Ultimaker PC (Polycarbonate)

With Ultimaker PC (polycarbonate) material, print parts that are tough, strong, and retain dimensional stability when subjected to temperatures as high as 110 ºC. Our polycarbonate 3D printing material properties make it perfect for printing molds, tools, functional prototypes, and parts for short-run manufacturing.


Reasons to Choose Ultimaker PC

Summary

Ultimaker PC material is a top choice material for engineers and manufacturers who require parts that need to retain its strength, toughness, and shape while operating in high-temperature environments.

  • Resists temperatures and retains form up to 110°C
  • Flame retardant characteristics
  • Transparent option for translucent parts
  • High toughness, especially for non-transparent options

Properties

Some of the key mechanical properties of Ultimaker PC include:

  • Good tensile strength (59.7 MPa at break)
  • High impact strength (Charpy tested to 3.41 J/m)
  • High melting temperature (Mass flow rate at 300 °C: 23 - 26 g/10 min)
  • Glass transition at 112 - 113°C

Applications

Ultimaker PC is ideal for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Functional prototyping
  • Tooling
  • Molds
  • Short-run manufacturing
  • Industrial modeling
  • End-use parts

Compatibility

Ultimaker PC material is officially supported for single material prints with the Ultimaker S5, Ultimaker S3, Ultimaker 3 series, and Ultimaker 2+ series of 3D printers.

Example Prints Using Ultimaker PC

Dimensionally Stable

Ultimaker PC has heat resistant properties that allow it to maintain its form when exposed to high temperatures.

Strong and Tough

From prototypes to mass manufactured parts, PC material is ideal for a range of functional applications that require extreme toughness.

Optical Transluscency

PC filament is an amorphous polymer, for effective light transmission through 3D printed parts.
