    What is Polycarbonate

    Polycarbonate is a transparent and amorphous plastic, with good mechanical properties and admissible operating temperature up to 135ºC discovered by H. Schnell (Bayer) in the middle of the 20th century. Its use spread quickly by the industry, mainly by the electrical industry, thanks to the development of properties oriented towards the electric sector.

    In actuality it is common to find pieces made in PC in homes, industry or architecture thanks to its great impact resistance, temperature and transparent surface finish. The main fields of application of the PC are: electronics and electricity, food, toys, office equipment and engineering.

    PC-Max: The PC filament that revolutionized 3D printing

    The PC has characteristics of mechanical resistance and even surface finish, superior to the materials that are commonly used in the field of 3D printing (ABS or PLA) but with one drawback, its printing temperature is usually 300-320ºC, that limits its use only to industrial 3D printers, which are capable of achieving those temperatures in the HotEnd, but at the same time they are inaccessible for the price for many typical users such as designers, architects and amateurs.

    This problem is totally solved thanks to PC-Max, a high quality polycarbonate that can be used by most desktop 3D printers (extrusion temperature: 250-270ºC). This has been possible thanks to the fact that Covestro (former Bayer, creator of polycarbonate) has collaborated with PolyMaker, transmitting its knowledge, as well as polycarbonate in primary form, from which, Polymaker has improved the formula to adjust it to the requirements of the 3d print.
