibly to the print. This means that the expensive sheet needs to be removed very often and also incurs a lot of post processing and cleaning.

Magigoo PC can be used on glass or multiple other surfaces. Use on other plastic based surfaces, including sheets is recommended to provide strong adhesion and preventing the part to fuse to the sheet.

Annealing Settings

To maximize part performance it is recommended to anneal the printed part right after the printing process to release the residual internal stress.

Time 2 Hours
Temperature (˚C) 100˚C

Storage & Drying

MAGIGOO PC is best stored upright, with the cap closed and away from direct sunlight.

Before packaging, PolyMax™ PC is dried to ensure the best printing quality and filaments are vacuum sealed to protect the filament from moisture.

While not a strict requirement to use PolyMax™ PC, we recommend that the material be used with the PolyBox™ or a dry cabinet during printing to keep the filament at dry conditions (relative humidity of 15% or less) to prevent moisture absorption which will lower the quality and the mechanical properties of the print.

When not in use PolyMax™ PC should be stored away from sunlight in the packaged resealable bag. If the filament does absorb moisture, spools of PolyMax™ PC can be dried in a preheated convection oven at 80˚C for up to 8 hours. Results may vary depending on the accuracy of your oven so please be conservative. For more information about filament drying please read our user guide.

Technical Data

We have full SDS and technical data sheets for PolyMax™ PC and Magigoo PC. Contact us to enquire!


Compatibility

PolyMax™ PC has been engineered with compatibility in mind to print excellently on a wide range of professional 3D printers. This material requires a heated bed and we recommend printing with an enclosure or heated chamber for sizeable or thin models.

Of course with thousands of unique 3d printer models on the market, we can't guarantee each filament type will work with every 3D printer.


PolyMax™ PC FAQ

Q: Polymaker manufacture many different PC filaments, which one should I purchase?
A: PolyLite™ PC and PolyMax™ PC are the best choices for users who are interested in 3D printing strong PolyCarbonate parts that don’t have a specialized requirement. These two materials are easier to print when compared to PC filaments from other brands. PolyLite™ PC offers transparency and the best value for general purpose printing and PolyMax™ PC is our most popular PC filament, with boosted toughness and additional benefits in printability. Aside from variances in price and mechanical performance, Polymaker™ PC-ABS, Polymaker™ PC-PBT and PolyMax™ PC-FR offer unique solutions for industrial applications, with excellent mechanical performance and slightly higher printing requirements. Polymaker™ PC-PBT for example offers excellent toughness at subzero temperatures whereas PolyMax™ PC-FR offers the best flame retardancy. To discuss which material is the best for your printer and application, contact us today!

Q: Is this product the same as Polymaker PC-Max™?
A: Yes! Polymaker launched a new naming system to simplify the ever growing product range for customers. During this change the name PC-Max™ was updated as PolyMax™ PC. PolyMax™ is a family of advanced 3D printing filaments produced with Polymaker’s Nano-reinforcement technology.

Q: Does Polymakers Nano-reinforcement technology impact printability?
A: The nano-reinforcement of PolyMax™ PC is NOT a fiber reinforcement,  so customers can confidently print this material with a standard brass nozzle. The good mechanical strength of PolyMax™ PC is achieved with no compromise in printing quality or usability.

Q: Can PC be printed at large scales without warping?
A: A stable high temperature environment is required to print larger PC parts without warping and whether a part is susceptible to warping will vary on how the residual stress releases within the parts geometry. Most users print PC with the heated bed set to 100˚C and an enclosure to passively heat the surrounding environment; this effectively reduces internal stress which cause PC to warp or crack. To guarantee that PC can be printed at any size without warping, 3D printing with a professionally designed heated chamber is required.

Q: Is PolyMax™ PC flame retardant?
A:  PolyMax™ PC is classified with a UL94-V2 rating. For applications requiring the best classification we recommend choosing PolyMax™ PC-FR which is a flame retardant PC filament (UL94V-0/1.5 mm).

Q: What support materials can I use with this product?
A:  Polymaker’s PolyDissolve™ S2 filament is the recommended support filament for PolyMax™ PC. If your 3D printer is not equipped for multi-material, self-support can be used.

Magigoo FAQ

Q: How do I apply Magigoo?
A: It is best to apply Magigoo when the printing bed is cool. Before applying, shake the Magigoo pen like you mean it, press down the nib on the printing bed for Magigoo to flow. Spread more or less evenly on the printing area. It is enough to cover your active print area with an even thin layer. DO NOT SQUEEZE the bottle to avoid applicator popping off. Applicator has a valve which is activated once you push on it.

Q: Do I need to apply Magigoo everytime?
A: For good and reliable adhesion we recommend to apply Magigoo every time.

Q: How do I clean my bed after using Magigoo?
A: After your prints have finished and popped off, clean the printing bed by wiping with a damp cloth. Yes, just water is enough. 

Q: How long will Magigoo last for?
A: One Magigoo 50ml pen is good for on average 100 prints. There is no firm best before date as it will vary depending on use and storing conditions - Once opened, we recommend to use it in a couple of months. 

Q: Will Magigoo work with my existing printing surface?
A: Magigoo was originally formulated with borosilicate glass surfaces in mind however we have also had good success applying Magigoo to surfaces like Buildtak, in these cases Magigoo can work as a release agent for materials which can over-adhere like PET with PEI.
